    Good value for money, poor user interface and RFI issues, May 10, 2013

    220 is an underutilized asset in the amateur community, so having a LOW cost means of working 220 is a good thing.
    The TYT TH-9000 is a decent cheap gateway to 220.
    Typical Chinese radio, NOT equivalent to YaeComWood.

    Pro:
    1. 55 watts without a fan, nice for indoor air conditioned use
    2. All the repeater necessities: tones, DTMF, scan, control via mike
    3. Appears well made overall.
    4. The manual, though mediocre, is better written than most cheap Chinese radio manuals.
    5. Good audio both in and out according to QSO’s.
    6. Not too difficult to program manually, or with a non-supplied USB cable/PC
    7. Narrow/wide FM

    Con:
    1. VERY poor user interface.
    The function keys are not marked with function, only P1, P2, etc. NO descriptors pop up on the LCD either.
    The keys are modal, press a key for over 2 seconds and it does something entirely different from pressing it quickly.
    Again, no indications. You WILL need to keep the printed manual (approx 5″ square but with large print) handy.
    2. Radio Frequency interference.
    Both I and another ham with a 9000 are having RFI problems with noise into nearby audio speakers with using this radio, even in low power mode. My friend’s electronic door bell buzzes when he keys. And his J-pole is located some 12 feet OVER the door bell. I had to relocate my antenna over 20 feet AWAY from TV speakers to avoid a loud buzzing sound when keying.
    3. No fan, if used mobile, this rig WILL get very warm.
    4. No squelch knob.
    5. No warranty information, ANYWHERE. Not in manual, not in package, not on website.
    6. Non-standard “T” power plug/socket, not compatible with other mfgs.

    Minor annoyances:
    1. Mike switch feels very cheap.
    2. Three LCD color choices, pure blue, pure red, purple, NO yellow or green NOR the orange shown in the Amazon image.

    This is a nice 220MHZ band mobile amateur radio. It is simple to use, very intuitive. It has a lot of power and clean audio. Also, it is the least expensive option as a mobile rig in the 220 MHz band to date. If you are looking for a mobile 220MHz rig without shelling out a lot of dough this radio is a great option.
