    Cool Bad quality of Chinese Mobile radio? Try again with Zastone D9000

    I bought a D9000 before several months ago. Emmm... It is not bad. It is good at VHF and UHF transmit. And the voice is nice. But the only thing made me feel upset that the screen was shacking all the time. So I canít see anything. It is not a good experience. Disappointed.

    And couple months, the Zastone seller told me that they made some update. And this time will be different. Ok. My heart is catch again. So I try to believe they one more time. And done.

    I did some test and open it to show you as below:

    1.Changing the 6-connector socket to the 8 -connector socket and realizing the APRS function. (APRS is only done in hardware, but it is ok. I can wait for software update of this feature.)


    2.Optimizing the VHF parameters on the main board. (ok, now I can receive VHF from one side and put UHF out from the other side.)

    3.Aging tests of the LCD plate in high and low temperature(Not bad, better than before. And the screen is work well.)

    For another part, l will write down in the future.

    Also more questions, you can post to me at below.

    I think you are saying that the D9000 has been modified to solve a few issues and that the radio has many improvements. I didn't know the old ones were troublesome?

    Default Zastone D9000 help

    Hello,

    I am a new Ham and I purchased a Zastone D9000 from a friend. For the most part I am enjoying this radio but I know that it is not ideal. I want to use it as a repeater and I am having some trouble trying to get it set up. The reason I want to do this is because I am not always around the house and I am out somewhere else on the property. (I use this mobile in my house) I want to be able use my handheld to transmit and receive through the D9000. Is there some place I can get some better info on how to do this other than the owners manual.

    Thanks,
    Bill

    Does this radio have crossband releater capability?

    A few months ago, my Baofeng UV-5R fell out of the side pocket of my backpack, which I use for work. I never noticed. It wasn't until I went out to the postbox about five hours later that I saw it embedded in the snow and ice - with tyre tracks running right over it. It was about -20C at the time. The LCD screen is now u/s, but it still works. I rarely use any other channel than S20 or the local repeater, both of which are saved as the default frequncies for VFO A and B.
    I won't be binning it anytime soon
