Keep the manual handy. Good radio, a bit user hostile.

Great radio, easy to use, easy to see on the trail.

Excellent Radio. Dual band comes in handy. Great scanner function as well. Definitely recommended radio.

Even with the small quirks, I'd still buy another one.

When we do right, no one remembers. When we do wrong, no one forgets.

If you are like me, I like to bring all of my hobbies into one. I am a ham radio operator and love the outdoors and playing around with my jeep. This is a great radio if you don't mind using only one vfo at a time. This is a VHF and UHF radio with 50 watts of power on VHF. I have the radio set up with a remote mount. I have the radio face unit on a suction cup mount on the windshield and the body of the radio mounted under my seat. This works out great for the limited space in a jeep.

Well built, simple to program but the only con is I get intermod in areas with a lot of commercial VHF/UHF traffic.

my dad bought this for me to put in my first jeep and i have since moved it twice to other vehicles and now it resides in my current jeep very easy to install and operate once you get the basics down. it has plenty of power to get out to other radios even when cellphones dont work which is great the speaker though small and not very loud is very clear so if you can hear it you can understand people if they are talking clearly

This is a great product and can talk to almost anyone. It is a small footprint with a removable head for easy installation.

The FT7800 is a great dual band rig for those wanting a single VFO radio. Excellent Audio, great receiver, and at the time, a good price.

Can be programmed with CHIRP, too.

I bought the Ham radio because my club members are purchasing them and we found out that its a much better way of communicating. We have thousands of trails here in the Desert, but there're out in the middle of nowwhere and it comes in handy when you have a radio where you can communicate with someone who is 50, 60 or 100 miles away.

Solid unit, pretty much requires a manual though, and I'm quite mechanically/tech savvy.
