    Awesome little radio! It came in a nice box, no damage from delivery. The package came with the charger, wall adapter, belt clip, battery, antenna and the radio itself. No lanyard. The radio does have USB-C which was added in a clever way. 2 of the pins from the standard battery type were removed and replaced with an LED indicator that shows red when charging and green when fully charged, as well as the USB-C port. The speaker is very loud and has super clear sound. Playing music in FM radio mode sounds amazing, you can hear the volume and quality in this video i made: Bluetooth and GPS work as expected, but you will need to be outside to get a GPS signal. For some reason Bluetooth and GPS do NOT work at the same time. If you enable one in the menu, the other is disabled. This could cause confusion if you enable Bluetooth, the left/arrows to access the GPS menu do nothing. All bands are working, and you can even listen to the FM radio waiting for an Airband signal. When a signal arrives, the radio automatically switches away from the FM and then back, very cool. Airband is listen ONLY, if you try to use the PTT button you will just get busy tones from the speaker. Since the radio is basically the Radtel RT-490 / Socotran 8629 / JJCC 8629 in a new more modern looking case with the new USB-C battery, it is possible to use the Radtel programming software and also the app (not made by them, probably JJCC, but it's the only public links i have found). If you have a PC or an Android phone, you can download the software from here: "Radtel RT490 6 Band Radio Bluetooth APP Download (for Andriod)" "Radtel RT-490 6 Bands Radio Software" ("seller" linked here some software in one of the questions, the same software as above, but only in Chinese so don't bother) The programming cable is the "K" style Baofeng, my cable is on the way, haven't tested it yet.

    Very interesting civilian small-sized radio station (set - one piece). The manual is very superficial. On the site Radtel downloaded the service program, the driver of the cable programming via USB from the PC, the configuration file of the radio for the service program, the application for Android for programming from the smartphone via Bluetooth. GPS is available on board. Also downloaded the program Chirp. Further with the help of the latter we expand the boundaries of the subbands of the radio station to a continuous overlap on frequency (108...520 MHz!!!), then the service program fill the frequencies of communication channels (memorizes up to 256 channels!) and make a pen initial menu setting (53 in the future it will be possible to edit either from the device, or from a smartphone) - and get a very interesting transceiver in a very compact and quite nice performance. I am very happy with the purchase.

    ... It came quickly and without damage because of the good packaging!!! I've tried it and it's doing pretty well! ...the battery's definitely not what it promises... and the power where I imagined it... just over 5 watts... ..the receiver's pretty good in areas with lots of frequencies, and I like that. ..the sound of the speaker loud but at the end it distorts the voice... ..the screen's convenient and legible enough for the old age!! ..doesn't have the restraint strap in the box. I think it's a fair market at 70 euros. .. Software identical to the original... of Ra....4....

    This radio has a quality feel to it. Screen is excellent. Android software is not for the beginner and rather confusing and the provided manual is very small print but clear. Sound quality is outstanding. GPS cannot be activated while Bluetooth is active but BT is only used while programming the radio so not a big deal. Supplied antenna clearly states it's for UHF only so I'd suggest buying an aftermarket antenna if you plan to transmit on 2m. Overall it's a very impressive radio. Definitely easy to recommend!

    I really like this litle radio. Looks and feels good, the sound quality is nice, and it runs a very long time on the battery. I downloaded the software suggested in another review and had no problem programming the radio from it. I wish it was Chirp compatible because I had to enter all those channels again for this radio, but at least it wasn't difficult. Haven't tried bluetooth programming yet. My Baofeng UV-82R programming cable worked with this radio. I am glad I purchased this. I can see using it quite a lot.

    Recieved item today, tested and 100percent working. still looking for the android app for it. Very satisfied with this radio. But your courier in the Philippines, Ninja Van is the worst, slowest with very bad tracking service. Hope you find another partner courier here. Thank you Baggood.

    fast nine days delivery to UK. great radio works well, original antenna is rubbish but with an aftermarket antenna works really well. only downside is Bluetooth is useless it never connects. however programming with CHIRP works well & you can extend to give full TX coverage from 108-535mhz with no gaps. a tip you have to use the legacy version of CHIRP. programming by hand is possible but takes forever. getting good reports on my signal & audio levels. at £58.76 i paid for it, it was a bragin
