  • Decent radio for skiing in groups

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Radio is relatively small in size
    It comes at a nice price
    It's easy to use once properly set up
    Meny system is actually easier to use than other more expensive radios (Yaesu)

    Cons:

    Does not give a "quality" feel

    OtherThoughts:

    We use this radio for communicating when skiing in small groups. For this purpose it is a good bargain. Only consideration is: Could it be more waterproof?

    Bottomline:

    Cheap and decent radio for skiing in groups. An extra length antenna adds to the overall performance of the radio
