    "Channels" are for different talkgroups even thought you may be using only one repeater frequency in your location. Then multiply that by different cities.... you need lots of channels.

    I was also surprised about the lack of channels, but unfortunately all sources confirm it. The Wouxun is announced to cost 189€ here in Germany. They definitely won't be successful with this radio!

    By the way, W5JCK, with all respect I don't see the need to program each repeater with all talkgroups, that's simply senseless.
    Most of the DMR radios have great opportunities to program each repeater only one time (means with slot 1 and 2) and choosing the talkgroups with either the keypad or via contacts.
    Even the reflectors can be activated that way easily!
    If you program your codeplug the way you mentioned it you'll end up in a not manageable radio, in my opinion.
    When you travel from time to time you don't want to search in dozens of zones for the right repeater beside the fact, that the radios still have channel amount limitations. We already have much more then 1000 repeaters in the World. Don't you agree that it easier to push a button on the keypad rather than turning the channel selector knob endless times and additionally changing zone to get to the right repeater just because you need to talk on a different talkgroup?

    a very cheap radio (both ONLY in uhf band) are the Retevis Rt3 or the Tytera MD-380 (are the same radio !)

    so the Wouxon D901 is not even close to the older TYT MD-380 in capability. Good to know.

    But you'll get what you pay for!
    A cheap radio, very bad quality and you probably gonna buy a real radio sooner or later. That means, when you buy cheap you'll pay two times. Better go for a quality radio right away, Hytera, Motorola or Kenwood (TKD300) before throwing your €'s in the forest.
