munja – BAOFENG BF-888S 5W 400~470MHz 16-CH Walkie Talkie - Black Reviews

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

Pros:
Cheap, well build, nice range in urban cca 2km, open space (seaside) more than 10km (boat to land) , easy to program. I use it as PMR radio to contact family members. Battery last about one day on light use. You must program it before use because it is default programmed on frequency that you cannot use in Europe.
Cons:
None
Other:
Great value for money, highly recommended
Bottomline:
Just buy it if you like cheap PMR. It is better than Kenwood TK3301 in class of range and battery duration. The only part where Kenwood is better IP56 protection.
