Pass.   Time owned: more than 12 months
Bought a couple of these right from HYS to try them out. Wouldn't recommend them. The mic/speaker jack broke on one of them within a month, the antenna covering started to split on the other. They have some firmware issues, too. Radio will default to the first memory channel when you power it on... but... it shows the last channel you were using when you powered it off. The squelch sometimes does not open correctly, was having this problem when I let my brother borrow one during Dayton. Switched radios shortly thereafter. The TX audio is mediocre. Fairly muffled. The batteries don't seem to hold a charge after a few months, either. There are other manufacturers making better radios for the same (or lower) price. 
Product is in production.
