The other issue that should be addressed, is that while it is "legal" to listen on any of the frequencies covered by these transceivers, using them to transmit outside the designated 420MHz-450MHz and 144MHz-148MHz amateur bands, could be the same as or worse than operating without a license, is illegal and could result in forfeiture of equipment, fines and even imprisonment. Frequencies from 400MHz to 420Hz are reserved for government use only. All bands can be scanned for active radio signals automatically. Therefore, anyone anticipating using these dual band transceivers for anything other than listening should buy themselves a copy of The ARRL Ham Radio License Manual as a study guide for license qualification. Then obtain a license and operate these units in accordance with FCC rules. Their range and performance are worth the trouble.
As a formerly FCC licensed broadcast engineer, who spent six years in the US Military maintaining radar and communications equipment, my first impression of these amateur radio transceivers is that they're built, feel and look like military or professional equipment. Some minor assembly is required. The antenna comes detached and simply screws onto the connector on top of the unit. Attaching the included belt-clip requires a small Philips-head screwdriver. An included wrist loop threads through a metal tab. Next to the antenna there is also a built-in flashlight and a volume-control/on/off switch that operates solidly and smoothly. Each transceiver comes with a charging base, powered by a plug-in transformer that produces 10-volts. The base can charge the battery whether or not it's attached to the transceiver. Replacement batteries from Baofeng are available through Amazon for a reasonable price. A plug-in headset is also included for those who would prefer more privacy with their communications than having them coming from a speaker.
The build-in speaker appears to be only about 1-inch in diameter and is protected by a perforated plastic grille above the keyboard, yet the sound from that speaker is remarkably clear and good. These transceivers will scan and tune into both the foreign and American FM broadcast radio bands. I found listening to local FM radio stations to be a more pleasant experience than I would have expected from such a small device and as good as some expensive Bluetooth speakers that I have reviewed.
In the default settings, a transmission is initiated by a push-to-talk button on the transceiver, but among the numerous menu selections there is a VOX (voice operated transmit) setting that allows hands-free operation with the included headset. There are also menu selections for privacy codes so only you and someone with matching settings on their Beofeng transceiver will be able to hear each other. Licensed amateurs can dramatically improve the range of these transceivers by using amateur radio repeaters, which is another advantage of being a licensed user. For the price, these transceivers have remarkable amount of sophistication, options and power, which require more knowledge to use than a simple low-power walkie talkie. After querying me regarding my qualifications to review sophisticated communications equipment, the seller provided me with samples in exchange for an honest review, which you have just read.
It feels cheap like a kids toy. I have other name brand radios and this doesn't even come close to the build quality of even a $100 radio from Yaesu, Alinco, or Icom. Spend a little more and get yourself a better built radio that will last.
I have a couple and so far no problems with either one. This model comes with a better updated antenna vs the older ones which were notoriously terrible. As with most handhelds they are a pain to program on the radio itself, get the programing cable and Chirp software and save yourself a pile of time.
