    5 out of 5

    Good radio for a beginner HAM operator This is the first radio I bought after receiving my amateur radio license so I don't have anything to compare it to. As a first time radio, it was easy to program using a programming cable (sold separately) and CHIRP. The included battery holds up well, I've had it mostly on for days, listening with a few minutes of talking here and there as something piques my interest, and only had to recharge it twice since I've had it. The 3 power settings are useful I suppose. I'm able to hit a repeater about 6 miles from my house on medium, however, I've been told when I run it up to high my sound quality is much better. It claims to be outputting at 8 watts on high, I have no gear to test and verify this claim but I've seen YouTube videos of people testing and it's somewhere around 7.5 watts. Maybe I'll run over to HRO one of these weekends to see if they have something which can test it. I was able to make a contact a few nights ago on 2 meters simplex at about 12 miles. Of course, he was probably at 500 feet of elevation and line of sight to me and had a 50-foot antenna behind his house so.... I think if this is a first-time radio for you, you can't go wrong. It's cheap enough that if you break the radio it doesn't hurt so much and it will get you into using a radio and used to radio etiquette.
