Another day, another device… No that’s not true! Like every self acclaimed Radio Amateur or Network Radio enthousiast I stand in front of the mirror every morning claiming two things: “that belly ain’t big” and “I don’t need another radio”… There’s always one lie in the morning 😉
Anyway, when we met up with the guys from Zello Radio Benelux last weekend I got my hands on a Tokie TK1000: A small sized device with a medium screen and the standaard menu keys, but no dial pad. I was intrigued!
A guest review by our very own NR001 – Filip about his preferred Network Radio. This review also appeared in Radio User but we got permission to publish it here.
“In my continuous search for the ‘perfect’ network radio, I recently came across a device called the Telo TE590. The first thing that drew me to it was its slim looking design.
“I searched the internet for dealers and came across www.network-radios.co.uk “At around £395, the TE590 wasn’t inexpensive, but on the other hand this looked like it could be the high-end device that I have been searching for. Because my interests in NR are more on the Android side, I don’t spend money on traditional radios!
Apparently there are a lot of new kids in town! (see previous post) The T-526 from Inrico is from my point of view the only true successor for the T199/192 models. Thanks to HF Electronics I was able to have a go with this compact 4G screenless device.
There’s a new kid in town and it’s a slim one. The Inrico T-620 is a 4G dual sim Network Radio with an extra SD slot and a small display. It has a battery capacity of 3600 mh. Al this features made it look like hell of competition for the bigger en blind T199 and T192. It’s slim, elegant, compact and the small display allows you to see if your connection to data or wifi is established.
Another Network Radio out of my favourite devices list: the Tele TE-390. Again from the Telo family, this is a very robust and compact device. Nice and clear display with bright letters. The battery life on this one is phenomenal!
