Hearty little radio  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
My best assessment of this HT would put it at about a 4.7 overall. It's a great portable with good audio and sensitivity. Repeaters fifteen miles away (line-of-sight) report full quieting when I'm at 1 watt, something I don't hear with my Baofeng UV-5R.

It easily competes with my Yaesu FT-60R, but at a much lower cost. Wish the buttons were a bit bigger. The belt clip snaps onto the battery instead of the unit, unlike the Baofengs and the Yaesu T-60R.

Field tests will prove more things to me, but so far I would buy more.
