    Juentai JT-6188 Dual Band VHF/UHF

    Any body have any experience with one of these? I'm looking to put something inexpensive in a trail rig and have been looking at the rugged radios RM-25R the radios look identical but I'm not savvy enough to tell the difference

    I've never seen that particular radio, but after a quick google, and here's my opinion. First off I have no love for Chinese radios. There's several programing quirks with most of them among other things. The one thing that stood out is that this radio is 25/20 watts. Fine for around town or up on Peavine, but out in the hills and valleys you may find that won't make the trip. Don't forget in Northern Nevada with the trees we have to mount our antenna's in less than perfect places to keep from breaking them off. The center of the roof may work best for the antenna, but it becomes useless if a tree removes it. Yes, the next choice is almost double the price, Icom and Yaesu both have radios starting at $150.00, but I feel its well worth the money. A good radio lasts almost forever. Spend wisely.

    Your in Jeff's WNCC class arn't you? I'll see you at the last class when you take your test. Good luck.
    Its just a road with a few rocks, keep driving!

    More money will be less over the long haul. Get a good radio up front.
    It's not the problem, it's the solution, that counts.

    I was just looking for something mounted in my jeep for group runs as I usually forget my handhelds. The footprint is what I was interested in I do not like the real estate that most radios I have seen take up.

    If footprint is a concern, there are several radios that you can remote mount the face. I have the main brain mounted under the seat and the face above the rear view mirror. Makes for a clean install.

    That's what I've done as well. One of them I even used velcro to mount the faceplate so I could hide it when it wasn't needed.

    Hit Hamstudy.org. next test is March 17.

    I also mounted my radio under the seat with only the control head exposed. I think my radio came with a 10' cable from body to head.That gives you a lot of options.
