TYT UV8000E Range Test Video

I have created a video testing the range of the TYT UV8000E handheld radio. I am preparing  written and video reviews for the radio, but until then, I thought I’d post this here.

The test was done with my Yaesu FT-857D listening on 2m and 70cm in my shack, connected to my Diamond X200 antenna. Distance was 11.04km (6.86 miles).

Here’s the Google maps screenshot indicating my shack (“0”, near “Kalamaria” label, right side of the map) and the location I was at (“11.04” spot, left side of the map):
