Iron Mountain Jubilee 2021

Each year my club's AUXCOMM group provides communications for an endurance horse ride that crosses three counties a covers a lot of challenging mountain terrain. Due to the pandemic most of our public service events were canceled last year, but luckily this year we were able to get out and practice our radio skills.

Retevis RT99 (Vero VR-N7500) Product Review

I had seen the Vero VR-N7500 reviewed a couple years ago and thought it sounded interesting. But at the time I couldn't see shelling out the $200+ for the radio, especially since most reviews showed the app control over the radio was lacking quite a bit. You could get a better known dual band mobile radio for about the same price. So, I forgot about it. Then recently I saw an advertisement from Retevis for their model RT99 and was again reminded of the N7500. Turns out both the RT99 and N7500 are the same radio and Retevis was having a sale on theirs that made it a good price for the advertised capabilities.
