Very good radio – Dual Frequency Display Multi Band Walkie-Talkie with VOX/Flashlight/FM Radio (VHF/UHF) Reviews

Pros:
Fantastic price! You will not find such a versatile radio at anything less than twice what this sells for. Great frequency range. Picks up my local taxis, security guards, police, EMS. Feels steady and well made! Comes with a bright flash light Good power. Got about 1km in with simplex communication in a suburb with no line of sight. Haven't tried any repeaters because that would be illegal for unlicensed user like me Very good sound quality especially on UHF FM Radio feature is nice Good english manual
Cons:
It doesn't allow 390-400MHz which is annoying because there is some interesting mil air there. The provided AC adapter is for 120V only and is 14VAC out. But don't fear, I used a 12V DC 1A adapter from a router and it worked fine :) Doesn't fit well into charging dock. I take the battery out and place it into the dock Lack of DTMF could be problem for amateurs A little bit fiddly, but manual is helpful
Other:
Bottomline:
Great radio. Even for the unlicensed, it makes a great reciever. Ever wanted to listen to the police radio? With this you can (provided there analog!) Best radio for the price. Very happy. 5 stars
