It took me 30 minutes of troubleshooting to determine the supplied USB cable had a bad connection at the radio when using CHIRP to read the HT. I had to push the connection into the radio the entire time the computer was reading or writing to the radio. Also, the suppliped software for communicating with the radio didn't cover this model. In fact, it only covered 1 Wouxun model and lots of other brands. I haven't had enough comms on it to determine the value of the antenna, but I believe an aftermarket antenna is in my future. When less than a mile from a repeater, I got reports of weak and garbled comms with 5W output. The screen lights up every time there is any incoming signal, even if the squelch doesn't allow it to feed through. This is particularly annoying if using the unit in a car at night. Speaker/mic is good.
Good radio for the price. But the software provided isn't compatible with window 8. Which isn't explained with the packaging.
Great for the money. You can't go wrong with this radio.
