Hi Kumar,
Thank you for the response, I'm a little relieved now. Keeping fingers crossed.
Cheers!!!

Ive had the Kengda unit since January, and its been a tank so far.
Battery life is amazing and I charge only once a month out of habit, not coz the bars fell below 2/3. Most people are amazed at how long the battery actually lasts.
The range on this unit is great and I’ve never had any issues so far. Absolutely love this model.

Now, as far as online support/reference material, there is none— I did the same searches as you when I got the unit and hit a brick wall.

I firmly believe that as long as the unit helps in communicating with the convoy, holds charge like a boss and feel as sturdy as it does, you haven’t made the wrong choice.

Hi all.
I just bought a Motorola MT-777
I've programed all the frequencies but for channels 5, 8 and 12 instead of showing "5"as the small digit to the right of the programmable frequency it shows "25"

EG for channel 1 it shows 462.562 with a small "5"to the right
for channel 5 is shows 462.662 with a small "25"to the right

Is this something to worry about?

Just wanted to recommend a supplier of radios (and all sorts of other goodies!)
The best bit is they deliver anywhere in the UAE so no trip to the dreaded DMart required...

Visit: https://edragonmall.com/
or call / whatsapp Irfan on 055 984 9691

I ordered a radio from them two years ago (a Crony 888) and it's still going strong. The chap is very helpful and the site carries Crony, Baofeng and other brands.

I'm in no way affiliated to the shop but it's always nice to pass on a really useful contact!
(Just bought a tripod light for camping from the site most recently)

Sure Pav, its working nice, however channel frequency was not set as per our norms which later manually I adjusted.
