High quality Amateur Radio unit. Dual band - both 2 meter and 70 centimeter capability. Long lasting Lithium Ion battery pack (uses a commonly available NP-60 battery pack). Good antenna gets good coverage. Has the features to be able to use your local HAM repeater - tones and offsets. Memory features allow you to store frequently used frequencies and settings (like repeater capabilities). Includes the charging cable and a AC to USB charging adapter. Handy built in LED flashlight on top is very convenient and cleaver. FM radio works well and will go back to the HAM band automatically if a signal is received there. Nice controls. Lots of settings to configure operation. Cool camouflage case colors. Charging base has no circuitry in it to monitor charging- better to use the radio to charge, or find an NP-60 smart charger to handle out of radio charging. The display is not alpha-numeric so it only displays frequencies, rather than being able to name memories. The settings are complex- it is better to get an aftermarket data cable and software to do serious programming like for repeaters. This is NOT a toy- this is the real deal Amateur Radio- type radio. This is a serious communications device but inexpensive enough to leave in your glovebox of your car for emergencies or backup to your main radio. At least in the US you need a HAM license to use it (but that is not hard to get- I did so you can too). I LOVE this radio. If you are a HAM, you should serious consider this radio to add to your radio collection if only to use as a glovebox backup! BUY IT!!
