I just purchased one of these to put in my car. I've had a Baofeng handheld connected to a mag mount but thought this could be mounted a little more neatly. I'm not really a VHF/UHF repeater guy so I didn't want to spend the cash for a "nice" mobile rig. I actually used my Baofeng more to monitor some local parks and arboretums than communication. Since this covers the same frequency range I figured I could program in those frequencies (I did and it works fine). I received it today and "installed" it. The installation consisted of connecting the antenna and plugging in the 12VDC power connector (cigarette lighter type with fuse). I have put it in place under the dash of my car temporarily using a heavy duty Velcro-type fastener. (This radio is very small and fairly light so the fastener had no issues holding it securely.) When I'm comfortable with the position I'll probably go with a more permanent, screwed in attachment. I may or may not do anything about the power connection. Like many Chinese radios the manual needs a lot of work but Miklor has clear instructions for programming. I programmed in a couple of local repeaters, the process was pretty easy and was done from the mic. A quick test confirmed I was reaching both repeaters. With the car started I could detect no noise from the ignition system or onboard computers and received audio was very clear. The built-in speaker is plenty loud as well which is good since there is no jack for an external speaker. The display is quite bright and easy to read. If it holds up as well as the Baofeng HTs I have it should be a great little rig for my purposes. I couldn't find a decent-looking programming cable online so I ordered a USB to serial CP2102 unit and I'll build my own. That should be done by the end of the week.
