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

Pros:
Good and very cheap radio for amateurs. Range and battery are very good. Automatic battery charger, repeater function, headset, belt clip...etc.
Cons:
None that I have discovered. Does not ship with programming software and programming cable. US plug... I bought an EU connector.
Other:
I bought an (SKU: 81102) throat mic. Work perfectly! Could not find a similar product for this price range in any other place.
Bottomline:
Before trying to transmit with it check the laws in your area to make sure you use the correct frequencies.
