Another Great Kenwood product
The physical design just makes sense. Originally, I didn't think I'd like the split "head" and "working guts" design ethic, but after using it for a while, that hesitation is gone. It just flat works. Nice to have just the display out where you can see it while the noisy/hot bits hide out of the way somewhere. This design also shortens the RF feed distance, which at UHF frequencies with small diameter cables can be a noticeable improvement in weak-signal conditions.
But the real reason I give this critter a solid "5" is this: It. Just. Works. It's solid in every way and does not suffer from the "Nintendo" design ethic that other dual-banders seem to have. The menus are thoughtfully done, and the stuff you need to have right at your fingertips have "shortcuts" built right in. After an hour or two, it becomes intuitive. You can concentrate on your QSOs without the radio interface getting in the way.
The built-in TNC does APRS without any external hardware, reporting position, speed, heading, altitude, etc. GPS acquisition times from a cold-start are minimal too. And it has a position de-resolution feature that alters your displayed position by 1, 2, 3 or even 4 decimal places, so your *general* location can be sent without worrying about ex-wives tracking you down to your doorstep. (I like that. heheheh).
tl-dr: This is a very nice radio. Excellent audio quality, great range and good power output, and it's fairly tolerant of supply variations, and native APRS makes this an excellent choice for both mobile and base use. If you can part with 6 bills, it's a heck of a radio that wont let you down and you won't outgrow it.
