Radio was everything I expected it to be. Customer service @ pilot mall exceptional. Shipper on this item was UPS. Their service not so much.

Excellent, Everything I expected.

Good, sturdy handheld

I have not used this radio in the air but on the ground it picked up signal well. It was not great at long distance signals but I did not expect it to because it is a handheld. I would want to have an external antenna connection in the plane for best reception but as a backup it is great.

FTA 550L

It has a high noise level I am not used to. I am not sure why the station I desire to connect with always say “busy.” I have had no communications on it yet. I have used ham radio equipment most of my adult life but it was not like this. Bill Hossler
