TYT TH-7800: Details at

BuyTwoRadios has lots of good info on the TYT TH-7800 ($199):
"Compared to other dual band amateur mobiles such as the Wouxun KG-UV920P-A, the TYT Th-7800 appears to be a simple radio. In some ways it seems oddly reminiscent of a mobile Yaesu, and when we showed it at several local hamfests, hams who give it a first look agreed. This may be due, at least in part, to a chassis with rounded edges and the orange backlit detachable display. While it isn't outwardly flashy, there seems to be a lot of functionality packed inside.

The TH-7800 is, indeed, a dual band mobile two way radio. Like many other amateur mobiles in its class, it transmits on the 2 meter VHF (136-174MHz) and 70cm UHF (400-480MHz) bands. With 40 watts on UHF and 50 watts on VHF, the 7800 seems to have the TX on these two bands adequately covered.

Reception is a bit broader. it receives wide band AM and FM on 108-180MHz, 134-174MHz and 350-520MHz. It supports 800 memory channels (809 to be more precise, according to the manual) and allows settings to be configured independently for each individual channel."

  1. Doesn't seem overly impressive. While the $200 price tag is low compared to the big three (~$350), Wouxun (~$280, if you can find it), or Anytone (~$290), It seems high considering the quad band TYT TH-9800 is currently going for $220. For me, I'd spend the extra $20 and get the additional bands.
