In the box is: Radio, Dual-band Antenna, 1700 mAh Battery, Belt Clip, Stand-up Charger, Manual and fairly-useless wrist strap.
*When in Frequency Mode, the RPT button will quickly cycle through SIMPLEX, +OFFSET
-OFFSET, +REVERSE and -REVERSE to access repeaters. It can also be programmed for other functions.
** With the radio in "single display" mode, and with the Keypad, MENU and S/D buttons locked,
the end user will only be able to turn the radio on/off, change channels and talk. This
is perfect for the non-radio user. Nothing they do will get them lost in menu-land.
I own two UV6D, one the newest v2.5. I can't say enough about the radio. I haven't found any flaws in the radio yet and I don't expect to seeing I've owned the HAM ONLY version now for a year. That was my first Wouxun buy and I was skeptical to say the least. Receive sensitivity on both UHF and VHF measured by a General Dynamics R8000 was near the lowest setting of output at -130 dBm. Adjacent channel, intermod, and spurious rejections are perfect. No TX spurs to worry about. A couple birdies on RX but those can be expected in any receiver. Most with a CPU clock shift disappear. The case is robust having had my first UV6D exit my vehicle while on the visor and subsequently get run over by another vehicle behind me. Hardly a scratch occurred and I was amazed. I had an old Alinco dual band and it was run over and scattered on the road like a glass bottle. So the UV6D/V2 gets an A+ from me on every possible scenario.
fantastic order Turn-Around
I ordered a couple of these, and had them delivered in just a couple days. Fantastic service, thanks Ed!
