I'm well pleased with this radio works great . I can hit repeaters 30 miles away where my baofengs will not and the large screen is very nice. The only thing that don't like is you can't see the screen in bright sun lite but not a big deal for me WQTB 474

Excellent crossband 2/70 HDReview by FIllC
(Posted on 8/5/16)

Very good sensitivity and the crossband repeater is nicely done. Good air sound. The speaker is a little underpowered but it's not meant as a work radio either. How can you beat this for the price?

Great radio hits the repeaters very nice im very happy i picked this radio

Great radio. Highly recommend it...Review by Sleepless Nights
(Posted on 5/28/16)

This is an update of my original review of this radio. I had to give it an extra star because it is a wonderful addition to my collection. Although I didn't give it a five star rating I still highly recommend this radio. It feels good in my very large hands and the exterior case has a nice solid feel. The knobs turn smooth, the buttons feel secure and respond well when pressed. I get great signal reports whether operating simplex or working repeaters. Received audio is clear although it does sound a little blocked by the radio's case, but even at max volume there is no speaker distortion. I travel quite a bit so I make use of the unit's 999 channels by storing the repeater frequencies of the states/cities which I travel into blocks of 100. The only major issue that I have with this unit is battery drain. Without a lot of transmitting and a moderate amount of receive the supplied 1700mAh battery may last about 8 hours. Even with the radio turned off and not in use for several days a full battery loses about one half to three quarters of it's charge. I suggest upgrading to the 2600mAh battery and keep the stock battery on hand as a backup. Overall though this a fantastic radio at a great price and don't forget it also functions as a cross band repeater for those times when you and your group need a bit more coverage.
