Recently purchased this radio. Comes with a Basic Manual but recommend downloading the Full Manual from ICOM. Also the radios VOX was set to transmit automatically over the air even if I was just talking with a passenger using the intercom. Heard hot mike several times. The Full Manual shows the steps on setting VOX to off.

A great radio that is easy to use. I was pleasantly surprised to find the charger is multi-voltage as I will be using the radio in 110V and 240V countries. It was also a surprise to find a separate battery pack for AA batteries included.
