Hi John, perfectly serviceable entry level radio that will do everything you need out of the box. Just remember to bin the mic as the stock one is garbage, put a power mic on it and it will serve you well. 73s Steve.

Good radio, I have two of them. But both of them have developed the standard fault of the channel selector skipping channels. Consider getting 7900 or AT5555N. They don't cost a lot more and are better in many ways, for example a clarifier which doesn't move in notches and cut out the audio with every adjustment.

I've got a 6900n and a cre8900 both good radios happy I bought the 6900, the cre has a hyperactive signal meter so have to roll the RF gain back slightly but yeah I like both... I would like a 9900 but do many reports about the heat sink getting ridiculously hot
