Uniden UHF radios

Hi All,
Just an FYI.

Did you know that the Range Extender (Duplex) Capability: Allows the Uniden to operate via a local repeater station, if available, which re-transmits your signal over a wider area.

Well here is the list of repeater locations, which you might find handy.

Yep good advice the UH-041 twin pack with charger for under $200 (well under if you shop around) are 1W jobbies and perform much better than the 0.5W Uniden baby sets, in both range and battery life. The package includes NIMH rechargables for both radios.

The other feature is the selective calling which allows you to only hear your friends, colleagus workmates etc and not the rest of the rejects that frequent CB. It wont give you a free channel but it will stop you having to listen to the retards.

As for the repeaters remember 1W or less and a tiny antenna is a puny signal with a range of 4km or less so you'd have to be close to the repeaters to hope to get a signal out, and every retard and truck driver will swamp you with carriers at will.

Despite this the Uniden UH-041 is excellent value and really the first step above the toys.

Re: Uniden UHF radios

I have been thinking about getting the UH-041P which are the ones you are talking about for about $190 from Dick Smiths, but I have just seen a new model, the UH-039P for $120. Same deal as the 041, but is a 0.7W not a 1W, still better then the 0.5W(UH-036) ones and cheaper then the UH-041P.

Thay are now selling the UH-041P with 2 VOX headsets for $197

Doesn't the UH-039P use 3 cells where the UH041P uses 4. Battery life, the UH-041Ps use 4.
