*NEW MAGNUM1* Unlock

Thanks to Bubba and Chas for sending me the unlock for the new version of the Magnum1 that’s recently been released. This is he Unlock for any radio with a serial number starting snd higher than 18 at the beginning. In this case I hunk it represents the very latest version with all the enhancements fitted.

  1. yes heard all the horror stories but people still buy them if I was after one I would buy the proper magnum radios out there.


  2. Hi Simon,

    Mine is from the first batch of radio when it was released a while back.

    Sorry I cannot be of help to other guys who have the latest one.

    All I can say is the one that I have is awfull and I was very disappointed.Poor frequency stability,missing frequencies and all sorts.

    I should have known better as I tried a Maxlog 8800 and that was pretty much the same.

    Sorry I cannot be of help.

    All I would advise is buy one of the ‘established’ Chinese constructed radios.Even from when they started they was still useable radio’s.

    Just my opinion!

    • Hi Dean.

      Your super kind to reply again.

      Your words are wise and I found the same with M8800 I imported from 409 Shop in HK.

      Have a great evening
      Simon 🧙‍♂️


  3. I’ve got one of these in my collection……….

    I keep seeing it pop up on the blog.Its a horrible radio!.

    I genuinely cannot believe that Magnum have put their name to this radio.Considering when they started in the 90’s,they gave us some great radio’s.Build quality is deplorable!.

    Just my thoughts mind!

    • Hi Dean. Is yours one of these new ones or from the last series that were out a few years back? Because if it’s a new one I’ve got loads of guys who’ve got loads of questions about it 😇

      This is the export mod for the new version so I’m just curious

      Best Wishes


  4. great if you can solder my effort solder a pl259 but far to shaky to do that but a good way to show what to do thanks Simon
