"If every Ham in the world (or at least the USA) took the time to monitor and make calls on simplex, there would be a more universal feel to the VHF allocation rather than tiny little cells and haunts or local repeater groups."Via K0NR

Russell (@nitro1963) passed along the following via Twitter about the TH-9000D:
@brickolore when u put in repeater inputs eg 477.350 then change power level the input changers to 483.350
@brickolore some will not clone . Audio recieve level is lower. If your only going to use the radio on simplex it may be ok for some people
@brickolore after you programe repeater channels in they should not change after programming input 433.625 output 438.625 eg
@brickolore many people having problems with the D model tyt th9000D
@brickolore iv programmed many tyt th 9000 never had a problem until the D model came out
@brickolore they have changed the wiring on the mic from the 9000 to the 9000D not compatable nowAny other readers having problems?
