Super portable analog 2M/440  Time owned: 3 to 6 months
Positives are size. Just a great portability. You can have it as a base and then just take it into the car as a mobile. Receive audio is outstanding. Programming was a breeze with chirp. Get great TX audio reports. $90 with programming cable.

The VFO is flaky. It skips, goes backwards, and so forth. However, you can move the freq or channel using the mic. Owner's manual is horrible. A very bad Chinese to English translation. Chirp bypasses most of what you need to know in the manual.

Saw this for the first time at Field Day. Fell in love with it then. Let's stop mocking the Chinese. Not the greatest quality, but a newer ham can get on the air with about $150 buying one of these and a Diamond base antenna. For $200, he can have this radio, a base and mobile antenna. You can't beat that.
