A solid radio with great performance
I wanted a handheld that my wife and I could use during our hikes and kayaking. This radio is submersible and its front panel is relatively easy to use. The 5W power output is a huge plus as we use our radios in simplex mode almost all of the time. Our purpose with these radios is to be able to communicate with each other primarily if something should go wrong and we are separated during one of outdoor adventures.

The radio was listed as simple and lacking features; I disagree. This thing has 2000 memories! How many do you actually need? It has many other capabilities as well.

This a full 5W output radio that is submersible and a Yaesu design for 75 bucks new, what the heck could go wrong with that?
