You will not be disappointed.

Comments about the equipment in your own words:

This radio has great performance and is very rugged. Is has outlasted 2 batteries, survived desert heat and worked well when I have left it overnight in my car during a Michigan winter. I have hit a repeater 40 miles away working from the roof of a building. This is a purchase worth many times the cost.

Comments This radio is a bargain! It would be difficult to program for a new ham though, and lacks a scan feature. You also have to program the channel and PL info in before listening to a desired frequency. It is remarkably easy to use for a novice once it is programmed. The manual is in broken english. The selling price is competetive. With stock antenna it has comparable performance to my Yaesu VX-6r in an urban enviroment with the Yaesu rubber duck.
