When I decided to get back into ham radio, I first tried a cheap HT which I do not want to name. After feeling disappointed, I knew I had to get something better. I didn’t have much of a choice. Only the Kenwood TH-D74 provided good spoken feedback for the blind, and from a name I knew I could trust. This little HT got me back on air! I recommend a better antenna, such as the Diamond SRH-320A or something bigger like a J-Pole.
