Reviews & stories

Excellent value

Leixen VV-898, Dual band mobile transceiver

This radio comes in three versions Leixen VV898, Jetstream JT 279M v1.02, and Jetstream JT v1.03.

The radio itself is a very good value for the price.
Well built, fit and finish are good.
Audio is clear, pushbuttons well arranged, and Menu is user friendly.

The radios ergonomics are good, but the learning curve is steep because the User Manual is poorly written "Chinglish"; which is hard to understand.

The manual for the Jetstream v1.02 appears to be a update of the Leixen manual, and because of firmware changes between the two models; it has several errors.

The Jetstream v1.02 software is very poorly written, and hard to use.

All points considered, this radio is a good value.
