Comments:

While in repeater mode, I am constantly switching back and forth between bands to use as a mobile to talk on the repeater, but then have to switch while out of the truck so that mobile will relay my HT. It also drops the conversation received on the repeater so that those in the truck only hear my side of the QSO. Still working out the bugs.

Comments:

Satisfied with this radio mostly. The radio works as I need it. PC programing was best to input freqs on. The mic connector on side was only fault on design but you know what your buying. I use as base radio everyday and The radio doesn't pick up anymore rx overload on 2m then other radios. Good performer you may get a couple watts differant then stated on hi power but ok. Quad band antennas don't work! Use triplexer and switch box on 10m/50mhz output too two amtennas. I use for 2m 6m 70cm 3 differant antennas.

Comments:

So I've been running this rig for over 3 months now, and well honestly I couldn't be happier. Here's a few things to keep in mind about this radio before you buy it. Let me get the CONS out of the way first... 1.) The Mic keypad is that standard Chinese layout which drives you nuts at first. But after you use it a few times you get used to it. I really disliked the 0 being on the right at first, but then got used to it. 2.) It would be nice if there was a CW ID on the radio. That way you can be fully "legal" if you use the radio in 2way crossband. 3.) There is NO SSB or AM transmit on this radio, and there is AM receive only. If this radio had SSB and AM it would be the PERFECT technician class radio. Which brings me into the PROS... 1.) This radio is the closest there is to a PERFECT technician class radio. If only it had SSB and AM it would be the BOMB. 2.) The size of the radio is just right. Not too small, not too big, and solidly made. 3.) LOUD volume for those of us that's hard of hearing. But I agree with other reviewers about the volume "1" as being a little too loud. I've found to ways around this. Either set your speakers to "2" and then use the speaker built into the mic lowering the volume with the thumb wheel, OR put the speakers in "1+2" turn down the hand mic speaker all the way then the volume out of the rig is much quieter on "1". 4.) Pretty sensitive receive. When working simplex from your QTH it works pretty good for pulling out those "weak" signals. 5.) Crossband repeater is pretty... no strike that... is VERY good for not having to use a duplexer. Just make sure and do the math before you set up your frequencies and make sure you are NOT withing a 3rd harmonic from VHF to UHF. If you are, it has a LOT of static. Even with another brand or two that has this capability, don't go above half power for the transmit if you're going to use it a lot. If you do, then the radios get HOT. (more on crossband later) 6.) MUCH better performance then the 920.…

Been very pleased. Easily talk to those on 2M from 50 miles away using a simple jpole. Talking 10 meter FM using homebrew inverted V. Been having lots of fun for a lot less money than I thought I would have to spend.
