5.0 Big Radio.. Little Package
Review 79 by : KB1DIG FN43ne, Steven W. Merrill, Dover, NH, USA 17-Sep-2003
Every Rig has good -v- bad points. We find our VX-5R's have far less bad points!! My Wife,Kim, KB1GTR, and I are both Hams so, "2" of these HT's at this QTH. 6-Meters was great fun at the 2002 Dayton Hamvention when all the other VHF-bands were clogged with traffic. It's a great Em-Comm rig too! We used these for 2-Meters at Ground Zero after 9/11 at the NYC/WTC. Our VX-5R's surved very well under some of the poorest adverse RF conditions!! Comet make a very nice high gain 1/4-wave rat-tail antenna..SMA24 This and a Yaesu speaker-mic. Very helpfull additions for a good little HT!
Pros: Built to last
Cons: Look for a better antenna..
Time owned: Over two years - Price: New..what ever the price was at HRO, at the time??

4.0 Excellent!

After the modification, this little rig, become a very powerfull instrument for receiving and txing. The battery works for 15 or more hours without saying anything, the rig has a good stability and a good sensitivity.
Time owned: Less than one year - Price: 380 US $ NEW
