Thank you Oricom, Great customer support
I had the unfortunate experience of a large duck hitting my Oricom antenna just above the spring and the antenna snapped off. This was not an issue with the quality of the antenna but just an unfortunate incident, I called Oricom as I need a new one and told them what had happened, they have offered to supply a new antenna even though it was not really covered under warranty. Fantastic customer service and I couldn’t recommend them highly enough. I haven’t received the antenna yet but I am sure it’s in the mail and can’t wait to refit.

Quality equipment - great value Touring Combo
Very easy to install and very clear reception. Volume is clear and loud and the larger display is great for safer operation whilst driving. A very solid high quality aerial sets off the whole package - very pleased so far. An extra 500mm of power cable length would be handy for the installation when connecting to the battery terminal.

Touring combo is a great set up.
Love duel recieve. I have the 3db antenna mounted on the rear tub and can still get under carport. If I'm touring it's simple to add on the 6db whip.

Clear and Loud
Nice unit.. Speaker is very clear and loud. Only concern is the the main unit . It is bit bigger and bit hard to hide behind the dash. Otherwise overoll performance is very good. i am very happy.

Upgrade I highly recommend
The DTX4200X has the larger handpiece over the rest of the range which I love! The unit also has a very vibrant multi-colour backlit display which my family consistently changes on our trips. I can not fault the unit, was a breeze to install and easy to operate.

Great radio, stellar build quality with great audio clarity. Very impressed with this radio and would highly recommend it if you want a great radio without the high price tag!
Great for anyone - especially if you have hearing loss issues
After many years in the RAAF I have pretty severe hearing loss, so I have problems understanding the audio from a 2-way but as we're travelling Australia a 2-way is pretty-much an essential. I just upgraded my DTX 4200 to the new Oricom DTX 4200X and I'm really happy with it. The handset is big and chunky and feels great in the hand and it has a high quality curlycord, but most importantly, the sound is crystal clear and the volume is much more than even I need. I used to have to get my wife to interpret what we were hearing but with a very clear audio and higher volume I can hear for myself now. Another 'thumbs-up' for Oricom, well done.

We've had the Oricom DTX4200X installed for a couple of months now and we are absolutely stoked with it. The quality of this UHF is great, when we first unwrapped it out of the packaging the first thing we noticed was the weight of the unit, it's very impressive, feels solid, super comfortable to hold and easy to use once you play around with the controls. We've got it down pat now, the sound is great, lighting on the screen is very clear, easy to read and there are so many great features included in this unit!
A huge congratulations to the Team at Oricom for designing a great bit of gear!

A great product still learning how to use it as my first UHF only problem instructions for use are very complicated and brief for a new user, not used to all the different functions that are available.
Purchased in May 2021 at Oricom.
I recently got the new DTX4200X, and I'm really impressed with the build quality, and improvements. I often get told, out on the highway, I can be heard up to 60km away, and its clear as a bell. Plus I've had instances, where I've heard an on coming oversize convoy, 20mins before I see them. The only issue I had with the new model, was the size of the new hand piece, but I soon got use to that.
Well done Oricom, on a well put together unit
Have a large fleet of Uhf radios in earthmoving machines, tractors and trucks. Probably somewhere around 40 radios. Various brands but probably predominately Oricom nowdays of various models. This is the first of this type which is fitted to an excavator. Monitoring two channels is extremely handy. Speaker microphone is actually better clarity than the top range model from GME. Wheel programming for volume ,channel, squelch etc takes a bit of getting used too but seems to work ok. Just have to look at the little screen very closely to see wha...t you are setting but once done is pretty good. GME type has too.many buttons on microphone so nothing is perfect. Operators like it, value for money is good, reliability of all our Oricom radios has been probably best of all the brands generally so this shouldnt be an issue going forward. Actually have just ordered four more of this model. What dont I like? Nothing to do with this model but Oricom's stupid retailers system where only certain models are sold in certain stores. One model is only Supercheap but not Repco, another might be only a 4wd chain store. You cant even order a microphone from say Repco locally if it is fitted to a Supercheap sold model. Absolutely stupid and has probably stopped me buying a dozen Oricom radios over time when the Oricom retailer near where we are working ( in the country) cant sell me the model I want for a certain machine. Thats a fault with Oricom but not this particular model radio. Anyway, very pleased with this DTX4200 so far.

Questions & Answers
Decided on The Oricom brand for my Ranger. What is the difference between the DTX4200 and DTX4200x also which antenna would suit my application as I have no bull or nudge bar on my Ranger but do have roof racks. Will be traveling (fingers crossed) from Melbourne heading West and returning via Alice Springs. Thanks.
Hi there, thanks for the question. The difference between the DTX4200 and DTX4200X are that the DTX4200X has been built as the new and improved version of the existing model. Both are Dual Receive. The new DTX4200X is louder, larger in the hand and a much larger display screen. Regarding your antenna request, without a bull bar, we would suggest you look at the pack below which you could mount on the roofrack with the right bracket, or on a z mount bracket on the front/hood of your car. See links below:
Cheers guys, thanks heaps for the info.
Good choice Frank, I have the updated one and had the previous model in another vehicle. The X is so much clearer and louder especially when you are travelling at speed with all the road noises. The bigger display is a bonus too!!! Cheers, Ken
