Easy installation and works very well since 3 months. Never been so loud and clear for the other radio station. Ive connected 2 more speakers to the audio output without any problem. Im not sure if the mike connection will last for years of usage, its a telephone type connector.

So far so good. This is being used as a base station for operations and price and value are good. I would of liked to see more detail in the description or spec to determine the right adapters for hooking up to the ground power and antennae.

When i first got this radio it would let me use 8.33 spacing then in the last week all im able to do is use 25 kHz spacing. Dont know how that happened but flightline says they dont know how to remedy this so im buying an icom 120 which has both 8.33 and 25 spacing
