G'day all,
(my apologies if this has been discussed before.. checked archives, couldn't find anything on this specific subject..)
I'm "in the market" for a UHF radio, Checking Olbis' site I see they have the above unit (Uniden UH-090) "on special" @ $419... Is this a "good price"?
Anyone here using one of these? (seems to me like a good idea, if it works)..
All opinions (for & against) welcome.. TIA
Regards, Ed. C.

G'Day Ed,
I have the duel frequency set you mention and have had no problems with it at all. It seems to work very well on either band. It would have been a better idea if Uniden have designed this model with a remote head .. but that life. If you have a need for duel UHF & 27meg, as I do, this is the way to go as you only need to find a mounting location for one one set. That's a good price, I payed $439 for mine 6 months ago.

What happens when one part dies? EG 27meg or the UHF?

You either throw it away, or buy a second unit anyway..

Also you cant 'use' both at once..

http://www.prestigecom.net.au/ has it for $399... $8 overnight anywhere in aussie...

I wouldnt own another uniden after the last POS one..

Hi. My understanding is that this unit is 27mhz AM ONLY. I would have thought that any DISTANCE 27mhz would be on side band (USB or LSB). AM only is probably OKk car-to-car, but that's better done on UHF CBRS. anyway Personally I would be buying a UHF set and a 27mhz AM/SSB set separately, if I felt the need for 27mhz. See also I reply I put up a couple of weks ago about the GME TX 3600 (search for TX3600 or TX 3600 or 3600) , the commercial version of the TX 3400 remote head radio. A few $ more but may be worth it to you.

Giday Ed,
I use one of those radios in my work truck, it works a treat. I dont like it only because when dual watching (you can set it to watch say 8 on 27meg and 40 UHF) it only beeps when someone talks on the secondary channel.
(unless Im not using it properly)
But as far as other features go it does lots of things, group scan and open scan on both modes (fully programable) with a programable 'instant' channel on both modes as well.
All the usual cell call stuff.
A mute for the uhf that actualy works.

If you want (or need) both radios and dont have much room they are a good option. (and make sure you plug the right antenna into the right socket)
