Very few people complain about Yaesu, Icom, or Kenwood HTs. I bought a couple Baofengs at first, but the Yaesus I have far outshine the Baofengs in all measurable ways. My suggestion, if anyone cares, is to save your money and buy something decent. You can get an FT70 for $150 and have far more capability than any Baofeng. And no one needs a 15 watt HT.
