Great customer service

After purchase in NZ, there was a technical issue and after immediate contact with customer service in Australia, and talk through of possible problems and fixes, it was decided to replace product. They contacted supplier here in NZ and all within 2 hours I picked up replacement product . Never have I had such prompt and efficient customer service. A great testament to Oricom and their product and staff. Show reply

Low volume

Hello I have to uhf2500. Even in highest volume they are very quiet. You need to have it right up to your ear to hear. I sent it back thinking it was an issue but they confirmed it was fine. Pretty disappointing!! Show details

Good deal

This product performance is good, off course the range 13 k is in open spaces not with obstacles, in cities or towns is less than 2 k
The size is big not comfortable
The design is like a toy not that elegant
Charging is not too bad but not fast Show details ·  1

very close

would have given it 5 by 5 if it had an fm radio.....scan could be simplified with a designated key....led light operating independently without turning unit on, is an excellent feature...mostly use this transceiver as a flashlight.....have successfully made contact with a repeater 85 kms away, which is impressive....operating on AA batteries, floating & price, makes this transceiver a great choice for an emergency scenario...well done oricom Show details ·  1

Haven’t tried them yet

Since we got the UHF2500 we have not operated them yet, try to figure out how to use them as they have so many features. Hope we will work it out before we travel Show details ·  1

Brilliant handheld UHF

Bought this for 4WD recovery and similar communication with my Oricom UHF360 in car unit.
My 4 year old son dropped our UHF2500 the first day we got it. Let him try it and when he asked me to pick him up for a cuddle he dropped it onto the garage floor from my head height.
I thought it had cracked the case or screen, which would have been no surprise, but when I examined it there wasn't a mark on it. Unbelievably tough.
Works well with lots of useful features and it does feel more solid and a little larger than I expected, not a little toy, which I was very happy about. A very well made, tough unit.
My son loves it too.
Excellent value on sale for $69 on the Oricom website. Show details ·  1

Disappointed in range and clarity

On highway and driving around flat sparsely vegetated country in SWQLD - very underwhelmed. Doubt ever had communications over 1km. Often struggled less than 500m while stating up to 10km - misleading. Show details

Good as expected

It's a better alternative than other available uhf waterproof radios.

One handheld was a little soft in voice (microphone). But Oricom warranty is excellent. They've shipped me new set of handheld after I've complained.

I wish the size (and weight) could be smaller/lighter. With today's high capacity rechargeables, it may well be use smaller AAA batteries instead.

Also, I was expecting squelch tail suppression would just work across Oricom radios offerings. Unfortunately, does not work that way. You would get that annoying squelch tail noise when paired with fixed radio such as Oricom DTX4200. Show details ·  1

Great for spotting while 4wding

I use my origin handheld mainly for spotting while off-road and have dropped it many times in dirt, mud and on rocks and it’s still working beautifully. Super durable and works great. Definitely recommend to a 4wd enthusiast Show details ·  1

Excellent !!!

Used whilst driving. Very good reception. Good battery back up as well. It is useful that it is waterproof. There is no similar product in the market with same features at the same price point. Was purchased on the oricom website. Delivery was super fast as well. Happy customer, can recommend to interested in purchasing. Show details ·  1

Perfect Radio

The radio is perfect for our before and after school care. After reading the instructions to avoid truckies the radio has good range long battery.

Highly recommend this product and not to mention great customer service and fast delivery. Show details ·  1
