very close

published

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

Haven’t tried them yet

published

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

Brilliant handheld UHF

published

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.

Purchased in at Oricom website for $69.

Disappointed in range and clarity

published

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.

Good as expected

published

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.

Purchased in at Supercheap Auto for $150.

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

Wondering how suitable this model is for kids? It seems a bit large and heavy and maybe tricky to use?
Keen to set it to a sub channel and maybe DCS advanced digital code to prevent them from picking up other channels.

I like that it is waterproof and more powerful over for example the Uniden UH45 which seems to be designed with kids in mind.

My kids are 5 and 8.

Keen to hear some thoughts, or better even experiences.

Thanks
