Great Bargain  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I bought two UV5R's and two of the 7 1/2 inch antennas. I also bought the programming cable with disk. The disk was worthless. The radios are great dual band HT's. I jerry rigged one of the UV5R's up to my outside 2 meter antenna and it received just as well as my Yaesu 2800. I checked the VSWR on both bands and it was less than 1.5:1. I had no problem bringing up distant repeaters and I just barely made it simplex to a fellow ham 17 miles away. The XYL is also a ham and the UV5R's are going to come in really handy. I'm considering buying two more for spares. At $32 each, they are disposable. 
Product is in production.
