Hi all,

Just looking for some suggestions on brands and models
of UHF radio I should buy. I dont venture too far off the
tar and only really want it for added security.

thanks

Macca,
I have a GME TX3400, no problems with this one, good if you have limited dash space, also not as easy to steal from the vehicle seeing as it's in two locations if this is a problem. Not the cheapest UHF radio you can buy, depends how much you have to spend.Keep the shiny side up

Macca, I've the Tx3400 as well. Its a beauty. Not only is the control head separable, depending on how you mount it, the whole thing (both bits) can easily be removed when not required and reinstalled (lterally in minutes) ready for the next trip.

I bought mine (in very good condition) for $300 on eBay and got 3 aerials with it!Be good, or be quick.

Bonz, I got mine done at G&C Communications on Cranbourne.
Telstat in Seaford will do it too. $15 or was last time I asked.

You can have ANY frequency programmed in. They do it from the Mic plug.

Agree with all so far, I too have a TX 3400, and am very happy with th performance (sold off my UH100)

All of our work mobiles are TX3200, these are equally impressive without all the bells and whistles.

I have the TX3400 as well great radio, also have extra channles programmed in eg local ses and boys in blue
Only thing is you cannot program them in yourself unlike the latest model but its disadvantage is that it is a lot bigger.

Thanks so much to everyone out there for your replies and input.
GME TX3400 it is. Ordered one online this afternoon.

Truckster,
The software to program the radio yourself would no doubt be available on Kazaa. I will take a look around and get back to you. I asked a electronics wiz mate of mine who suggested I take a look at kazaa. He said the software is easy to get hold of.

Thanks again all. This site is the best for fast reliable info

I know I'm too late, and the 3400 is very good, but I got the 4400 - cost less than 3400 and fits directly into my Prado dash below the cassette/radio. Has 20 additional cop channels (20) that I could do myself. You'll always be satisfied with a GME product. If you're in Melbourne, I still have the frequency list, but the sellers will usually program them in for you. Cheers.Russell S

Thanks Russell,

I looked hard at the 4400 but the remote head unit of the 3400 sold me.
