Zero at the bottom where it belongs
(Bench Tested with Telewave 44A)
CHIRP programming compatible
OEM converts to English with toolbar dropdown
Better RX audio quality
Larger speaker in larger case
Better TX audio quality
Better mid-level audio frequencies (punchier sound)
Probably also be due to larger case
Top of PTT selects TX (A). Bottom of PTT selects (B).
You can still change from RX (A) to (B) using the EXIT/AB key.
