I've had the VX-1R for one year and it has served me well. Like many other amateur radio operators, I thought the audio of this handie was amazing for such a small package. You can listen to ham repeaters 30+ miles away, listen to broadcasts. You may want to talk on the 2m/70cm repeaters with aftermarket antennas with gain. Quick recharge, battery holding amazingly, discreet enough to take it to work, or on bike rides with attached headphones. I will never part with this great little piece of technology. Do you want POWER? Don't buy the VX-1R. Reported pronlems include locking while scanning and disconnecting from battery when being placed on a hard surface. None of this have ever occured to my handie, though.
