A decent VHF/UHF dual band radio – Dual Frequency Display Multi Band Walkie-Talkie with VOX/Flashlight/FM Radio (VHF/UHF) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

-Good frequency range -CTCSS support -Built in flashlight -Unlocked, works on all frequencies both amateur and commercial -Field-programmable -Reasonable stock antenna -Cross-band operation, so you can theoretically use it for satellite operations -Manual is in english (you'll need it)
-No DTMF tones -Programmable from PC, but cable is not included -Interface is a little hard to navigate -Almost undoubtedly illegal for commercial use wherever you might live, amateur will depend on your country's regs. -Scanning speed's a little slow, but it's not a scanner anyway.
I recieved this radio two days ago and I've successfully used it to connect to 2m and 70cm repeaters located more than 30km away with crystal clear reception. Programming can be a little confusing at first, but the manual translation came out well and is very understandable. Be warned this may very well be illegal where you live: it's unlocked and easily programmable in the field. This automatically excludes it from most commercial operations. Ham depends on the regs.
Comparable big-name radios start at $200, and those come locked. At this price, this is definitely worth it for the ham on a budget or as a spare.
