Pros:
What i like in this radio its a clear audio and high sensitivity. mien is 0.11mkV SINAD. Automatic charger is good. Battery is good. Very useful option programmable side buttons such as SCAN channel on/off, Vox ,voice prompt .
Cons:
After measuring output power with fresh battery was only 1.8 watts on PMR freqs. No waterproof knob rubber protection.
Other:
For programming this radio i use BF-480 software and Kenwood program cable. No problem if u have minimal know large in radio programming. many times used in deep forest. distance in that case till 600-800m with similar hand held radio. On the fields countryside more then 1500m
Bottomline:
I bought it when this radio was 33$. now is cheaper and its good.
