Question best HT de Mongo
I'm looking for an HT transceiver for Narrow Band FM. Need the 70cm band, CTCSS tones with selectable different tones for rec/xmit, split frequencies for repeaters and about 5 Watts RF power.

It would be nice if it also included GMRS; but I think no one would pay to get FCC type acceptance in 2 radio services.

So, any ideas as to candidates? I think we can mention brands and models; just no links to sites.

RE: best HT de Mongo
Depends on how much you want to spend. If you don't mind the country of origin, a Baofeng will do what you need it to do and they are cheap.

I copied this from an eBay listing:

FRS/GMRS (Dual-Service)
VHF, UHF
CTCSS, DCS, NOAA Weather Channels
Up to 8 watts
25KHz/12.5KHz Switchable (Wide /Narrow) Band
128 Memory Channels
50 CTCSS /104 DCS Tones
Transmit Power Selectable (1W /4W /8W)
VOX and OFFSET
Dual Standby /Dual Watch
A/B band independent operation
Time-Out Timer (TOT)
Busy Channel Lock-Out (BCLO)

Mode of Operation: Simple or Semi-Duplex
Modulation Mode: 16k F3E /11k F3E
Maximum deviation: ?5kHz (Wide) ?2.5kHz (Narrow)
CTCSS/DCS deviation: 0.5+/-0.1kHz (Wide) / 0.3+/-0.1kHz (Narrow)
Intermediation distortion:?10%



Using FlashAir W-03 SD card in machine. Access through wifi with FlashPAP or Sleep Master utilities.

I have had good luck with the Yaesu brand.

They are one of my favorites too. I have an FT-90 dual band, 50 Watt mobile rig; and I had an FT847 which I loved the shuttle tuning ring -- plus split band operation for satellite operation. The FT847 went open loop on the power control loop for the 70 cm band; and needs repair.

Generally Yaesu has a wide receive range.

I'm looking for an HT that can operated on 2M, 70cm and the GMRS band since I am licensed for both Amateur and GMRS.

Mongo, not sure if you've been to this site, but eham.net is a non-profit forum/website that has tons of info and a Ham gear review section that you may find useful in your search:

http://www.eham.net/reviews/

Like Shastzi, if I had a choice, I'd go with Yaesu, and Icom would be my second choice. I just like quality when it comes to ham equipment.

Although those cheap Baofeng's sure do look temping for the price. But, I'm not sure of their quality control or ease of use - I've heard both bad and good about Baofeng, but a lot of people love them considering you can get them for a fraction of the price of major brands. Found one 2-bander HT on Amazon for $36, which is almost a "disposable" price point, considering you could almost buy 5 Baofeng HTs for the price of one low-end Yaesu HT. Thinking-about
