    I have found the newer 5 watt 80 channel uniden unit I have has a way better range than my old 40 channel 5w one, so I am glad I upgraded. I have had no problems communicating with any of the 40 and 80 channel units in any convoy I have taken part in.

    Yes would be the answer ,but I dont see the point really as we only use a couple of channels as it is now.
    being 10,15 and possibly 18. So why would I want an 80 channel radio, just saying.lol

    ive got an older style 40ch in the pooey and 80ch in the toyota, im hearin the not usin many channels thing, and the uniden 80 channel is probably 3 years old and is starting to occasionally play up. the older gme 40 ch is waterproof and is still going strong haha, i dont see the use for an extra 40 channels, maybe just more choices for channels without other people on them haha. All the same, i wont be upgrading the patrols uhf until the one it has now finally cooks it!
    Assuming I'm like most other girls is your first mistake...

    Sold my old 40 for more than I paid for it, have 2 X 80 channel s, one on scan and the other to communicate with the convoy. If all have 80s we pick a high channel for convoy traffic, the nobs don't seem to be there yet!

    Also great to have the 80 channels so I can find a clear channel to use it with the cheap pair of Oricom handhelds, when being guided by a spotter and winching.

    I have a brand new 80 channel job sitting here doing nothing,
    It was fitted in my camper and used as a homebase radio,
    now I think Ill re fit it in the Patrol if I can find room, maybe inside the
    2nd glove box, just dont know where I could fit it
