An owner review of the Baofeng GT-3TP
by James Pearson-Harris
“This is a great little radio! I bought it before I was licensed as a HAM radio operator. It’s great for listening, and talking since I was licensed on the local repeaters. It’s also handy for monitoring Maritime / Marine VHF, and some business radio! I hardly ever leave the house without this radio! Advice for buyers, get the extended battery, just because you can!”
