  1. First HT and happy with it! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Aug 2018

    As a newly licensed ham with a backpack set from 'Nam, this is my first ham radio, and it's going great. I'm able to reach plenty of repeaters near me (Long Island, NY), and the 6m capability is great for using with my prc-77 at reenacting events. I'm shocked with the range of this HT and how long the battery lasts. It's easy enough to program without software; I don't even really program it for repeaters- you can just use the dual channel setting to dial in repeaters on the fly. I totally forgot this thing had weather band in the 160's; that came in quite handy last weekend at a camping trip in Massachusetts. I'm very glad I made this purchase and I'd most certainly recommend this handheld to anyone looking to get into ham radio on a budget, especially if you want/need 6m. Hope this info helped!

  2. I worked 6 states with this HT yesterday 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Jun 2018

    I worked 6 states with this HT yesterday. I bought a 6 meter TV twinlead roll up jpole for this radio from ebay. I use this HT while camping. Don't expect great performance on 6 without a counterpoise. I made a trailing wire counterpoise, and now the radio works ok with a rubber duckie. I also made a vertical dipole with 50 inches from a tape measure, 50 inches of wire, a bnc cable and a piece of 1/2 inch PVC as a handle. This antenna is quick to deploy and efficient. This radio is so much better than the converted Motorola low band HT that I had. The receiver seems much better than my earlier Woxun, sensitivity and signal rejection are good. The mechanical build quality is quite good also. Buy one of these. The opportunity to work DX on a HT is worth the short money. AB1MI

  5. Well built and rugged HT !!! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Feb 2018

    This is my first non Icom HT. I took a chance on it since I wanted 6 meters.
    I am quite impressed with the quality and ruggedness. You can't beat it for the price either.
    I am even more impressed with MTC. First purchase from them. Fast shipping and zero problem. I have already placed a second order for a few accessories.

  6. Great Way to get into 6 Meter!! 5 Star Review

  7. Pleasantly surprised... 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 9th Nov 2015

    I recently built a 6m repeater and I needed an HT for monitoring and testing it. I found this one and ordered it knowing full well it was a “Chinese Hand Held” and probably not up to snuff as far as Yaesu or Kenwood.

    When it arrived it wasn't too difficult to program it with the software on this website. It worked, and I was happy... It's pretty simple, which made me happy. It's easy to use, which makes my wife happy.

    But the real surprise came when I tried it on some of the other 2m repeaters around our county. I could hit (and talk on) repeaters I couldn't even hear on my Yaesu, Icom and Baofeng HT's!

    The 6m range is fair. The 2m range was a pleasant surprise. I have had it on for several days, and still haven't charged it – then it hit the end of the string 3 days in – with intermittent use. THAT is good battery life! 3 days between charges with intermittent use isn't bad at all...

    I like the smart charger cradle, it's handy in the shack. Not too big. Not too small.

    It brings up my 6m repeater from miles away...

    Definitely worth what I paid for it – and more... I would buy one again in a heartbeat.

  8. It is a fine Radio! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Apr 2015

    The Radio works fine. I find that the manual tales a little to understand due to the difference in terminology. Once that was worked out everything went fine.

  9. GreatRadiio Works Fine Business for me 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Feb 2015

    I knew this radio existed as I had talked to a user of it and put my hands on it. Just never had saw one locally or at Hamfests. It has not been carried by the dealers here that sell the Wouxons and Baofengs. I have an earlier KG-UV2D VHF/UHF that has been a fine radio. The KG-UV5D makes a little over 5 watts on both bands with tx deviation and rx sensitivity as specified. Programming was no issue using Wouxon or Chirp. First programming was via keypad and was no problem whatsoever. Easily field programmable.
    Very good transaction with Main Trading Company. Packed very well and arrived a day earlier than expected. Great folks to do business with. Highly recommended!!

    Posted by on 20th Jan 2015

    this is my first HT, so i can not compare it to another, but i can say this. I am very satisfied and proud of it.
    have made several contacts on 2 meter and waiting for our local club to get our 6 meter repeater going.
    it has the features and at a price i was looking for,
    thank you MTC. the programming cable and software makes it so easy to set up and get going
