    Nice unit but? Review by oldtimer1942
    The Baofeng 997-S is an excellent radio for the price however there are a couple of drawbacks. You can't turn the volume right down and the optional accessories are not clearly identified (ie: no model numbers) and vehicle power (battery eliminator) is simply not available. (Posted on 10/1/14)
    Great System Review by Larry

    My First Radio Review by Thomas
    I have had my Tech license as long as I have had this radio. About Two months now.
    I have used this radio in Florida and NY. I am totally shocked how far away from the repeater I am able to use this radio and how clear everyone says this radio is.
    Awesome Radio (Posted on 7/25/14)
