I am looking for a new handheld radio. I don't need a lot of memory places to put channels. But there are a few things that I would like. I don't know what is possible and which ones I can get out of a radio. This is the need columm. 2m and/or 440 70cM Field programmable. Easy channel splits for repeaters. Normal channel splits as well as abnormal channel splits. Ability to monitor commercial VHF Ability to transmit on commercial VHF This is the WANT columm. I would like to be able get WX channels (NWS) Alpha numeric programming for channels. I don't know if 2m/70cM radios can transmit on commercial VHF or not. I know that some Kenwood commercial VHF radios will transmit on 2m. The reason I need one radio to transmit on both is that I will be with the SAR team and will need to be able to interface with the local sheriff SAR team. Does such a critter exist, or am I going to be looking at carrying two radios? I know that some handhelds can be mod'd to get them to transmit on commercial VHF but they are illegal and per board rules I don't want to discuss them here.
