Which UHF with screen/controls on mic plus aerial?

Unread post by eveyoz » April 14th, 2015, 5:16 am

Hi all, I'm finally looking to get UHF. I'm looking to hide the unit behind the dash and have the mic on the dash.

Which unit do you recommend?

One comment I received in my research is that the handset speaker can be a bit quiet and I may need a second speaker. Is this your experience? Should I get a second speaker?

What aerial/antenna should I use for highway and bush use?

I don't want to spend a fortune but would like something decent (don't we all lol).

Thanks! :)

I have the Icom 440N and find the speaker in the handpiece is both loud and clear. Highly recommend. Check out Prestige Communications for a good price.
