Inexpensive HTs – Puxing PX777 Plus

Every now and again a fellow needs to buy something to share – “loaners & gifts” – a decent but very affordable bit of equipment to lend out or even give to a starting ham.

With this in mind I purchased a couple of Puxing PX777 Plus HT’s.

The Puxing Website:

Here is their stock photos of inside the HT:

So far they seem fairly standard – much like a the radios sold for hunters and casual use on other frequencies at places like Cabelas or Gander Mountain.

Here are the eHam reviews:

I bought mine from MURS-Radio, as they occasionally have discounts and are simply good folk!

  1. I have also been interested in the Puxing radios. They seem to get extremely favorable reviews all over. And they’re already wide-open. Thought about buying a bunch of them, seeing as how they’re pretty much disposable. Could make great emergency radios in a pinch.
