  • Cheap programmable Walkietalke

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    Cheap, well built. Easy to use and programmable, ok freq range. 440-480 MHz.
    I used SKU 66578 "USB Programming Cable for Kenwood/WouXun/PuXing/QuanSheng Walkie Talkie" together with Kenwood KPG87D software to program it. To make it legal in my country.
    HYT-F3 supports a lot of settings.
    Range acceptable.

    Cons:

    Antenna is not optimal, hard plastic not flexible. Not the same as in picture.
    AC adapter didn't come with Euro plug adapter. Buy SKU 3529, "Flat to Round Power Plug Convertor" works perfect.
    Chinese channel selection voice can't be changed.
    Freq. list not in manual.
    See attached picture for data.

    OtherThoughts:

    Get a better antenna, make sure its optimal for your programmed freq band.

    Bottomline:

    Cheap, programmable and easy to use, get it.
