Comments:

The Baofeng portable is very a ruggedly built portable. it has great reception and seems to be able to handle what ever is thrown at it. I use one along with others and they keep on working well in all kind of conditions. I use them on the trail when i am out riding and that is dusty hot rainy conditions. the audio is very good to excellent. then range is surprising good from such a small package. I own several of them and they all are working just fine. I do find that the battery doesnt quite last as long as advertised but you can work around that. other wise it is a big bang for the buck..

Comments:

Let's face it. A radio like this has never been available before for anything less than 100.00 and probably twice the price. It performs as good or better than specs and equal with some japanese radios Durability unknown at this time... time will tell cheap to replace or keep an extra programmed radio as backup

Comments:

the instructions are vague and hard to understand. It lacks ease of being able to programmed with a simple stroke. It is confusing to have to go back and forth between channels and frequencies to program the radio. Also the antenna connector should be a bnc instead of the one that is on it. And it could do with out the gimmick like the flash light and siren. What does that have to do with a two way radio anyway.??
