After my last post to Barry asking about a dual bander just wondered has anyone got any feed back on these cheap sets from ebay. I have a puxing px888 2metre and its brilliant but fancy a dual bander now as they are really well priced.
Let us know what you think, I will be doing my research anyway but it would be good to hear from you guys.

Check this one out here

Ok on spending many hours tonight reading reviews and looking at different sets here is what I think. If we went for one of these sets for £55 delivered you mentioned on here Barry reading the reviews I'm getting mixed messages, Ive looked at lots of others with mixed reviews as well, now looking at the WOUXUN KG-UVD1P SP Ive read nothing but amazing reports with score's of 5/5 the one you showed me had reports between 2.5 and 4 pretty mixed bag. Everyone that has these WOUXUN KG-UVD1P SP cant praise them enough and I found them on ebay with the upgraded 1700mAh Battery which will hold its charge alot longer at £74 a little cheaper if you want the standard battery this one also is the new DTMF Version . Now for me I think I would rather pay the extra £19 than end up disappointed with a radio then have to sell it on at a loss only to buy the better one in the end. These radios seem to be the bees knees. My puxing radio has a fantastic review as well scoring 5/5 but the only dual bander they do is the mobile phone one which I'm not really interested in at over £120. I love that puxing radio as it feels so sturdy and strong I'm only hoping that these wouxun ones feel as good.

Here is the radio I found http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/320809744317?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649

What do you think bud pay the extra £19 or take a chance on a cheaper set. or have two puxing sets lol one vhf and the other uhf. New batteries for this and Im talking about the upgraded 1700mAh are only £10 delivered http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/B33-WOUXUN-1-7A-Battery-KG-UVD1P-KG-669-KG-699E-/220923800687?pt=UK_ConsumerElectronics_SpecialistRadioEquipment_SM&hash=item337015ac6f

Well think Ive just about talked myself into this radio now lol. Anyone had experiences with these sets let us know please.

And this video is just for educational purposes to show you that the functions/frequencies can be altered not that you would as its out of the band plan but this radio seems to have alot going for it.

Well just spoke to simonthewizard on youtube who does lots of reviews for differnt radios and antennas and asked him about these sets and seems to think the wouxun is the best for the money.

Check it out here you can see my question and his answer http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yqtbzb0BjaI

I think its a no brainer Barry
