Great radio! I bought three. Claimed output is almost identical to the product description. The sound is very clean and strong. Modulation good. Next I will describe the frequency and output power of all three transmitters. 1. 400-470MHz H 4w M 2.2w L 0.1w 350-390MHz H 3.8W M 2w L 0.1w 136-174MHz H 5.1w M 2.4w L 0.3w 2. 400-470MHz H 4.2w M 2.4w L 0....

1. Price. One of the best option you can find for superheterodyne. 2. Covers VHF/UHF HAM bands and more. Can be opened for transmission at 350-390MHz band if needed.
3. High sensitivity. I have feeling that my Yaesu Vx7r is a bit worse at VHF.
4. Has 6.25MHz step. Can be easily coupled with cheap PMR radio. Yaesu has this step on Vx8R only (I'm talking ... Read more
this radio is very durable. the battery is also good. i go about 4-5 days on one charge using it at work for about 5 hours a day. i havent found any. some people may say the settings are hard to change and stuff like that but once yo get used to it it is pretty easy to mess with. the quality is comparable to the motorola radios i use at work also. i ...

As a HAM Operator in Canada it can be hard to find a deal - this product is amazing as long as you can follow regulations. Much like the best HF base stations this unit has more bands than it needs. I programmed in the GMRS/FRS, WX Weather, Local Repeaters VHF and UHF, and some business band frequencies. Bought two and used the VOX function to build ... Read more
1. Very good performance relative to price. Price is good too.
2. build quality is really over my toughts.
3. size is best for me - not so small, not so big.
4. communication is OK - talk with HAMs on 70 band over the 3km with antenna included. Guys say this is very good result. Only one: It's much better to have dot-matrix display (as on Bao UV5R),... Read more
the best price over internet, a clear screen easy to understand with a lot of frequency to use. You could use it for your amateur radio, a lot of possibility. you can even add an earpiece for hands free operation the antenna is rare did not find any in my local retail store but DX have some for it.
the volume knob is a little out of the axle but it'... Read more
I have had this for over a year using it daily and love this radio. It performs extemely well. The best apart about this radio it is a fraction of the cost of a Kenwood or Motorola that has less features. Battery life is excellent. The instruction manual itself is almost useless. But as for the radio itself - not 1 complaint antenna is a bit long but ... Read more
Very capacious battery 2000 mA / h, running 90/5/5 to 5 days (off at night)!!!
Comfortable and bright flashlight
Very nice, deep modulation - similar to Yaesu-vx6
High transmission power None It is very convenient to use the transceiver with a Clip-on Microphone http://dx.com/p/3-5mm-2-5mm-clip-on-microphone-for-kenwood-walkie-talkies-1-... Read more
Good radio, strong and optimal signal reception and transmission. Fair value, loads quickly and with optimal battery life. Many features and complete for the use which proposes. Very good for lovers of communication. I have yet to encounter any problems, but I thought charging the battery a strange hiss, but usually carries. In most with no further ... Read more
Great price, many frequencies, easy to program just get usb cable to make it quick. Similar radios are 5-6 times more expensive. Pretty long range, we were testing it at 10km and it worked like a charm. Battery last for ever. none I got few other antennas, one to be more mobile, and other for greater range, they have worked great I got 2 radios and ... Read more
