    Haven't heard it yet but if you are thinking about a HAM - the one that Sean picked up is a solid unit.

    Best Mobile Ham Radios

    I am at least a little interested in a hand held. I read in the BS thread that you could get one for just over $100? Got a link to support that?

    KG-UV2D 136-174 & 350-470..

    Can program from the keypad. No computer cable needed. Simple. Type frequency and then talk. Add private tone, then talk. Battery lasts about 4-6 hours.

    Same for all of the radios. The nice thing about the computer and cable is that you can share your set up with others. As much as I like a bargain, I personally would choose a Kenwood, Yaesu or ICOM. But that's me.

    One other point... I lend out my handheld every time I go out. With the exception of some canyon areas the handheld seems to do very well. To be on the safe side and to get more distance, you may want to get a mag mount external antenna and get better range.

    Hey, I am totally a Name Brand kind of guy, but I am being told to buy the WOUXUN by a Kenwood dealer. I know he bought one to try it out, and got hooked on it. He is totally a radio geek, so I don't question his judgment. Keep mind, it is also a Dual band radio.. the others you listed are all 2m unless I missed something. He has been using it for about a year now and to my surprise, still likes it.

    Lending out is a good way to make sure you can talk to the next truck! I have the little GMRS radios for that... works great in camp to keep up with the kids.

    For the price it seems like a bargain! Having dual band is nice for FRS monitoring (depending upon your radio, it may not allow you to tx at a low enough wattage to be legal) Did someone say legal?

    Price is good enough to get a few! :D

    :D

    * Nationwide emergency and road information calling. Nationally recognized coded squelch for 675 emergency repeater operation is 141.3 Hz.

    Unless you know you have access to a repeater on this frequency pair, do not expect this channel to be of any practical use in emergencies. Low power simplex portables on 462.675 will not attract much attention. A cellphone is much more reliable.
