Turns on and off
I purchased the uhf after having one that i sold in another vehicle. the uhf was wired by a auto electrician and kept turning on amd off when i turned the unit on i figured it was a fault install do i re imstalled my self and am still having the same problem. Think i purchased a faulty uhf.
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
Oricom UHF028 Waste of my time
I purchased this UHF in good faith, from an eBay seller who sells a lot of these products. The initial unit did not work. The replacement unit Oricom sent me did not work. Then the seller tells me they have problems with some vehicles (mine was an ex council Ford Ranger with 55,000k's). I tested heaps of different arrangements and conditions, including a side by side test with some handhelds, and with my brother's GME TX3100 plug and play (both of which performed perfectly). Despite this, the seller insisted they would not refund until Oricom had thoroughly tested both units. I needed a working unit quickly, so I bought a GME TX3100 plug an play locally, and I'm very impressed with it!! Unbelievable performance out of a physically small unit. Given what I know now, for my circumstances I really wouldn't waste my time buying one of these Oricom units, nor would I buy one over eBay. It's cost me weeks and it's still not resolved.
