    Enter the DR-635 T made by Alinco.

    This ham radio is offered as a mobile 2 meter and 440 dual band radio. Might be something to consider for the following reasons.

    1. lowest cost new cross band repeat capable radio
    2. Super easy to mod to allow for wider transmitting capability
    3. Intuitive and very easy to program in the field with no software necessary.

    ** Disclaimer.... it is against the law for a non-ham to transmit on ham frequencies. It is also against the law to use a ham radio to transmit on FRS frequencies with increased power output. This information is mentioned only for FYI purposes. Having said that, FCC rules say that anyone can transmit on any frequency in an emergency. Perhaps having a tool that is versatile at the ready for emergencies is a good thing? I will leave that to you to decide.

    Here is a link to a video that shows the easy mod.

    For those who are unfamiliar with cross band repeat, this radio can be used as a repeater. For instance, if installed in a pickup truck, the truck could be parked on a hilltop, and handheld radios on all sides of the hill would still be able to talk to one another as they operated through the repeating radio in the pickup. Super easy to do! Works well!

    Well, that's my two cents... Please do feel free to offer other points of view or ask questions. WW2K -Brian-
