When someone gets a chance to try one out, please comment here so we can get an idea of how well they perform. I haven’t used any of them personally.
In addition to being marketed for amateur radio user, I think it’s interesting that the radio is both Part 90 (commercial/public safety) and Part 95 certified (MURS/GMRS). It appears to share its Part 90 grant with Anytone’s AT-3318UV-A/E.
Are the features worth the price? What are your thoughts?
