    Regarding the Uniden UM-525ES radio: If you plan to purchase the new “ES” series (2nd generation of Uniden’s VHF “DSC” radios), be sure, when you order, that you are getting what you expect. Most of the websites show UM-525 (1st gen) and list the same features and an “ES” series. If you want an “ES” series, the radio is labeled ‘Uniden ES’ on the upper left of the front panel. The “ES” is improved model.

    Tom Edwards comment about UM-525 ES does not seem to be correct. It is true though that you can find versions with and without the ES on the front. I therefore contacted UNIDEN USA’s Customer Service to ask if there were or had been two different versions of the model. Their reply is that there is only one version; the units are identical on the inside, irrespective of whether it says “UM-525 ES” or “UM-525” on the front. It’s cosmetics only.
