Cotre C001D Cracker Jack Box Prize


The C001D ($13) radios are not recommended endorsed for use on the PNWDigital Network. See the review page for more information.

While they are very low cost, they are especially poor for first time DMR users and should not be considered a primary radio. The user’s DMR experience is likely to be inferior as the radio is not fully compatible with our network and not a good first impression of Ham DMR. Simplex and single slot hotspot use may be OK as well a a glovebox or secondary radio.

More will be written about this line of Cootie Radios as the team tries to make them work will our network features. They may actually make a decent monitor radio as some are finding niche uses that do not require transmit.

But for now, it should be considered an experimental radio and not a primary DMR radio for new DMR users.

  1. So added some of his posts (converted to pdf’s) to document under “Cootie”.

    Oh please, no need to say thanks. 🙂

  2. This radio reminds me of that ‘calculator’ digital watch I got back 40+ years ago… it certainly did not replace any of my calculators!
    Having trouble locating the PDFs that you uploaded Mike, Any chance you could post a link? I tried searching using ‘better search’ method.
