Comments = I brought this Set on VK HAM, as i am a Foundation Lic in AUSTRALIA. I have a 10 watt Limit . This set with the internal speaker is average and the set deserves an external speaker. Programming by computer is the best way and the programming can be cloned from another set.
The user manual is reasonable but I find manually inputing freq's to the memory bank time consuming, the memory bank has space for 1000 frequency's.
Overall a very good set and I would recommend to any one.

Comments about the equipment in your own words:
Own 2 of these 2 meter radios and for the money they cant be beat .
The only down side is the (giant) heat sink gets rather hot but has not caused any problems.
Yaesu recently stopped making this model, however if I needed another 2 meter I would buy another .
