No, and it doesn't matter. The frequencies programmed in most Chinese radios at the factory for testing purposes are often used by public safety agencies in the USA, and if you use them, you run a good chance of ending up in jail and on the news for interfering with a police radio system. Don't be that guy, learn how to program the radios yourself, and make sure you are using legal frequencies.

and this is why I obtained my ETA certification as an RF Interference Mitigation Technician, these Chinese contraband radios are creating job security.

Seriously, this is why professional radios should never be sold to consumers who have zero idea what they are using and the risk that unauthorized operation can pose to licensed and legitimate users of radio spectrum.
NO I will not help program your trunking radio. All opinions are exclusively those of the author and in no way reflect the position of his employer, contractors or other parties.

Default Did you ever figure out the answer?

Did you ever figure out the answer as to what frequencies are programmed by default from the Chinese factory for testing purposes?

It varies by manufacturer, model, and batch. And you can't use them anyway.
