HIERDA CD - UV55 ( First Review)

The company, [http://www.fjhd.com/] hubicated in China, has an exquisite care and monitoring of their products. We not know - we've never needed - how it works
after-sales service and how quickly they can solve a problem.


The Box.:
Well presented, containing the unit, battery, antenna, charger and base, belt clip and clamp. The instruction manual and quality control sticker.
It is imprinted, HOWEVER, the serial number, as seen in other brands.

In the hand.:
Sturdy and elegant looking .., is slightly heavier than frande and latest equipment .., all good done.
Stresses cleaning front and illuminated keypad. The bright display and good controls termination, PTT inclused.
Is not wather-proff, but because of their perfectly good finish can withstand a downpour. Stresses its antenna( SMA-M ), long, flexible, higher than the competancia.
HOWEVER, ornamental grill can accumulate a lot of heat if you leave your unit to the sun. The less achieved is the belt clip, which although good, I could not be extracted
without removing the battery.
(*)Not being a massive sales team, popular, has not ghadgets as other models, for eg no battery feed, Etc, Etc..

The instruction manual is clear and comprehensive, covering all the system operations that you can do with the equipment and some more that are Accessible through sofware
programming.

Operand.:
On hand .. is ergonomically comfortable to hold and docile. It requires a medium sized hand to operate with the belt clip installed.
When you turn ON suffers a few delay seconds and then starts the speech of welcome. Audio quality is excellent, with minimal distortion.
The standard battery is capable of charging more than 8v allowing it to operate 10 hours in stand bay.
The menu navigation is clear and intuitive, if combined consige keys and the knob on top.
Volume is controlled by potentiometer.
The display is clear and bright, perfectly identifies the mode and way of working. The S-Meter is reliable and runs horizontally across the bottom.
Radio reports are very good, widely covering any distance achieved with a team from the competition.

In Summary.:
A high quality product, subject to the restrictions in its class, but superior to many better known.
A safe bet, and excellent value - price.
RECOMMENDED.
 
Product is in production.
