If you want the most signal range and clarity out of your radio. An aftermarket antenna is a must. The factory antenna on the BCH-220 and BCH-270 is pretty good, But it is still a rubber duck.  If you really want to get the maximum range you need to get a high quality whip antenna

I have the BCH-270 and it’s a GREAT radio. I have an extra battery and lots of accessories including the programming cable. But the programming software only works on Windows 7. I haven’t been able to figure out if it’s possible to use the cable with a 3rd party software like CHIRP because I don’t know which similar radio type to select for connecting. Any idea of alternative software for Windows 10?

I was wondering if this radio is still available for purchase? If yes could you send me a link to it. The BCH-220 1.25 meter handheld radio.

Thank you
