    This replaced the original battery pack, which failed.

  2. Radio VV898 Radio Conversion Kit review by GW on 6/29/2017

    The conversion kit works with the battery and radio, however it has no options for an external earphone which should disconnect the speaker when the user is walking with the backpack. The unit has an input charging port for the lithium battery, but does not have a bypass switch which would allow the use of a 13.6 VDC source to the radio. I made these modifications and now it serves my needs. I would recommend the unit if the above modifications are made.

  3. Good Unit poor antenna connector review by GMRS / HAM User on 6/25/2017

    This is a quality product with one serious flaw. The antenna connector is of poor quality and easily receives interference. I removed the antenna connector and pigtail and installed a bulkhead connector and pl259 x2 16 inch pigtail and now have zero loss and no interference. The rest of the enclosure works well. One other thing to note is you will need to dismantle your VV-898 and solder on the jumper wires to enable the use of the on / off switch.
