In all reality US$1680 is FAR to expensve for 1W limited freq radio (unless you NEED a HF HT). You cant rely on 'skip' for emergency comms. Note also the limit of 6MHz as highest freq of the two selectable.

A$1700 will get you a good 100W Codan or Barratt with more acceptable antenna (even auto tune for 825/828 codans).

Check out one of the avid 4wd'r who has a side interest in this area for some thing a little more fitting to your pocket. http://home.iprimus.com.au/jimshire/

All this is not to say the unit mentioned is BAD.

I did see one for sale at the recent 4wd swap meet for closer to A$350 (from memory)

No affiliation except 4wd ... yadda yadda.....
