  1. I got this one based on what NotaRubicon used to use in his videos for 12 volt power supply. It worked fine for me while I programed the radio with the software. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B078RZQ9WY/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  2. Sounds pretty typical for Midland.
  3. When displaying only one channel, is there a way to get rid of the radio model display. Can you add your call sign there maybe?
  4. Mine installed in my Jeep. Really liking this radio!
  5. Didn't want to mess with it and ended up returning it. Purchased this one instead. https://www.buytwowayradios.com/wouxun-kg-xs20g.html
  6. Received mine yesterday. Very nice little radio. I plugged it in to my 12 volt supply for my base unit setup and programmed my local repeaters and named them. Didn't need the software, but I can see how the software programming would be faster. I haven't been able to figure out how to save certain scan groups. I'd like to be able to just scan my saved repeaters and skip the simplex channels in scan mode.
  7. I just ordered one, so I'll give my thoughts on it once I get it rolling.
  8. Actually, I'm having trouble with it. I can't get the software to download to my laptop. When I turn it on, it only displays 2 channels.
  9. I received the AT-779UV today. Cute little radio. It will fit nicely where I had my external speaker that I don't use anymore. The Talkabout's are for the grand kids to play with. Trying to get them interested in radio while they are young.
  10. Thanks folks. This was helpful. Although it was still a bit cumbersome to navigate thru the updates as a novice to windows 10, I was able to make it work and now have the radio programed to my needs. Thanks again for the assistance!
  11. I've downloaded their programing software from the website, purchased the programming cable from them, but can't get my device manager to recognize the radio or assign a com port. Any ideas?
  12. I'm done with Midland. There are many choices out there for a better radio, so my MXT275 is for sale.
  13. I have the 275 in my jeep, and recently acquired the UV9G. Sounds like you have the 275 configured correctly. The UV9G is fairly simple to setup for repeaters, but if you have any questions about it, let me know. How old is your MXT-275?
  14. Some good, and some bad. Radio has a good, solid feel to it. Display is clear and pretty much looks like the one on my GM-30. The squelch sucks! The radio came preprogrammed with ctcss tones on every gmrs channel. Why? Also, in narrow band. So, you have to go into the menu and turn off the tone in every channel, as well as turn to wide band in every frickin channel!
