    Involvement:Novice  (still getting used to it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Great two-way transmission dual band radio at an excellent price for a beginner.
    Also includes an FM radio which shuts off whenever you receive a transmission on your selected frequency.

    Cons:

    The radio is not easy to use and program.
    The programming cable is a must to get the most out of this radio.

    OtherThoughts:

    I haven't tried the included programming software.
    After some research, I went with CHIRP which is open source and runs on Windows and Linux. It's easy to use and updated frequently.
    Watch out for rules and regulations in your area. This radio can transmit on restricted frequencies (like police and fire) and can get you in trouble. It can transmit on FRS and GMRS but is not certified to do so (at least in the US).
    You should have an amateur radio license to transmit with this

    Bottomline:

    Great price with many resources on the web to help you to use it.
    Get the programming cable (SKU# 66578) with it!
