Price: $250.00
Pros: Durable, Submersible, Good display, great audio, good battery life.
Cons: Its easy to forget how to program, stock antenna is horrible inside the jeep(best to use another).
Recommended? Yes

Comments: If your a ham and looking to buy a portable, this one is great a good price. It looks sexy and works just as well. Another antenna is necessary I bought one that mounts outside the jeep and it works beautifully. This is my first radio and will be my only portable. Its advertised dual band but actually does 144/220/440. The manual is really easy to read and program the radio. You can buy a computer cable and cd but i found it is not necessary.

Price: $220.00
Pros: Compact and feels good in your hand, rugged, submersable, lots of accesories available, tons of memories
Cons: Alphanumeric memory tags are too short.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I bought one of these for my wife earlier this year. Works awsome. It is simple enough for her to figure out and oprerate on her own. It has plenty of memories and good good battery life.

This is the minimum HT radio I would consider for myself. Does everything you really need and nothing you don't. For gadget geeks like myself...take a look at the VX-8R.
