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

Pros:
Cheap, Li-Ion Battery, Sold w/ Earset, Small footprint, dual band, have high power in VHF and UHF, have CTCSS and DCS encode/decode, ANI, etc
Cons:
It's half duplex (natural for the price) and the configuration are not so easy and intuituve. Lacks shortcut buttons for REV, CTCSS/DCS and a programable range scan.
Other:
If possible I will ask to improve the operations menu and a suggestion for DX: spare batteries it's a good idea.
Bottomline:
It's a vey nice radio for the price! I recommend it for someone that's wants a dual band radio for the price of monoband radio
