  • Better with Repeaters

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Great dual-band HT with great battery life for such a tiny radio. Go with one of the bright coloured ones like red or yellow - these things are about as tall as the old 1970s rigs were wide.

    Cons:

    Point to point voice was difficult as you can hear everyone else running at 5w (great reception) and you couldn't respond at 3 watt. Wouldn't use without a repeater.

    OtherThoughts:

    The USB charger is super handy to have around for other devices as well. Was able to install the HT in a car using a 12v to USB adapter.

    Bottomline:

    Great radio for a city-wide repeater system.
