    This is my first two way radio capable of being used as a HAM radio. I already programed in the local emergency channels and have set it up as a scanner. Works great for that. From my home in Alliston I can also hit the repeater in Barrie VE3 RAG with the stock antenna. Impressive. I still have to get my Technicians License so I have not used it to transmit yet.

      Great radio and features for the price. Big plus is the extended battery which gives it a nice feed in the hand and great battery life. I did upgrade the antenna to a Nagoya NA-701 which is an improvement over the stock antenna.
      I would also recommend picking up the programming cable here and then you can use the “Chirp” program (free) to program your radio easily.
      Please disable transmit (Set Duplex to off for that frequency in Chirp) for any of the Police/Fire/Ambulance etc. frequencies your program in as you don’t want to mess with their transmissions.. they don’t like that 🙂
      Overall, I would recommend this radio highly..

    Great radio, smaller than I thought but that’s a bonus. The build quality for this price point is excellent, on par with more expensive Motorola and Kenwood units I use every day at work. Radio came programmed with local channels of interest, definitely recommend this option as its ready to use out of the box. I also suggest picking-up the programming cable and getting the software Chirp, allows for easy configuration of the radio. Working towards my HAM license to be able to legally transmit 🙂
