Does anyone have any opinions re the GME TX6150 5W Handheld UHF

I have looked at all the brands and it seems to be the best value for features etc

I looked at them a few days ago and they seem a very nice unit, I'm slightly biased because I have 2 x TX6000 40ch which work very well with an extended antennae communication to a repeater can achieve 100km.( good conditions) Over water more distance.
I hope 80 ch units are as good.

I am considering using one as with an aerial adapter and having the roof aerial so it doubles as a second UHF. One of the TX6000's was used this way.
They scan much faster than the Ori's of the world.

I see Uniden have a deal with more items and two batteries etc

Still prefer the GME.

I have a TX6100 5W unit which I have bought an antenna adaptor to fit the car antenna. This unit performs every bit as good as any in car radio. I am extremely happy with this unit both in car and as a handheld radio. My son and I previously bought two TX670 2W handheld units and we are very dissapointed with them. I have two Dick Smith ones which are not even 2w but out perform these. They are not at all reiable not even up close.

Cruiser,

The only experience I've had with this model is when on a station a few years ago. They used them for mustering, and they seemed to perform pretty well. I was on a grader, and could hear all the musterers clearly.

Like Ross, have only had hands-on experience with the TX6000's. We used them for mustering, albeit often with a higher gain antenna, and they always performed well. The only limitations were when one bloke/girl was in a gully, or behind a hill, and no one except the helicopter pilot could hear him/her. The 6000's are a robust unit, and can take some pretty hard falls, often suffering more damage than their user. Can only remember one or two units being sent away for repair, over a number of years.

If you can connect an external aerial to the TX6150, then they'd be a handy item to have in the vehicle,

Bob.
