Battery Life: Seems like it gets around 12 hours of active standby. Meaning it's receiving signals and playing received audio. This turns the backlight of the color LCD on. The LCD itself is always on, even if the backlight isn't. It looks like a DSTN display so it won't be as power hungry and TFT or IPS.

Rubber Duck: Very impressive performance with this duck. Its longer than most ducks, and also seems to be well engineered for TX and RX. It seems miles better than even the nearly respectable duck that came with the Baofeng GT-3 and on par or maybe better than a Yaesu or Kenwood. Maybe close to something like the 14" Diamond 77CA variant but not as good. Say 75 percent there.

Programming: Now that I understand how it works, it's actually very easy to program by hand. Some of the menu's are abbreviated, and others that are short enough in title are more obvious. Go to VFO mode, set your frequency, offset frequency and direction by hand, what ever squelch you want, Tone or DCS, then go to the menu save menu, set your memory point number, done... Then go to MR and set the name, the name sets and you don't have to re-save.. Setting the name is weird. On the DTMF keypad there are no letters. So you have to use the menu up and down buttons or the encoder. Move the encoder one way and it rotates through the upper case letter, characters, lower case, then numbers. There is also a blank space you MUST use if you want a space in your channel name. Its a PAIN. But at least it works. On the Baofeng, you can't set a channel name on the radio, you have to use a computer. I was able to program this radio by downloading the programming software from some random web site and using the prolific chipset knockoff USB cable that I originally got for my Baofeng UV-5RA.

Don't worry about the 'green buttons'! My wife and I are both hams and together we have 3 of these and they are excellent, there is one firmware version that had a squelch / clipping issue that some are talking about, but Wouxun is standing behind them. I have been a Wouxun fan for a couple of years and when they announced this model I had to have one - I pre-ordered one from the only dealer I could find accepting pre-orders, They shipped it in a couple of months, but about a month before ANYONE else was shipping them, I called RTSystems and begged them to release programming software and they did in a couple of weeks. This one is software version 1.01 and the A/B and EXIT buttons are black. My wife liked it so much that I decided to order a second on for her - it came with black buttons and is firmware version 1.02 - works perfectly as well. Then a couple of weeks ago I decided to replace the HT I keep in my vehicle with one of these, I ordered it from the dealer the others from, he told me that they now came with the 2600mAh battery, when it came it was version 1.03 (w/ green buttons) and after programming I noticed immediately the clipping issue - a signal with strong deviation would cut out momentarily about every syllable. I sat it aside and figured it was just a backup unit anyways. a week ago I was talking to the dealer about another radio and mentioned this one, he asked if it was version 1.03, when I told him yes, he immediately gave me a RMA and said Wouxun is aware of an issue with that version and is standing behind them. The new one is version 1.05 (w/ green buttons) and works perfectly. I wanted to share my experience with these units - as near as I can tell, ONLY version 1.01 and some of version 1.02 had 'black buttons', and version 1.01 and 1.02 work fine. BTW, to check your version, hold down the '3' key while turning the radio on. Hope this helps someone out there - W2GTX

Ive bought two now, so far so good. RT systems is the way to go, as far as programming. My only complaint is that the opening software doesn't work and frankly, it would not kill the manufacture to add a working programming cable for a 1000 channel radio. Now you might say why would you need a thousand channels on a handy talkie? So my response to you is that I have set the radio up using travel plus with all the routes and I drive in the western United States going up into Washington, Oregon up into Nevada and everywhere from about San Francisco north. I also have a mobile radio in my car and the channel list all set up about the same with the talkies so I can know what channels are where. It makes life alot easier to use the radio. As far as length of transmission signal quality excetera I'm relying on other people to tell me that my signal doesn't sound too bad. I've made a few QSO's in the area. Again my only real complaint is that there is no easy way to open the radio so I can scan some of the local public service bands. As far as the value related to the pricing, really there is no compariso. Any other handy talkie radio that is made by one of the big manufacturers is going to cost several times what I paid for the two radios. I don't feel guilty about not buying Japanese or not buy American in this particular case. hopefully the affordability of these radios will spur a new generation of ham radio enthusiasts, that's what I would like to see anyways.

I love mine, but you folks should be aware that there are TWO different versions of this radio available, and BOTH of them are 2014 models.

The first model (which started shipping about four months ago), can easily be identified since it can only support channel band step sizes down to 5 kHz. The latest model (which started shipping about one month ago), supports the smaller 2.5 kHz step sizes (which is really needed for many commercial users). Those earlier (V1) models may be what some of you are having issues with.

With my 2.5 kHz band-step UV-8D (V2 ?) model and the included 2600 mAh extended battery I got at my local Mesa, AZ dealer, this unit can last for days with the color display left on full time. I don't know if Wouxun fixed anything else (regarding some of the complaints in other reviews), but my radio doesn't seem to have those issues. Highly recommended radio (plus got mine fully programmed with 400+ memories at the same dealer).
