This radio is a great quality product at a budget-friendly price point. Many useful accessories are available for under $10, so you can adapt it to your needs. While the user interface isn’t the greatest, a programming cord is available at a reasonable price, which can be used with CHIRP software to make programming an easier process. It provides 4 watts in the frequency ranges of 136-174 MHz and 400-480 MHz. The small size allows it to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand, with buttons that are still adequately sized. By updating the antenna, you can improve the reach of what you can hear significantly. This is a great starter radio at a manageable price.
