Now that I've been using the radio a while here is an update.

While the manual is better than most Chinese manuals, it still leaves some to be desired with many of the descriptions being vague or incomplete. But for the most part still pretty well done with correct grammar.

I've figured out how to change the scan feature. It's not real intuitive.

Being able to monitor two frequencies at once is slick. You can listen to the output of a repeater on one side and it's input on the other. Still does not replace a REV button.

Receive audio quality is excellent with no need for an external speaker and I've been getting great reports on my transmit audio.

If you change the power setting on a memory channel, then change channels, when you come back it does NOT remember that change. To make the change permanent, you have to change in in programing.

At 1/2 the price of the Kenwood I was looking at, I would not hesitate to recommend this radio to anyone.
