Sooo, now that I've had two for several days, I have a few things to share. They do TX 4+ watts into a dummy load on VHF & UHF, but null on 1.25 meters using a small digital Surecom SW-33 PLUS; even though another radio in the room receives a momentary dead key. I'm still hoping it's only a limitation of the $40 power meter. The antenna is garbage with SWRs of 4.5-infinty. I refrained from further testing until I receive some 15" whips that I'll trim tune. The 701 copy is by far the worst antenna of any included with an HT. At it's lowest SWR it's reflecting 80%, which is terrible for TX and finals. No big problem there though as I test every antenna prior to using it. Only my TYT UV8000D came with antennas that can be used on VHF & UHF, with SWRs below 2:1. I discovered that buying the $2 dual or single band 15" whips (the 771 copies) on Aliexpress and trimming with a cable cutter that I can get 1.01-1.2:1 on the frequency desired to maximize TX power. IMHO Hayden, that first harmonic is negligible and way better than the Baofeng splatter boxes so many use (UV-18 being the worst yet). I think that what this radio offers for $11 is by far more than any $40 Baofeng that also needs a better antenna. The point is I'll have two HTs that TX all 4+ watts on ham bands for $30+/- plus I can RX way wide.
