Perfectly satisfied with my choice.
I've used it from the house and I'm able to hit a lot of local repeaters including some 15 miles away. I've made multiple contacts (and received one lecture on how Baofeng is all things evil... whatever). I've also used it on the road. I set up repeaters down the highway and was able to make contacts just fine. I've so far only made a single simplex contact, but I keep trying.
I've found the radio very easy to learn and very easy to operate. It was also easy to program. I've used both Chirp and the Baofeng software. I prefer chirp. I did purchase a longer antenna for it, which radically changes the radio for the better, so you might want to do that as well.
As a first step into the world of amateur radio, this is a great choice. Waiting now for my Yaesu 8900R to arrive so I can install it in the Jeep while I study for my General.
This is the 2nd BF-F8HP unit I've bought from Amazon and I'm not sure why, but this one is FAR superior in EVERY way. This one came in outstanding packaging, with a FANTASTIC manual and appears to be better made than the other. I'm not sure exactly why my other unit (which is "Baofeng" only - NOT "Pofung Baofeng" as this unit is...) is so different - but this one is much nicer. I have *several* versions of the Baofeng HTs - this is the first one I could describe as a truly professional product. Extremely pleased!
I'm newly licensed so I haven't gotten around to playing with it much but just from basic testing so far the transmit audio sounds nice and clear. Speaker quality is not bad, what can you expect from an HT. It definitely gets loud if you turn it up, but also sounds worse once you get towards max volume.
The larger battery that comes with it is nice, it'll work as a backup to my extended battery (I bought an extra for the BF-F8, so now I have one for both my radios.) One thing I will say about the extended battery on the BF-F8 is the fit is tighter than on the original, you have to give it some effort to get it the battery to connect but once it's in there is no functionality issues, you can remove and re-connect with no issues.
I'm really happy with this purchase, I did a lot of bouncing around between all the various UV5R variants and I'm glad I went with this one. The quality from BTech radios seems pretty good, my guess is they're Baofeng radios with better overall quality control and customer service? At any rate, if you're thinking about which Baofeng to get just go with this one. The only other one I would consider at this point is the UV-5X3 tri band version, again another BTech radio, if you're looking for that added functionality.
