Odporučam, pomer výbava, cena a kvalita! Postačuje aj varianta z tužkovimi bateriami, ak ju použivate nepravidelne ako dopnok do eroplanu. To ze obsahuje v cene a baleni redukciu pripojenia k GA sluchadlam a CL adapter do auta je super. Určite lepšia ako ICOM. Ak ju budete pouzivat denne odporučam s dobijatelnou bateriou.
Špičková stanička, jednoduchá, prehľadná, výkonná, spracovanie na vysokej úrovni, čo u tohoto výrobcu neprekvapí. Maximálna spokojnosť.
