2 weeks agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesGreat radio at a fair price.Simple to operate and has good range. Ive had it for about two weeks and use it daily with no issues at all. On the ground I get a good signal 10 miles out. Haven’t tried it in the air yet.

4 weeks agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesGreat handheld radio!Well built, Solid feel in the hand, Switches have a clean and solid feel. Screen is easy to see in bright light situations. The battery cover is a little wonky with the connections when you reinstall the cover, watch out for the contacts, they bend easily, other than that its a good solid radio. Easy to program channels and recall entered memory channels. Good sound quality also.February 7, 2020Purchased
4 weeks agoDurability4 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesHappy with purchaseReceived and unboxed yesterday. Setting up was very easy and I managed without having to read the instructions, it was that simple.
The Unit was easy to navigate, and I like the big easy to read screen.
Turned out heavier than I thought, but only a minor issue.
As others have pointed out, there is a concern around the flimsy plastic battery box clips, and i was worried about them snapping as I fitted the case loaded with batteries. It’s a tight fit.
Once turned on, reception was clear and I was able to receive ATIS indoors at home from a few miles away. Headset reception was good, and overall, the Unit is well designed and easy to operate without fiddling and connecting adapters etc.February 6, 2020Purchased

1 month agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesLost my alternator and radios on Sunday. Radio saved my butt.Needed it first flight.
I've been having alternator problems lately and after the 3rd stint with my mechanic I thought it was resolved. I flew myself and 2 buddies to Bimini in the bahamas this weekend for some fising and purchased the radio just incase. The flight there was fine, but on the flight home I shredded my alternator belt and had to switch to the handheld radio. I will be buying a new alternator this week and I will never fly without the handheld radio again.January 29, 2020Purchased

Then I realized I had left off one small panel on battery pack when I went to install the (6) AA batteries. Once I saw that panel and installed it, everything worked fine. It was very easy to set that small panel aside and forget about it till I retraced my steps. I had already called Sporty's about the issue, so I called back and cancelled the replacement battery pack that they were sending out.
