not mil spec good radio
Time owned: more than 12 months
I got my 528 from a friend but it was DOA .
replaced the memory lithium battery, number pad was dirty inside and out , it
was hardly making contact , had to push hard like an old remote control ,
drilled holes in the front to use small zip ties to keep the radio from
splitting in 2, the screw lugs were broken and didn't hold the radio together.
old brittle plastic and delicate! intermittent connection through the dc input. I have a cellphone screen protector on the screen. had to replace the tx and f TACT contact switches they were very dirty inside. standard company
went crazy spilling glue all over affecting everything(including my 558)
messing up the TACT's .after all that it works great ,finally. the receiver is
great, no intermod and sensitive, transmitter is a good performer and runs
sorry I have to give it a 2 as you see I had to
service it a lot and luckily I'm handy but it was work! and I couldn't find
anybody do this work!
and finally this radio is NOT MIL SPEC!!!!
not even close!
Product is not in production.
