Great Radio for the price! – BAOFENG BF-888S 5W 400~470MHz 16-CH Walkie Talkie - Black Reviews

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

Pros:
Worked out of the box. Good range. I bought 2 of these and they will be used around my property.
Cons:
No adapter to charge from the car.
Other:
You will need a cable and software to change frequencies. I got a cable (found one on eBay for $14.98 w/free shipping/it is a Kenwood TK-208 cable) and downloaded the software from Baofeng's web site - use the BF-480 software. Take your time to read all instructions to change any feature on these radios. Lots of help is on Yahoo's Group "http://groups.yahoo.com/group/BF-888S/"
Bottomline:
Nice small radio. I will be more of them.
