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

Pros:
Radio is relatively small in size It comes at a nice price It's easy to use once properly set up Meny system is actually easier to use than other more expensive radios (Yaesu)
Cons:
Does not give a "quality" feel
Other:
We use this radio for communicating when skiing in small groups. For this purpose it is a good bargain. Only consideration is: Could it be more waterproof?
Bottomline:
Cheap and decent radio for skiing in groups. An extra length antenna adds to the overall performance of the radio
