This unit overheats while operating, it will freeze while keying up and lock in TX mode which means you have to hold the power button down to get it to shut off then try to boot it again. I was able to get the unit to just shy of 1.21 SWR and figured I was good to go. Well, took it out on the highway and keyed up, that's where it all went wrong. Started beeping and squealing like the mic is too close to the speaker unit and gives feedback. I tried the ANL with no luck then tried running in local mode and that's when it locked into the TX mode and started getting warm. I did manage to get a transmission out but the person said it had a strong electronic distortion and was not exactly "fun to listen to" on his end. Of course I tossed the packing and all cause I figured when the SWR was dialed in I would be all set. So that's my lesson learned.. Understand that this review is related to the radio in totality and in no way an indication of the fine folks here at buytwoway! It is not their fault the unit is just made poorly, and that I tossed the packing material and box. They did a great job getting the unit out to me and I couldn't be happier with the service from them. I just would strongly advise you avoid THIS radio, not the seller!
