Very good radio. I like the dual band a lot. I wood tell anyone if there going tobuy this radio there getting there money's worth
I am quite pleased with my UV8D. It has clean audio, seems to be well constructed. Easy to program by hand. It has cross band repeat which ive used a few times (the radio gets warm after a while, so get a cheap fan to help keep it cool). There's nothing wrong with the new UV9 if you want to monitor aviation or public service (if there are any analog frequency users above 700 MHz). I'm buying the extra hi capacity battery for it.. Hurricane season is just a few months away. This will be my primary HT. Also, I left the plastic screen protector on. Doesn't affect my view of the screen.
Ad is very misleading. Item pictured does not match the model number.
