Initial opinion on tera TR-590  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
Very easy to program with the software. I like that the belt clip is mounted to the radio instead of the battery. I was able to hit 1 repeater.with the stock antenna. Might do better with a better antenna. My Kenwood thf6 hit all of the repeaters. Should work fine for family on gmrs freqs and in a church for ushers to have communication. Wi) add more after i use it more archie af4zq

OK so far..  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
I bought one 7 months ago from HRO. I am not a power user, but it seems to work well with standard FM repeaters. I get good audio signal quality reports using both the internal mic and the cheaper external speaker/mic. Some minor issues: 1. For my car I wanted to use an external mic, but use the internal speaker. This is not possible with this radio, since the external mic and PTT circuits are hooked to both input connectors. 2. My radio would not program out of the box. HRO was willing to take the radio back but suggested a reboot first. After the reboot, operation was normal and programming software worked fine. 3. My battery died just out of the 6 month warranty. Cost me $37 to replace. Ouch! Batteries America wouldn't touch it. I would suggest running a load curve just before the 6 month battery warranty runs out so you can return it if necessary.
