MURS has been in use in other countries for a little while now, but I don't know if China will be re-vamping the radios to work with it. Hopefully they do.

I"ll read up on it some more and try to answer you question.

Yes, your sordins will work with your puxing.
Yes, they will work with your repro PTT.

The PTT MAY need to be re-wired, but that is a simple job, if you are thinking about getting a real PTT and have the cash to spare, do it, its so worth it.
Your sordins will need to have the mic replaced, this is easily and quickly done by SRS Tactical in Alberta. Shoot an email to Steve and he can set you up in no time, A++++ Service.

I would suggest shipping him your radio and PTT as well so he can test it on YOUR system.

Thank you for this most excellent write-up, for now I am stuck with my Motorola T5700s. And I will vouch for what you pay is what you get, I was fooling around with my eBay $16 throat mic that I received today and was sounding like the adults in a Charlie Brown cartoon.

Great, thanks Cobra.
The wavelength thing isn't a big deal. I'll sit down and research it myself when I have time. It's just got me curious.

It's just usually easier for someone to direct you to some information, if you know nothing about the field you're trying to research. Otherwise, you won't know what to search for, or know if you're reading the correct thing.q

Got myself some SABERs here. Saber R, Saber I and a SABER III.

Wondering if any of you radio guys knew a good place to get accessories like batteries, antennas and the like?

I might have a way to program these shortly, so I'd love to start using them more.

If you cant get the parts OEM, go to Ebay.

There are a few places in ON that will have whatever antenna you want.

So I have a puxing 888D...

I also have a pair of Ztactical repro comtacs. What type of a PTT will I need to purchase to make it work? I have no idea what the connecter on my comtacs is, but its just a stubby 2cm long pin with three black rings...and I think the 888D is a Kenwood two pin? Or is it a Motorola 2 pin?

Or should I just chuck those headsets and buy another pair?

If anyone could recommend a headset AND push to talk that would work with the 888D without also having to buy extra plugs and adapters and such that would be great, Id like to spend less then 400 bucks of course for this....so if anyone knows good repros that would be great.

The connector you have is called a TP-120, it is one of the more common 'nato' plugs.

For compatibility's sake just get the Z TAC TP-120 to Kenwood 2pin PTT. Its china, no 2 companies are going to have the PTTs and headsets wired the same because they don't follow standards.

Re-wireing the PTT was only for using a REAL headset.

Is there a PTT that is able to run two radios at the same time? One using a Kenwood connector, and the other a single pin Motorola?

There are such PTTs, Emerson and Ztac make them (repro).
I am unsure on how well they function compared to RS dual monitoring systems.
Unless the people on the radios have VERY distinctive voices, or VERY good voice protocol good luck ever telling the 2 nets apart.

You could grab dual comm sordins, and run two seperate PTts, and then each radio will play in each ear, so you can tell then apart :-)

Yes, of course that is the preferred meathod, but $$$$$$ :P

Most people on here are not willing to drop that kinda cash on guns let alone comms lol.

The ZTac dual comm PTT works very well (here is a review of the Z118 Z4Ops. I've used one with two Px-888s with no troubles. I did find that the ZTac unit works best without a battery inserted. All the battery gives you is volume control via the PTT, but it also adds a lot of noise to the signal. Hence I've always used the thing in unpowered mode.

A friend sent his ZTac dual comm PTT to SRS Tactical and had it re-wired to work with real single comm Sordins. He has reported that this setup works very well with his dual Px-888s.

Amazing, valuable information! Thank you very much!
I am looking to buy Puxing PX-888K from the link you have provided, and I see three identical radios:
PX-888K-G-SP+4-001K
PX-888K-B+4-001K
PX-888K-G+4-001K

The difference between the first one and second and third (besides color) is only the weight. The price is the same. I am trying to find what SP is and can't. Can anybody knowledgeable please explain? I don't want to buy a wrong one.
