Default BCA 2.0

Anybody else having issues with the 2.0? So far my old one works better.
Sometimes I won’t get any incoming unless I turn it off and back on.
Another buddies just started beeping and wouldn’t do anything until we Turned it off and back on.

I have seen nothing positive about any of the BCA radios. Guys I know with them are constantly bitching about them. I have run a Boafang the last 4 yrs and its been flawless. Same $6 shoulder mic too.

My original has been great. If you asked me based on performance, Id say the original was the second version and the 2.0 was the first prototype.

Mine works great. Had an issue with plastics during manufacturing and BCA replaced it no questions asked. 1st version, not 2.0.

Just got 2 new V2 radios last night.
Will have them out on the SnoWest Forum ride this weekend to see how they work.

I was at BCA in boulder last month. I bought a new avy vest and the zipper kept coming undone. It was obvious it was not aligned correctly, but they tired to say I wasn't zipping it right, that I had to FORCE it down. I have been using zippers for many many yrs and i have never had to force a zipper to work, even on a cheap Costco jacket. And to suggest it on a $900 product? I was very disappointed on BCA as a whole. Guy assisting me left 5 min into the meeting. No more BCA for me.

Imho, The bca link is a seriously overpriced toy. If you could buy it direct from china, it would cost about $9 + shipping.

I also have serious issues with Mike Duffy being such a proponent of the link and his stupid 9-11 emergency channel idea. I had some respect for Mike and his avi knowledge/instruction until, he started bad mouthing the baofeng and promoting the link. Now I have to question everything he says...

Sorry, back on subject....
The link meets FCC criteria for the FRS channels. Never intended to reliably communicate more than 3/4ths of a mile. These things are really only good for just a little further than you can shout. You know, one side of the Wal-Mart to the other.

The baofeng bf-888 (2 watt uhf 16 channel) can be had for $10. I consider it junk but, still 3 times the radio that the link is.

Get a real, cheap Chinese radio so that, you can enjoy reliable comms in the backcountry.

I understand the limitations of the BCA vs a real radio. But until someone comes up with a mic to rival the BCA, the BCA will still be king of the mountain.

The Mic is the worst part of the BCA. I have seen them become unplugged, channel changed by accident, and water in speaker. My $6 boafang mic is going on 4 yrs. Most of my group is dumping the BCA's and switching to BF.
