Very good and cheap HAM 70cm radio. Also Part 90 certified for business use. Useful as a Police/EMS band monitor, November 6, 2016
By W G. –
For the price, you can’t beat these. I purchased them as a cheap police/ems scanner. Monitoring time is over 24 hours on a single charge. I programmed it for the frequencies used where I worked and found that it performed as well as the much more expensive Motorola radios in use.
It appears that there is poor information on their use. Any transmitting use of this radio requires a FCC license. It’s sold as an Amateur, HAM, class radio. They are not certified for FRS/GMRS. They are, surprisingly Type 90, (licensed commercial), certified.
And, Yes, you need to program it. The frequencies pre-programmed are, almost certainly, not ones that you are authorized to use. You will need a copy of CHIRP and the correct cable.

Excellent radios, July 1, 2016
By Average Joe –
Great radios at an excellent price. Very clear and impressive distance, maybe 2 miles in the mountains. I plan to buy more.
I was impressed with the clarity and distance. Very simple to use. You won’t be disappointed.
