    Well all I can say is I sold my IC-51A+ after I got my FT3D, and if you pull the lower right bottom rubber plug off it sounds as good as my Kenwood 74A

    Yeah, the audio is nice and loud on the FT-5 and there are some settings to adjust the audio pitch now to be flat, emphasize the treble, or emphasize the bass.

    That's good to hear. I sold my FT3 due to the sound was so harsh.

    The FT5 is a great radio! I really like it and today, RT Systems has the programming software on their website. The cord for the Ft3 is the same one and works on the FT5 so you can just download the software. I’m all programmed up! W7PEZ

    GMRS certified radios are required for GMRS operation.
    FRS certified radios are required for FRS operation.
    MURS certified radios are required for MURS operation.
    A Part 90 certified radio is required for commercial use.

    I don't really see the point in this modification.
