Re: TWO-WAY RADIO CONSIDERATIONS FOR 4X4 DRIVERS

Hi Jorrie,

Will certainly do so tomorrow. Please shoot me an email at: info (at) repcom.co.za to bump this request.

If you are on the 4x4Community Forum, you could also obtain your licence there, typically within 24 hours. Same channels as ORRA.

Re: TWO-WAY RADIO CONSIDERATIONS FOR 4X4 DRIVERS

Ian, you're looking at ±R5k for the MD655. Pricey, yes, but still some R4k less than a remote-mount analog-only radio. This radio is a sophisticated piece of equipment and priced reasonably for what it offers. We also have portable radios capable of both Analog & Digital modes from Kirisun & Hytera,...

Re: TWO-WAY RADIO CONSIDERATIONS FOR 4X4 DRIVERS

Hi Malcolm, The Bosvark was a nice radio, however we stopped selling them a while ago because of a numbers game - the Bosvarks amounted to about 1% of out total radio sales so stocking the radio did not make economic sense in that we needed to keep a spares inventory as well. In its place, we have t...

Re: TWO-WAY RADIO CONSIDERATIONS FOR 4X4 DRIVERS

Hi Guys, I really need to buy a Patrol.... ;). I do monitor here from time to time. The PT4200 has long since been superceded by the PT3600 portable3 radio, which is a brilliant design. It is even more rugged than the PT4200 and has proven itself to be incredibly reliable. You are correct that the c...
