Graham (5thElement) tries out the new Intek MT-5050 PMR handheld. The MT-5050 is a professional looking radio aimed at the professional radio user but without the higher price tags associated with some brand names. Graham soon discovers that there is more to this handheld than meets the eye!
The Intek MT-5050 is an 8 channel PMR446 radio which also includes 69 LPD channels.
The radio can also be modified which will be covered in more detail later in this review.

While testing out the Puxing PX777plus handhelds, the following weekend I decide to bring down my Tevion Action 850′s that I own to my Girlfriend’s place over the weekend out of random curiosity. I had an aim to solve a communication problem.

Mark, Pantenneman looks into the possibility of using Chinese PMR Handhelds for a UHF CB style service.
As noted in previous reviews, the availability of Chinese imported handsets is alarmingly easy in the age of online buying from the likes of eBay. Normally, these handsets are bought for the use of a cheap handheld rig to use on the 2m / 70cm amateur radio bands, in comparison to the likes of the Yaesu FT-60, Kenwood TH-F71E and the like. And as noted before, they are alarmingly good value for money in the likes of the Puxing PX777 Plus reviewed here. Please note that this review is not of an overly scientific or technical basis, they were tested in real life conditions and not in some library with a bunch of computers and alleged theory.

Another month goes by and another PMR-446 handheld is released. One dull and boring afternoon Adam from 121radio.co.uk popped up on MSN Messenger to ask if I was interested in reviewing a new professional line 446 radio called the TTi TX-1446 . Of course I was interested! After seeing a hyperlink to the product information page I could understand why this new radio was so highly anticipated by those who had already seen it!

When Adam at 121radio.co.uk contacted me with an offer of an XTL446 for review on Transmission1, I really couldn’t resist. For those who don’t yet know, the Motorola T6222 is now out of production and its successor is the XTL446. Almost 3 years ago I wrote the review of the T6222 and as our regular readers know, this is the reference set that all other 446 units are judged by. So, does the XTL cut it against its older brother? Read on and find out.
