Now if you are reading further down, this is NOT just some advertisement, and you should be warned, there is very little buyer support for these radios in the US because a lot of sellers hate the competition. That said, local radio sellers actually make most of the profit on these because of being able to provide local service in the form of replacement parts, accessories, and programming services. I should stress that these radios are next to useless without competent programming, and purely amateur users will probably be better off using a simpler FRS and or GMRS type radio.
