  • Not too bad

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

    Pros:

    Radio looks professional

    Not bad power output at all for the price (however it isn't 5W)

    CAN be programmed with kenwood software and cable so you can put the frequencies of various things like security guards, taxis, cops etc (but don't transmit!!!!)

    Can be used (albeit) unlawfully for PMR and FRS

    Not bad range for the price

    Cons:

    It isn't 5W. That is spurious. I found that on many other sites it is advertised as 3W. Whilst I'm not certain which is correct at $30 I suspect the lower one is more likely to be accurate

    Charger feels cheap and nasty. It's very light and just feels "unsafe" if you know what I mean

    Not really a con but almost useless without a programming cable

    OtherThoughts:

    Bottomline:

    Not a bad radio at all. But make sure you get a programming cable for it
