    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:

    I just received the UV-5R today, and I'm very impressed! The design and build quality are top drawer. The user interface is about what one would expect. The included accessories are also very nice.

    Cons:

    Some strange features including the seemingly inevitable white LED flashlight, plus an Alarm mode that defaults to actually transmitting whooping sounds over the air (set to SITE asap).

    OtherThoughts:

    QNB 23/10. HI HI.

    Lots of good and easy info on the web.

    I think I'll buy a programming cable. Freeware SW on the web.

    Bottomline:

    Such a good deal that it's kinda a no brainer... ...if you're a licensed ham, buy it.
