My first contact was from my back garden straight into GB3DY a 70cm repeater 40 miles way, using the supplied aerial, very impressive!
It's so easy to set up and enter memories complete with repeater offsets, CTCSS and alpha numeric display.
I've never had a handheld that is so easy to program.
There are 200 memories, which should be enough for anyone I would think!
The build quality is excellent. It has a very solid feel to it with no creaking from plastic joints.
The buttons are a good size for big fingers and thumbs too!
The RX audio from the internal speaker is superb.
It does exactly as it says on the tin with no messing or unnecessary programs that one will never use.
Having tried and tested several other handhelds including the Yaesu VX-7 and FT 60. The Alinco wins hands down. It's even better and easier to use than my old trusted Kenwood TH-F7E which I sold a couple of years ago.
This radio has replaced my rather complicated Icom IC-E92D D-Star handheld. Who needs a radio that constantly requires updating by computer to cope with the digital mode updates? D-Star isn't as good as it's cracked up to be anyway, as I have found out!
Have no doubts, this is a very good down to earth simple handheld that should give good service for many years to come.
My thanks go to Nevada Radio UK for their excellent, friendly and very swift service!
