SMA-Male adapter for an antenna on the radio.
SMA-Female adapter on the antenna.
The charger doesn't really behave itself. It seems to blink red on a charged battery, but does charge batteries when they are less than half charged.
I measured the power output with a Diamond Antenna brand SX-1000 SWR & Power Meter.
Low power is 0.25 watts PEP.
Medium power is 1.5 watts PEP.
High power is 4.0 watts PEP.
All these were measured at 146.280 MHz.
I measured the Antenna with aMFJ-259B Antenna Analyzer.
The lowest SWR was 1.2:1 between 143.6MHz and 146.0MHz.
The SWR at 146.280 was 1.4:1.
The SWR at 148.0 was 1.7:1.
My antenna was biased towards the lower end of the 2 meter HAM band. (Your antenna might vary.)
Please do not trim your antenna unless you have away to measure it.
I could not test on the 70cm band, due to limitations in the my test equipment.
This antenna is much better that I thought, but not a hand-calibrated item for US Hams.
The radio puts out less power than is claimed.
It's a rugged, useful handy-talkie.
