Radioddity GD-55 HT

The Oddity of Radioddity


I bought this radio mainly out of curiosity. Purchased from an eBay seller us_discounts1. Good seller. It arrived quickly in nice fresh new condition.

First thing is the programming cable has a counterfeit Prolific chip. That's first impression down the drain right off. If you install Prolific USB-to-Serial driver 3.2.0.0 from here,

What you are doing is installing an old driver that doesn't know about this particular version of the counterfeit Prolific chip. I would really be pleased if Radioddity replaced the cable with a legal one ASAP.

The radio itself is built like a
tank and does seem to work OK. I'll review a bit more as I get used to it.
