Very poor functional design - have to change channel every single time!

published

This is the worst example of a 2-way I have ever come across.

You can't save the last used channel, meaning that every time you switch it off, you need to change your way through the channels, one-at-a-time, till you get to the one you want, then next time you switch it off, you need to do it all over again. It's bad enough for an adult to have to navigate, but try getting your 6 year old to do this.

Imagine the amateur designers thinking that this is acceptable.

This is such a shame, because it could have been a decent little pair of 2-ways.

Please tell me how to get my money back, this is not acceptable.

Doesn't "memorise" last set channel

Truly, it's really a pain that they don't hold on to the last set channel after switching them off! It's annoying. Oricom, can you please fix this issue or if still under the warranty period, can you replace then with other models (without this problem) or refund our money back?

Good for the $$

published

Needed to be able to communicate with an 80 channel set on a hand held. Picked these up, in a pair, was in a hurry and took the cheapest option. It transmits and recieves clear and the speaker is plenty loud enough. Tough little unit, good on batteries. It does not store the last channel used once turned off though, can be painful. Also there is no way to turn off the "roger" beep.
Price, durability
Can't turn the roger beep off

OK for the price, does the job, but has a small flaw...

Yes it is true they do not hold last channel but you can scroll up OR DOWN so ch 40 is only one down from ch 1. I have used these on all day events, quite adequate 4 $'s

Mine are 80 channels, not 40 (the new CB standard is 80Ch).
Hope you got them cheaper.

My 2 remember the channel. I have it set to ch12 and turn it off, next time I turn it on it is still ch12.
