I have zero first-hand experience, but according to...

...these are NOT dual-band radios. There is a VHF model and a UHF model, 
but no dual-band model. You can read the eHam review quoted above yourself, 
but to summarize, most folks seemed to think it was a decent radio for the 
price, as long as they didn't really need dual-band operation, could put up 
with the mangled English of the manual, and used the software to program it 
instead of fighting with the buttons to program it...
