Default Alinco 222/900 MHz HT Update

Looks good from what I can see. 222 and 900 in one radio. Get more activity on those bands!

I'm picking one of these up at HRO tomorrow btw in Sunnyvale (they just got them in for people who preordered - i dont know fi they have them generally available).

Anyway the Alinco site says 2.5W on high on 902, 5W on 220

DJ-G29 Detail information

I'm thinking thats a *little* light, depending on the antenna (but many motorola commercial radios do 2.5W too, so its not out of the range of possibility).

Anyway we have a lot of 900 machines in the Bay Area so i'll be trying it out...

got mine yesterday at PHX HRO. Great little radio. Works fine on all our local repeaters. The unit is only 2.5w when on external DC power. It's 1.7w with the LiIon battery on 33cm. The display is killer. Better than my VX-8DR.

Cool! Thanks for the first impressions. I have been anxiously waiting for this to come out. Now that we are starting to get some good, real-world feedback, I feel better about buying one. What was the sticker price on yours?

Default Programing Software

I do not see any programing software on the accessories list on the Universal web site.

Does it come with the cable?

Can anyone shed any light on that subject?

The manual says the software is for download on their website for free. I haven't looked for it yet.

Default Antenna connector

I like the screen prints of the radio.
So what's the antenna connector on top?
If I bought one, I would need to run an external antenna to make the machines here in Detroit.

According to Universal, the antenna is an SMA. Wyandotte, when you're looking at 2.5 watts for 900 MHz, I would say you might need at least something by a window...but your mileage might vary.There are two machines near Detroit, one being in Pontiac.
