Hi all, I was asked to decide to buy these radios. Ham here of course so feeling struggling to decide. I have been looking at Amazon and found the price and features of these two seem to meet the given requests. They get high-capacity battery and I think this is what I prefer. No HF/VHF/UHF mode rigs wanted. Still, not sure which to buy. (I understand that handheld transceivers aren’t good starter radios) Not sure if here is the right place to ask but I would like to have a try and am looking forward to listening to your voice. What do you think about them? Or do you have any other recommendations. What we use it for (with amateur radio licenses): mainly emergency communications and public service Budget: around $60 for one is fine (1) http://amzn.to/1UDQlbP (Baofeng GT-3TP Mark-III Tri-Power 8/4/1W with 7.4V 3800mAh Battery) (2) http://amzn.to/1Ou7Mtx (Baofeng GT-3 Mark-II with large capacity 7.4V 3800mAh Li-ion Battery) Thanks in advance. If this is a wrong/improper discussion here, I will say sorry about this. Please feel free to let me know.
