Still a strong performer Time Owned: more than 12 months. I have the THE european version. Its design has also been copied by the early Chinese clone radios when this radio was no longer in production, which says a lot about its good looks.
This limits the output power somewhat but the operation duration is great compared to the original battery and it only adds about 1cm to the length of the rig compared to the battery. Audio is loud and clear. Which is good enough for me. I give it 5 stars for remaining relevant in this age of disposable electronics. The build quality is great.
I use it a lot with the supplied antenna and 3W through a repeater over 50 miles away, and I get consistently good reports with very little static. The only gripe I have is the controls. It seems like they wanted to reduce the number of buttons at all costs, making it much harder to use.
Every button has at least 3 sub-functions. It does one thing when pressed, another when F is pressed first, another if F is held down for a while, and yet another when it is held down while the receiver is turned on.
None of these sub-functions are marked anywhere on the transceiver. The commands are also not logically grouped. For example, the command to bring up the set-up menu, which you will use a lot, is holding down "Call" while turning the receiver on.
I used this a lot while I was travelling in countries with a different repeater plan than Europe, such as Australia. All in all a basic but well made handheld once you get used to the quirks
