  • Great little radio

    Pros:

    Great value, tons of features for a low price. Range and battery life are good. The LED displays are neat, and can be turned off if you want to save battery life. The battery last pretty long and is quiet while charging.

    Cons:

    Programming on some firmware version may be hard. It took me a few days to be able to figure out the programming with the cable. I had to download the VIP software from Baofeng, and change the buad rate to 18400 to get it to work.

    OtherThoughts:

    This is a great amateur radio, cheap enough so that you can buy a few for use with camping, hunting etc. The range is a lot better than the cheap radios at department stores.

    Bottomline:

    This is a good quality radio that is well worth the money. Before trying to transmit with it check the laws in your area to make sure you use the correct frequencies.
