I see this radio advertised for around $100.00.
I like my $80.00 Yaesu FT4X better.
Why is everyone so hard on the China man? Cut Mr. Chung some slack. He gives you great radios like the UV-82 that blows away Yeasu's FT3, which is an overpriced piece of "Chinese crap" that has horrible audio. I guess buying a name brand radio is worth several hundred dollars more?
Is the radio capable of transmitting and receiving on appropriate marine frequencies?
"But, if you act now, you can get 5 of the radios for the price of 1! And, we'll even throw in the Ginsu!"
"Just pay a separate fee for handling and processing."
A radio with "ditty" in the title and no code key included? Hogwash!
Wonder if it has an FCC ID tag???
I have several Yaesu HT's. A couple of Kenwood HT''s and three Baofeng's. I Do a lot of offroading in harsh areas and I purchased a GS-5B shortly after it came out and I am very happy with it. I have dropped it in the mud washed it off and it just keeps working. The antenna works better than any I received out of the box from any other manufacturer. The flashlight is silly but at this price I see it as free. Battery life on mine is great and it is nice I can charge it from a mini USB in the Jeep. The Bluetooth programing makes changes on the fly a breeze. I love mine. I use it more than any other HT I have.
