I really like this nice little radio. This is the best way to start with HAM radios. The price is just amazing. It's so cheap it doesn't matter if you drop it and it breaks and for this money you get a pretty complete HAM radio!!
Buy this radio!! Or a couple of them... or ten... :D Oh and buy the USB programming cable!! Makes progamming this radio very easy.
