The radio is solid, well made but you spend hours trying to communicate between the PC and the radio.
Only 20% of the time the communication between them works. I will not recommend this radio until they fix the driver for the cable. The one for HD1 doesn't work.
Great Radio - Outstanding Service
I purchased this radio as a backup radio for EMS (Emergency Medical Service) use. Programming with the software downloaded from the Retivis website took less than 30 minutes. The programming cable does not come with this radio and must be ordered separately. The radio feels solid and well built. The audio quality on this radio even with the external microphone is fantastic. No crackly tinny sounding speakers here. I have been able to call back to our dispatch from 5 miles away with out issue (175ft tower at base). Battery life has been excellent but I ordered a second battery for this radio. It uses the same as the Ailunce HD1 battery. The battery arrived and appeared to have been used. I contacted Angela in customer support via email and she sent a replacement battery which arrived in about 72 hours. I also received an update email from Angela every day in between. For the price of this radio it is worth a try. I have used it every day since receiving it and it has been problem free.

The radio is solid for commercial use, easy to program with the right cable driver (not the one for HD1). The only bad is that you can't control the power from a side key, only from software. Besides that i am happy with the purchase.
Decent radio however-
before you decide to buy be aware that In the US you will either need a tech class ham license or a commercial license to operate these legally. These are NOT FRS, MURS or GMRS radios.
AWESOME RADIOS on
I bought (5) of these radios. They are so awesome that I actually gave 2 to a close friend who lives in the country and cell service isn't always reliable there. He loves them! My girlfriend and I are planning on buying some more!
Thanks Retevis, for making a durable, long-lasting product that stands up to the toughest conditions and works fantastic.
Great value radio, high power tx, easy to program
Bought this radio after perchasing my second HD1, just as good as the HD1 for build quality, accessories are all interchangable. Analogue only, but if you want a HT for your loacal repeaters and simplex this is great value for your money.
I purchased these radios (RT29-IP67) for business use and I couldn't be happier with the performance. They get used in the rain and in situations where they might get dropped or knocked around with absolutely no issues. We use them in very large buildings and across town (in simplex and repeater setup, respectively) and get crisp, clear sound. I use the Nagoya 701C antennas with great results, but the supplied antenna works very well,also.
If I were to find any fault at all with these radios, it would be the speaker. It is a little high pitched and in a moderately loud environment it can be a little hard to hear without having it close to your ear. The IP67 speaker/mic makes up for that, easily, but there are times when it is not easy to work with the speaker/mic attached. Other than that one suggestion, I have neither had nor found any problems or actual issues at all.
I highly recommend these radios (as well as the speaker/mic).
Worked well on a hiking trip in the mountains

Used them for a mountain hiking trip. Not sure about 30 miles, certainly not with obstacles between them, but the sound within 5 miles was loud and clear.
The fact it comes with rechargeables and a charger is just great.
they are really solid radios for local area use. Battery life is very long and figuring The fact it comes with rechargeables and a charger is just great.
