Quirky APRS, HG-UV98 Lanch NLH Ham Radio Handheld Review

Chinese radios have come a long way, many have impressive feature lists, but those features seem to be stuck behind programming or poorly implemented design. The HG-UV98 seems like a radio that *should* be a fully implemented APRS radio. It can do bluetooth to tablets and computers, it digitpeats and handles weather station information. So how did they forget MESSAGING!? I think its 100% the developers not understanding the value of APRS.

Want a *good* FTDI programing cable? Consider: https://amzn.to/3i5HYeX the 6 in 1 design means you can program most radios with this one kit. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.
