It's still a pretty cool little, low-powered HT. The open source Chirp software is a HUGE improvement. Chirp is very easy to use and transfers data between different radios. I don't like the digital "stepped" audio on the radio, seems like it's either a little too soft or too loud. I mostly listen with it, but can hit area repeaters.

The battery will run down even if the radio is off. If must use a "soft" power switch. Charging time is somewhat slow. I bought a couple Nokia BL-6C batteries (made for a cell phone) from eBay cheap and it's not a problem now. Using it with one battery IS a problem.

In summary, with upgraded free software and a spare battery, the radio is fun and is working FB.
