Great radio so far. I have gone through 1 set of batteries, and definitely plan on getting an ac/dc charger for it. My use with it to this point has only been ground use. I have not had a chance to take it in the air yet. This is my first hand held radio, so I dont have anything to compare it to. That being said, I would recommend and buy this one again.
