Customer Comment

Service rating : Excellent informed staff who were a great help in selecting the best option for my secondary 8.33 tranceiver. Delivery was extremely prompt and the handheld is ideal. Excellent screen and ability to save frequencies in a logical manner. Quality of case and buttons is excellent and well inline with direct competitors. Only the way the antenna mounts is open to improvement but security of the antenna should not be an issue. Im very pleased with the product and the price. Id recommend this unit as ideal for recreational GA flying.
Product : Excellent quality and price point.
