    The VX-8R is a lot of radio in a small package. I'm a new ham too. I bought the radio before I even had my license. The only thing I really don't care for with it is some of the functions require both hands, for example, volume control. But, it is a good radio. I've had mine for a year and no problems with it.

    It's fantastic! I'm fairly new to Amateur Radio too, having passed my licence here in the UK last summer. I bought a VX-8E and ALL the extras (including a better antenna) and have had REALLY good results with it. I give it 10 out of 10

    Excellent little radio, the VX-8R. With optional GPS unit you won't need to take any other gadgets on your fishing trips (except maybe a battery changer...)
