I'll start with the products construction. It feels cheap but nothing has broke the 1st week of use. For $20 a unit though who cares when the other are $100 and only last a year in this environment.
Clarity - I think it is actually better then the expensive one we use, may be that chatter is eliminated so I can hear my deck crew better though. The ear piece is a heck of a lot better than I expected after reading the reviews. I didn't have a problem at all understanding the other person, never did anyone else. Crew likes them better then the old ones.
Programing - To program what freq. to use was easy. Be advised though, as stated, it doesn't use windows 8. Lucky a guy on the boat had windows7 and programing was done in a matter of minutes once we decided which freqs we were going to use.
Freq usage - This has been a touchy subject so I did a lot of research due to my work area. We have Helo ports around us along with USCG and various other agencies. All these things have certain freqs they work on so I looked up and used the business freqs and there are more than plenty to cover the 16 channels you can program into the radio. I just used 7 freqs (7 set on low power and the same 7 set on high power.) Also this radio works great for me because it will do VHF also. I can program the working VHF freq we use into the radio right along with the UHF freqs eliminated the use for two radios. If I need to tell the deck crew something I can tell them to switch to channel 8 and the client can't hear what we are saying.Read more ›
I am also a HAM operator and I can honestly say the audio quality is just as good as some of the expensive radios I have. The sound is crisp and warm. The build of the radio is solid and they have been durable. I had no problem programming the radios, but I have programmed a few radio's like this before. It's not hard but for someone who isn't familiar with radio frequencies, tones, splits etc...they may feel a little bit perplexed. As a bonus...the ear piece mics actually work very well. They aren't all that comfortable in the ear...but not bad.
I would highly recommend these radios. I would also encourage you to actually get the GMRS license. Enjoy the radios and maybe take a look at getting your HAM (Amateur Radio) license some day. Then you can use these same radio's on a repeater and talk much further (think 50-100 miles...more if the repeaters are linked!).
What was good.
- These radios have a good reception and covered a good portion of the 63 acres.
What was not so good.
- There are no instructions on how to use the software to program new frequencies.
- Fumbled with the software but was never able to reprogram the channels, just used them as they were.
- The radios stopped working one by one, so by the time 4 months had passed I was down to one working radio.
- Problems included talk switch not working and batteries stopped charging after three or four uses. (Yes I removed the plastic over the contacts)
- Purchase through Amazon and past time to be able to return.
- No local authorized dealer, have put in a complaint on BaoFeng website some where in China.
- There is a laughable warranty card in the back of the booklet, which is basically useless.
