Pros: its actually a TM-281A has weather alert and has 65 watts out
Cons: need a lincense
Comments: Unfortunately there is no item for the the TM-281A, so I just added mine.
I love this radio! I use 2 of them 1 in the Jeep and one in the house. I have to say the dust does not bother them and they are NOT water proof! for some reason some folks think they are because they have a mil-spec rating for vibration and dust.
65 watts on 2 meters fm works great between rigs, but really I use low power when wheeling as the other rigs are usually closer and high power would overload them.
