B-Tech 50X1 vs QYT KT-980 plus from Nat. net convo



From the conversation after national net tonight (8/2/20 around 22:00 EST) around BTech 50X1 vs QYT KT-980 Plus. Based on one account these radios are essentially the same, but the QYT has different software and will tune to VHF @ 75W and UHF @ 55W (which will include GMRS) and is a few dollars cheaper.


If anyone is looking into a QYT KT-980 Plus, I found one on amazon.




I am definitely considering this unit as I will eventually merge into HAM as well. While it seems like a somewhat limited HAM machine it will surely get me started at least in VHF/UHF. That is, before i jump into something much more capable and, of course, much more expensive as well. :)


If anyone would like to share additional information, I (and I'm sure many others) would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance!

Who cares, they are both mediocre radios at best. And for the money you sink in any of those two, you can easily buy a much better performing used LMR radio, from Motorola, Kenwood, Icom... and yes, there are part 95 LMR radios too.... but I wouldn't harp much on that "legality" as its been stated that it won't be a problem to run Part 90 gear on GMRS.
