Handheld for a glider
This radio is used in/on/and around a glider. It is small, light and easily connects to a shoulder strap or an electric cart. Wish it had a bit better squelchcontrol, but for the price cannot be beat!!

Really Nice Handheld
I purchased this as a backup for my flight bag since I fly primarily into controlled airports. After purchase I fully charged the radio and let it sit in my bag for 5 weeks with minimal use (1 hour total) to see if the battery would hold a charge just sitting. Happily I pulled it out after the test period and used it for about an hour with no issues. The battery never died during this hour, so who knows, maybe it would have gone much longer. My test was to simply ensure it would be available for an unexpected radio failure. I have also used this a couple times when I was just hanging out at the hangar, which was nice.
The headset adapter is easily installed without tools by using the included “extended” screws.
Programming the pre-set channels is not necessarily intuitive, but just read the manual for five minutes and it walks you through it without issue.
Sitting in my house I have picked up transmissions from airplanes 9-10 nm away so the range seems good as well.
