Not 'reverse SMA' like WiFi, just opposite - male on the radio, female
on the antenna. Apparently some Motorolas are the same way.
I'm really happy with the PX-777 so far. I haven't gone through all of
the features, but it compares favorably with the VX-150. The audio
output is good, and I'd read some reviews that said the mic wasn't
great, but it sounds good to me.
I need to do some battery life tests. The standard 1200 mAh battery is
about the same size as the VX-150's 700 mAh battery and weighs a lot less.
And this, by the way, is why you haven't seen the PX-777 marketed as
such in the US:
They've got an exclusive distribution agreement, and they're sold under
the Infinity brand for about $230.
