I purchased a few of these for EMCOMM and was pretty happy with the results. Two issues showed up immediately on use, one failed on rx audio, another had the PTT cover snap off. The radios are easy to use, have some hidden features that were passed along to me and are good on battery life. I use the radio as a combo everything radio with over 50 freqs programmed in. The programming via computer has not worked for me but I was told there are a few versions of software so will be checking that out. Will probably buy some more to fill out my cache but might get the dual band model.
