OK but not a UK supported radio
on 24 September 2013
I purchased the handheld as a second set, as i already own a Yaesu VX7R. My overall impression was goo,d but not a patch on the VX7R for ease of use or simple programming. The sensitivity was good but programming is not easy, in fact quite complex for such a small radio, the instructions needed to be followed exactly otherwise you have to clear the memory location if you make a mistake and start again which was very frustrating. When I unpacked the radio I found the charger power supply had an American 2pin plug, no real problem if an adaptor had been supplied, but wasn't, I found an adaptor and continued to charge the radio battery only to find it failed afer an hour, the LED on the charger itself went out, where as it should be either Red or Green depending on its state of charge, this leaves you not knowing what is happening. Unfortunately Amazon cannot replace the charger so it has all had to be returned for a refund, disappointing as the radio itself was OK for the money.
I am thinking of reordering another unit to give it a second chance.
