The best analog HT ever produced!

Daniel Kondlatsch

Undoubtedly the best analog HT that was ever produced, it pioneered a lot, APRS, barometric sensor, GPS, and a lot of other things.
The version I have is the North American version, which is quad band, as it transmits at 50, 144, 220 and 430MHz, and the reception sensitivity is spectacular!
Without a doubt I recommend the radio, it is a pity that it has been discontinued, as it could very well be in place of the VX-6 which is still being produced and does not even come close to its settings.
If you're looking for an analog HT and a VX-8D is available, get it and you'll no doubt be very satisfied.
