Comments:

Visually very like some mobile phones with a smooth finish which looks good quality. Voice audio is higher pitched compared with the Multicom pro (See Review).

Off air receive sensitivity tests the receive quality is practically the same.

Off air transmit power is around the same level as the majority of PMR446 radios
