I have had this model radio for several years and the reception is better than radios that are priced much higher.
Radios have been used, easy to program. Very satisfied with my purchase.
reliable radio good service from mine. I've had mine for a period of time and just bought one for a friend after recommending it
We use this radio right now as a scanner and works great clear channels, and easy to program , eventually we will use the ham radio
I use this radio daily as my radio club nets are linked to a 1.25 meter repeater that I can get from my place. The radio is built well and the service from Cricket Ventures is great.
radio is used on my boat and in the woods. the cost makes it a good choice should something happen to it. dropped in water or covered in snow.
I bought this because I wanted a radio with the 220 Band This one does the job. Good audio quality Low interference Feels good in your hand Things I dont like If you have the auto backlight on, it stays on constantly while scanning. Only 2 options, on or off. So I keep it off if I am scanning to save battery. Not a big problem. Other then that, the green light for receive is so bright, when using in the car at night, it lights the whole car up. Aside from that, I am completely happy with it, just a couple little quirks.
Just wanted to add an update to my earlier review on this radio. After having used it a few days and testing some repeaters at 35 miles plus. I am impressed with range plus voice quality on this radio. Here in the mountains of Western North Carolina, it is a challenge for any radio. Don't know how it will hold up in the long run, but so far I am well pleased with this rig. Going to hook it up to beam ant pretty soon. For the price, you can't go wrong with it. I use three software programs for it. Chirp, KG-UV Commander plus the Wouxun. Each have their pros and cons. What I can't do with one, I do with the other.
This radio is used both as business and Ham radio. Has good range and clear. Would be nice if encoder knob would still work after locking the keypad. So far, not a real problem.
