Question about Icom IC-R5 Handheld Scanner
Which radio would you Buy? Icom IC-R2 or the Icom IC-R5 or the Yaesu VR-500 ? Thanks for your Time......................
I am a marine electronics technician with 28 years experience. I have also been a licensed amateur radio operator for the past 12 years. Based on my professional experience with both brands (Icom and Yaesu), I have to advise you to go with one of the Icom units. The Yaesu is a good radio, but Icom's customer support is far superior. I have had no problems dealing with their service department over the years, something I can't say about Yaesu.
Hope this helps.

The service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
