Great value for money

published

Pleased with package deal. Easy to install. Easy to use. Performs well. All you need, nothing you don't. Seems reasonably well made. I like the removable mike. If you damage it or break a wire etc its easy to replace. Does all I need in a UHF.

Purchased in February 2019 for $200.00.

Bought this one as it came as an all in one including the aerial and we had a small budget.
I was very happy to find is indeed good quality and very clear while in use.
I would happily recommend this to anyone looking for a no fuss, small radio at a great price

Good reputation? Hard to get, easy to lose

I have used oricom for many years, always happy. I purchased the 028 and less than 3mths later I returned it to the retailer as it ceased working. It was sent to oricom to be repaired. Oricom allegedly repaired and posted it back. It was not received by the retailer and although oricom cannot provide proof of delivery, they refuse to rectify the situation, leaving me with no radio, no recourse and out of pocket. Be warned

I can’t remember, sorry. The Oricom was difficult to get working and I had to give up on it.

Hi there, thanks for the message. As instructed on page 16 of the User Guide, your UHF028 allows you to pre-select Duplex operation individually on each of the repeater channels.
Press DPX button, “DPX” icon should disappear on the LCD.
Press the DPX button again to toggle the Duplex function on and off.

We hope that helps, however if you continue to experience difficulty in this, we recommend that you give us a call on 1300 889 785 Mon-Fri 8am-6pm AEST, as the team will be able to assist in walking you through the steps. All the best, Oricom.
