I would buy this product again, but we could not control the squelch, so it became unusable.

  • By Richard from New Hampton IA USA on Friday, October 14, 2016
  • Pros: It is a nice package for the price
  • Cons: Can not control the squelch.
  • Review: It is a nice unit overall, it did transmit and receive, but we could not control the squelch, so we were not able to use it. I will have to send it for warranty work.
