Comments:

Use as a combination pager & firefighter handheld. Cheaper per user one unit vs two units. Transmit power is great. I can hit a repeater 15 miles away when outdoors & primary repeater 5 miles away is no problem from inside buildings. Clear powerful audio As with most Icom program instructions they are not real clear but adequate. About the size of a Minitor pager. Haven't tried the stubby antenna yet but that would make it more carry friendly like a pager. Programming is easy and quick, The most difficult thing is there are so many options it takes a while to decided what you really want the radio to do.
