Puxing 777

Post by daxi on Sun Nov 04, 2007 9:27 am

Anyone else using one of these ?
On a recent outing to a local seaside town I took both my VX-7R complete with 30 so called high gain antenna & my Puxing as we intended climbing the 200 foot tall church tower.
I tried for the local repeater on the VX-7R thinking this would give me the best chance & got straight in. A friend having lunch about 10 - 15 miles away said I was a good 5 & 3 on the input. Saying I had very little signal but great audio & asked if I could try the Puxing. The Puxing gave exactly the same signal & it cost less than the @@@@ing antenna on the VX-7R Embarassed Embarassed Plus the Puxing had a silent CTCSS.
If these radio have it problem it's that they are of little use as a marine band radio, due to a full reflection IF induced signal on 156.000.
But as a great 2 meter radio that you can simply use as a PMR etc scanner I would recommend this cheap little radio highly.

I must admit I find the users manual no problem at all. The radio is VERY simple to use, but if you find some aspects of the Puxing's manual difficult to follow it has been translated from Chinese English in to understandable English by an American !!!!!

Self Programming.

This is achieved by holding in the Moni & Menu button WHILST TURNING THE RIG ON. Not by holding them in for two seconds as per the manual.
Having held those buttons in as you turned the Puxing on you will see SELF.
At each stage the next stage is reached pressing enter & at each stage you will see a number on the right hand side of the Screen.

At number 1. You will now see a CH & a number you may alter this to any channel simply by using the channel selector knob on top of the rig. Press enter to select.
At number 2 you enter the RECIEVE frequency you require either by direct entry or via channel selector.
At number 3 It's receive codes CTCSS, off or DO23N you change this by using the *Lock button & the CTCSS code is selected by the channel selector knob on top of the rig. For most amateur use this will need to be set to off. (NOTE the Puxing does not say CTCSS it simply shows a CTCSS code you then alter this if reqired.)
At number 4 you set the transmitting frequency. Again by direct entry or via the channel selector knob.
At 5 you choose the TX CTCSS tone if required. Using the *Lock button to find a CTCSS code & then the channel selector knob to find the exact code. (NOTE the Puxing does not show CTCSS it shows a CTCSS code you then alter this to the code required.)
At 6 for amateur bands you set off
at 7 you can set a priority channel. the options are either either add or delete.
At 8 you set the power H = High 5 watts . L = ??
At 9 for the amateur bands you need to see wide. Selected by the channel selector knob.
at 10 you can set a channel name this is done using the channel selector knob to work through numbers & letters & the #T-R button to change to the next letter number position.


Hope that helps.
If you want to lock the Puxing into channel only mode then hold in the Enter button as you turn the rig on.
