Any Tone D878UV is one of my best performing radios. I needed a dual band radio which could be used on Pt. 90 frequencies in addition to amateur radio frequencies. Also wanting a radio with plenty of rx audio for use outside and in noisy locations. A few extras were the ability to have a zone for NOAA weather channels and monitoring of emergency marine 156.8, 157.050 & 157.100 coastguard channels. Radio performs well and battery life is awesome. Scanning could be a bit faster.
