Crony is the best, using 2 of them for about 4 years.
Just recently replaced old batteries with Li-Ion (2200 mA) which hold 10 times more than regular. (50 aed each).

Crony CY 888 channel programming guide.

Someone asked for this last weekend so here it is.

Enter the frequency for channel 1 physically as 462.562 The 5 will come automatically per the program inside.

Then press Funtion "F" and press "#" for storing and then select channel "01" using "A" for up and "B" for down. and then press "D" for storing launch frequency (speak).

Then press F and press # and then press "C" for storing receive frequency (hear). The channels for speak and hear are they same for off-road purpose. Channel 1 is now set.

To confirm Press F and press 1. You will see CH - 01 on the screen.

Press F and 1 again. You will now see the frequency 462.562 5 and 01 on the screen.

Repeat For Channel 2 and subsequent channels up to 14.

1---------------- 462.5625
2---------------- 462.5875
3---------------- 462.6125
4---------------- 462.6375

Dear Abdulla, welcome to DO, looking forward to meet you on the sand.
Please make sure to program all above listed frequencies into your radio as the marshals can decide to use any frequency on the drives, hence it is important to have stored them all.
Cheers,
Gabor

Hi [mention]Ahhelmi[/mention],

Are you sure you set both sending and receiving frequencies? Also which brand of radio do you have? If its a Crony check out this post by SamA.

Hello Sami,
Thanks for the reply i have a motorola it so the above doesnt apply.
But what u mean set sending and reciving frequencies?
You mean after going to self stiing then entering the frquency number 2 times when programing channel 1 for example ?

See this link: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=1454&start=30#p42899

I was there in January 2017 and bought the Motorola MT -777. Got it for 175 had to pay 10 DH extra for the car charger. He did the programming with is computer and 5 minutes later I had the radio.

If you have problems with programming go to this shop he will do it.
