    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Just Plain Awesome!
    Build quality feels extremely solid in hand.
    Has a very wide channel/frequency spectrum.
    In field programing / Front Keypad
    Nice antenna range!
    Unlocked for different frequencies! :D
    Knob has no wobble, extreme plus
    (does not feel cheap in hand, feels expensive)
    I heard it works with most kenwood accessories.
    I picked up ambulances and police dispatch already!
    Totally awesome!

    Cons:

    No in radio menu, have to memorize the codes to punch in by hand, this is also a plus to keep people who dont know them from messing with it.
    manual is ok but some functions are mislabeled, bad translation.
    has a semi unusual antenna connector, for the USA, or that is what I have been told.
    charging dock could be a better fit, covers some buttons while in dock, and belt clip interferes while in dock, so keep keypad locked when you insert in to charging dock or keep it off.

    Bottomline:

    If you are thinking of getting this , DO IT! Its a totally awesome radio.
    May not be legal in some countries, and customs in your country may take it if opened.
    Ive always wandered if customs agents keep items for themselves when they open it and see what the items are :O.
    But its whatever, if you like it or want it and wana take the risk, order it :).
