Awesome!  Time owned: 6 to 12 months
I have been using this radio for about 8 months now and it is by far one of the best. Our Fire officers use them as fire pagers with the stored voice option and fire ground communication. I have dropped this thing several times and not a dent, scratch, or problem as yet. If your looking to consolidate some of the crap you carry daily this is a great radio/pager for fire and EMS use. There are several nice options but 1 I really like is the ability to change your scan channels on the fly is perfect. The programming software is well worth the small fee they charge. Anyone can use it...
