Linton LT-2288/3288 Programmable Transceiver

Motorola GP388 housing design clone Linton LT-3288 is a UHF (VHF LT-2288) Two-Way Radio from in China.
LT-3288 covers 400~470MHz including Amateur 70cm HAM/Business/FRS/GMRS/PMR446/CPC409 band. LT-2288 covers 136~174MHz including Amateur 2m HAM/Business/MURS band.
The Radio requires no computer/external device to program. 99 Channel Memory capacity with Alphanumeric channel naming capability, Repeater shift, CTCSS code per channel. Rotary Encoder makes easy to operate this radio.

Rotary Encoder 
LT-3288 /2288 is very well built around Aluminum Alloy chassis inside. Rotary Encoder is very handy especially having 99 channel memory. Unlike some other radios, you don't have to press UP/DOWN buttons repeatedly. Also the encoder works just like a tuning knob on Direct Frequency mode. 

▲ Alphanumeric Channel Naming
Channel Naming capability is one of unique features of this radio, think as 5 letters memo. Programmed channels become more useful.

Errors in Operation Manual
Manual covers just basic operations and Menu Mode instruction is incorrect describing only 4 setups, actually 11 on the radio. 4 setups correspond to identical looking KYD TK-338, probably they didn't update manual upon upgrade on firmware or processor. Functions are correct on manual.

Computer Programming capability (unverified) is on spec. but no info on cable. Software is downloadable from manufacturers' web site.
