Nice comprehensive list. Should be a sticky. One better would be to add links to some of the other threads like the "how to program the BaoFeng" thread. And the antenna thread. And the radio install thread.

I have the KG-UV6D. I like that it is water resistant. I've used it in complete down pours and my buddy dropped it in the mud. No issues.

As for the truck radio I use the tyt9000. Have been happy with it when the antenna is working properly.

It should be noted the kenwood TK-790H, (Which I have) will object when you program in frequencys below or above its limits, but will allow it. I have 2 local repeaters in mine at 149mhz range, and it works quite well on them.

Great radio. Get them used for $200-$300.

Fasteddie: haven't tried to set it that low yet, but it works on the local repeater here on 145.145 like a charm. Software complains but allows you to enter it. I wonder if there is any limitation on what you can enter or just will complain.
