Not Happy Jan

Have read the hand book back to front, and have reset this many times but the squelch ( CTSS) is on all channels .
It just drives you mad................then when you turn it off, you cannot receive. Have gone to the trouble lately to even buy a matched aerial.......

Sorry to hear of your frustrations. Your radio does not sound like it is operating as it should. May we suggest you try a factory re-set using instructions Page #29 of the user guide or give our Customer Support Team a call on 02 4574 8888/ 1300 889 785 and quote your reference #HL50851. Best regards, Oricom UHF CB Radios I have tried page 29 and done that !!!!!! and it is no longer in the vehicle.

A solid unit

I have owned this radio for 6 months now, and have extensive experience with may of the big name consumer brands. the radio does everything it was meant to do,it is solidly made and feels robust. I had a minor issue with a missing part and the company bent over backwards to remedy the situation.
compact size and tidy installation, solidly constructed, full featured for its size and competitve price point.
CTSS operates on all chanels or none, group scan is not intuitive to use, the additional 200 scan only chanels are fiddly to access.

Questions & Answers

how do you save a preset channel, say 15, so that when you turn the car on, its automatically on 15 ?

Hi Trav, thanks for the message. The radio should retain the channel memory, so we suspect this could have something to do with the way the radio is wired in the vehicle. For this one, we would 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 rectifying this with you. All the best, Oricom Baby Care.

The 180f that i have just purchased has a cable and kit to make the front panel remote from the radio. There are no instructions or even references to the kit in the provided literature. On the side it has a sticker that says "if this seal is broken, warranty is void" Can you please explain why the kit is included or how it is to be fitted?

The sticker you refer to is a security/ warranty sticker, if broken it voids the warranty. The remote head can be fitted in tight places and the main unit for example under the driver set. You can find a PDF manual on the internet. You should have 2 fitting kits ....one for the remote head with the cable and mike and the other for the main body.This answer takes me no further the pdf shows nothing other than a picture, i am waiting on a response from ORICOM via the retail out let where i purchased the radio. One other point of interest, trying to register the radio on the Oricom sight, the serial number is recognised as a uhf180 model not the uhf180f as listed on the box and on the serial number sticker.Good Morning Trev, Thanks for your message. We can email you the instructions on how to fit the remote head kit on your UHF180F, please send us your email address to marketing@oricom.com.au. Rest assured this will not void your warranty if you choose to add the remote head kit on this model. Please scroll down on our warranty page on our website and you will find the UHF180F. If you have any problems please give our support team a call on 1300 889 785 Oricom UHF CB.
