Price on NEW ht750?

Postby motorolamaniac » Sat Jan 21, 2006 11:46 pm

just recently ran across a new HT750 for $400 w/ batt, ant and charger in box never used or programmed. it is VHF 16 channel. was wondering if this is a good price. i have read so many bad things about the waris series thought i would see what anyone else thought about price and if it was worth it.

Thanks, Jeff

What radios do you own?: X9000 thru APX

Sounds about right for used.

The only thing to watch for (sorta) is the firmware revision. The real early HT's with ver 1 & 2 firmware are buggy. I think current is 6.x. Firmware on these should be upgradable at your local MSS without too much of a problem or cost. Other than that, I actually like the little guy now (I have the lowband version).

For the $$$, you can most likely pick up a display model on ebay for just a couple of $$ more. I picked up a NIB 1250 full keypad for $600.

We just bought 9 HT 750s last week, in the Intrinsically Safe flavor, for approx. $650 each, if that helps any?
