    Probably the same radio, but I am worried different vendors may play fu*k fu*k games as the pricing can vary by $100 ish depending..
    That's a good buy. We went the eBay route because we got our radios in like 2.5-3 weeks with our guy. I checked and he's not selling on eBay. For whatever that's worth. Our radios are GTG though. But the JKArmy is where I bought my PRC-148.

    Thanks Rob, thats always a plus to know the site is legit...

    I will once I get mine post up about it, but will require some playing around with first.... Just hope JKarmy is a little quicker on the shipping than 3 weeks

    I also read comments like its a glorified baufang etc.. and that its Chinese crap etc... and that its for kids who want to play airsoft and adults who want to pretend army... and its not a good radio, and I hope I can shed a little light on it not being the case.

    The disparaging comments about the 152 and, “Muh glorified Baofeng” are from the original plastic-bodied units from circa 2009.

    man, sure wish they added DMR! :-) I want one of the 152's, but the MD-380 DMR radios are so good and cheap I can't justify more handhelds. (Though I've bought a couple of DMR mobiles lately)

    DMR is the king of activity for Digital voice for sureskis.

    Yeah outlander thats what I was thinking because I also heard them say that the TCA is the newer model, and I know the new TRI came out last year, plus there is a bunch more technical data given on sites for it...

    So I got the new TRI 152 in today, and dam... this thing is legit, reminds me of when I did 2 or 4 man recce's.
    Also now TRI released its 343 version which has the duel PTT (and single) function so I can connect the 343 to the 152... this is going to make me start playing airsoft or something idk, so much room for activities...

    Roll call.

    If any of you guys have PRC-148s or 152s, this is for you.

    I’ve been in talks with Tigertronics about potentially making a data cable for interfacing with a computer, via their SignalLink USB device. For clarification, this is NOT a programming cable, but a computer interface for programs like FLDigi, JS8Call, etc, for doing digital modes.

    If so, I’ll make a new thread for that discussion.
