I am looking to buy a GME TX3400 or TX3200 to install in a GU patrol. Is this a good radio/brand and can anybody recommend a retailer of them in Sydney? Thanks.

This is a very good radio. I now own 4 GMEs, one is 4 years old, and haven't had any problems as I had with another brand previously. I can't recommend anyone in Sydney, as I have no experience there, but if you get stuck you could try mail order from Kyle Comms in Brisbane.

Hey, When you find a good supplier tell them to list there business in our 4WD Business Search Engine - It is free and will not only help them as a business but will help all ExplorOz users.BTW: How about everyone tell you local businesses to get listed - No cost, no contract, easy pesie no spam, no junk just good business sense.....David

GME UHF's are excellent, i've got a TX 472s that i have had since 1992, i bought it second hand & it hasn't missed a beat, Try GME Electraphone in Gladesville, there number is (02) 9844 6666 or go to there web site at www.gme.net.au by the way i have no affiliation with GME, i just like their products, cheers, Dave.

Dave, We like their products too, have about 10 of varying models, and ages, plus handhelds. They perform well, and rarely need repairs. They might be dearer, but it's worth it. Australian made and designed too. Do have a relic here, a TX470, bought in 1982, has duplex, but none of the modern "stuff", must be nearly twice the size of the latest TX4400. See ya..

Try Andrews Communications at Greystanes. They are in the phone book and on the web. They have the lot, new and second-hand and are very competitive. No, I have no connection with them either! Cheers, Phil

Alternatively, you could try Prestige Comms in Perth, a top mail-order mob for either GME or Uniden (along with other brands).

Check out their website (with prices shown!) at www.prestigecom.net.au

You can try Whitworths Marine and Leisure www.whitworths.com.au

they seem to have reasonably priced GME gear. (at least last time I checked they did). They have a few stores around Sydney.

You will probably have to fit tx3400 as a friend just went through the process and found no where to fit the 3200. THe remote head of 4300 fits nicely just below radio. Also Probably best to fit a ground independant aerial.

The TX 3200 actually does fit quite nicely. I have mine fitted to the panel below the radio, behind the gearstick (The GU ST doesn't have the DIN sized void just below the radio).

I made up a spacer from MDF, 32mm thick, to alow for the curve in the panel. With the speaker facing out into the cabin, the radio looks like it's part of the original interior.
