Stop breaking them though, that is an issue...

The radio in question is the Puxing PX-777. I had it out today and had one of the guys at "my home field" program one frequency into it. It worked great. What I'd like now is a list of all the common frequencies, any channels that they go by and a good tutorial on all its functions. I'll check YouTube and Google.

Post 1 of this thread has a list of the frequencies that are used.

There will be plenty of tutorials on programming the radio on YT, the owners manual is a bit engrishly but it is understandable as well.

Yeah the 777 is a bit of a pain because you have to connect to a pic or another radio (i think they can do that) to program it. That's why I like my 888 and my beofeng uvr-5 you can program em right on the keypad.
If you have the cable then a lot of the soft wear will have the channel list alrdy in them (or you can find pre built list files for them) or you can tweak the settings a bit or enter them all yourself.

I grabbed a Baofeng GT-3. Should all of the frequencies loaded be adequate? Great read in this thread. Just wondering if there is a preset patch I can load into the radio or if it's alright where it is now.

Depends on what you mean by "adequate". I'm going to assume you mean basic FRS/GMRS channels.

Here is a very useful chart (it's also referenced on the 1st page of this thread). You can check the frequencies set on your GT-3 and compare to these ones. Personally, I printed a similar chart out with also frequencies of blister pack radios, laminated it, and keep it with my kit.

Does anyone know if the SRS Kenwood PTT is able to work with the repro headsets in a Baofeng radio?

Right now Im unable to get them to work together, and I dont really have the cash to buy a real set of sordins.

Are you sure the other radios have the same frequency programmed? My guess would be the radio you tried to talk to still had factory frequencies. But I'm no radio expert and I could be wrong.

Getting your radio to work with others is more than just tuning to the right frequency. There are other settings like the offset which tells your radio what frequency to listen on vs. which one to transmit on.

I suggest either learning to program your radio manually by following a guide (there are dozens on YouTube) or going out and buying the programming cable and using chirp software to set up multiple channels.

I highly recommend chirp for any amateur radio user. You can actually see what you are doing and using a keyboard is much easier than navigating the tiny buttons on a radio to program

just do a google search for chirp radio. It gets regular updates for pretty much any radio manufactured today

Problem is CHIRP doesn't seem to support my radios. Two Baofengs, a BF777S and a BF-F8+ and CHIRP doesn't see either.
Then again it's recently come into question about the quality of programming cord I have. AliExpress, y'know...
