Pros:
This radio is well built and has a very wide range of frequencies. I have just ordered a second one.
I like that you can RX and TX on any frequency of your choice.
the price here is $40 cheaper then ebay and includes postage, best price i found after extensive searching
Cons:
The first one I ordered took ages to arrive and was dead on arivial, however the friendly people a Dealextreme helped me ship it back to them and organised a replacement quickly.
Manual is very light on, i did some google'ing to find a manual that was more in depth, I also noticed that some things that the manuals say that is has are missing and the radio also seems to be locked down, but all good
Other:
Could DX get the px-888 its a model up and has some extra functions. Either way the PX-777 is really good for what you pay and a really robust handheld.
could DX get the programing cable? it does make it much easier to program once you actually have a base set of frequencies saved in your computer.
It is compatible with most headsets and they work well.
Bottomline:
compared to everything else, on all other websites, this was far cheaper and it is a very good radio. Buy it if you want a reliable radio.
