Fun little test Lewis, radio is a little too small for my massive hands but would be good for the missus and the kids, I need to get them all licensed, starting with the missus, my kids love playing with PMR radios and I often joke there is more activity on PMR than any other band, I probably do more on PMR ha ha oh well, thanks for sharing and looking forward to more videos from you.

Wow you’re beautiful

Hamilton Caven-Lewis says:

Legend…. my folks live a few miles below GB3CR can see it from their house….. & catching Llandudno repeater on it…. class Lewis!!

humaxf1 says:

72 miles ain’t bad for a compromise of a very stubby aerial. Is the display frequency only or can you name the channels?

What do u want says:

fred in shed video shows it having lots of interference at 3/4 mile!! so how do you get 
70 plus miles?????

Antonio Parreira says:

Very good,

Cory Robinson says:

I love your review mate. I live here in Michigan and I need this radio I ride motorcycle and would be a good radio to pick up for communication instead of getting a motorcycle radio that costs way more than what it’s worth. Could you please link me to buy this exact model here in the USA? Cheers Cory

Jude May says:

Hi would i be able to have a conversation at 30 miles with this radio then?

Andy Wragg says:

Great results Lewis. Mine won’t be here till next week but I’ve got a couple of projects to finish in the garage to keep me busy. 73s.

Chris Thomas says:

Hi Firstly can I say I love your channel and look forward to your videos being uploaded, I noticed your frequency was on 2m but looked at the spec and the data sheet sheet its 400 to 446 radio so is the data sheet incorrect, ps when are we going to see Mr one nine a lady breaker again that video is hysterical and your buddy there is a star. Cheers Chris MW0HAC

Robert Young says:

Edison Santos says:

What is the average range in this Walkie talkie when not on high ground? For instance a small city. Thanks
