Hi Johar

The DM Motorola GP338 is definitely a fake. Thanks for clarifying to everybody. :thanks:
A quick search on the net shows you can hardly find a genuine version for less than 200USD anywhere.

Now for 250 AED it seems to work fine so far. Let's see in couple of years how it survives our DO drives :D

Additional feedback on the Chinese "made in Malaysia" Motorola, especially regarding the after sales.... :-?

During last DO drive I noticed that the quality of the speaker was getting poor. I firstly thought it was linked to the distance with our marshal during the drive. But, back home I made few checks and there was definitely a problem.

It is not that you could not hear anything, but the sound was not the quality I expected.

I went back to Dragon Mart tonight, wondering how they would consider it. The shop changed it to a new one without a question. :D

Good to see they treat DO members well :)

I purchased a Motorola MT-777 from Dragon Mart.
Can someone please help me with setting the sending and receiving frequencies.
There are always 6 numbers: xxx.xxx
Is the Sending frequency always the same as the receiving frequency?
Thank you in advance for the help

Hi Desiree,

Welcome to DO. You can find a great tutorial made by Sasha here:

viewtopic.php?f=16&t=3190&p=40388&hilit=sash#p39851

The sending and receiving frequencies must be the same. Also, you need to change the setup to ensure you get 7 numbers: xxx.xxxx

The setup change is option number 20 in the menu....set it for 12.5 and this should get you the 7 numbers. Any questions just let me know.

Good luck and see you on the sand!

Hello @Waleed4x4

Found this online, give it a try:
"
For those who have the Crony CY - 888 two way radio....please see below channel programming process. If anyone has found a better way of doing it, please let us know as well.

Crony CY 888 channel programming

Enter the frequency for channel 1 physically as 464.562. The 5 will come automatically per the program inside.

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.

For Channel 2 and subsequent channels

Now press F. You will see the frequency displayed as 462.562 5. Press A and keep pressing till you come to 462.587 5.

Press F and you will see channel 01 on the top which is the earlier stored channel. Press A to select channel 2 and press F # D for storing this frequency as launch frequency and repeat above for receive frequency. In this way you can store all the channels upto 22. "

Check if it helps.
Cheers
Sam

@samonajj these steps are same as I did for my Crony radio :) . Just like to add 1 more step before starting this is to change the frequency step size from 25Hz to 12.5Hz. If I'm not wrong it can be done by pressing F then no. 4 this will show the current frequency step size. Then press no. 4 again 1-2 times to set 12.5 Hz. Then follow the steps to save the channels.
Cheers.
