these are a good reliable reliable UHF set and no they dont have extra channels
If you need extra channels get a commercial UHF set which can be reprogrammed to listen to police and the like. You should be able to get one for around the same price and the commercial ones can be programmed for much higher output watts or programmed for 5 watts output as per the current regulations. Richard

Toonfish,

Have been using TX4000's since they came out, have only sent one or two away for service in over 10 (?) years. As above they are a good reliable UHF.

TX4200 are better again, with few more practical features. We found them to give an extra 10 kms range on receive, while on simplex. The priority channel feature is good too.

Have one TX4400, on a grader, and it works okay, but the extra 20 channels are useless out here, the coppers don't even come out this far!!

I'd see if you can score a 4200. As for price, wouldn't have a clue, but you wouldn't want to pay more than $200 for a TX4000, if that. Hooroo...

Hi Toonfish,
I have a TX4400
these have the 20 extra user-programmable channels
its been a good unit so far.

If you buy a 2nd hand TX4400, note the models which are user programmable only came into existence only after serial number 10803340, in other words, sets made before that did not have this feature.

Go to the GME electrophone site
http://www.gme.net.au/land/tx4400_main.html
and you will see it there.

Happy Hunting
