2m or 2m/70cm mobile radio

Anybody have a functioning spare laying around gathering dust? I'm looking for something priced right to put in my desert rig.
Thanks,
Dave

eBay is probably as good as anything for this.

If you're going to run with the club then I would get a dual band rather than the 2m only as they use 70cm repeaters from time to time.

There are some amazingly cheap Chinese rigs these days ... I looked at getting my licence back and couldn't believe how prices had fallen ( it has been 25years though! )

Not to sure about the Chinese radios. Programming is supposed to be a PITA.

I have a couple of the Baofeng HTs as loaner/walkabout units and programming them certainly IS a PITA. Its getting better though as they become more popular and 3rd parties are writing SW.

I'm looking for something that is programmable on the fly like my Yaesu FT-60. Simpler is better.

From the keypad they are not so bad, its the SW that's iffy. Simplex is easy its just straight VFO, duplex is a bit more involved with a few menus to go through but its still not so bad. Cant beat the price and most of them come out the box with expended freq ranges if you need it.
