    My first HT around 1984 (and first radio without any tubes) was an Icom IC-2A, which I later added a PL board to and still use occasionally for APRS.

    Then in 1992 a Radio Shack HTX-202, still used occasionaly for APRS or FMSats.

    Yaesu FT-430, no longer working.

    Alinco DJ-280TH, 220 HT, that I use at least weekly to check-in on club repeaters and often use while mobile.

    Two Yaesu VX-5R (one black and one silver) for general FM repeater use and FMSats.

    A new Baofeng UV-3R that I got specifically for APRS using my Droid phone, since it has VOX built in...

    Not counting FRS and GMRS, toys, and the half dozen or so CB HTs I had back "in the day", the count stands at three Icoms (favorite being the IC-T21A), two Kenwoods (TH-D7A), two Motorolas (favorite being my beloved XTS-2500i), and two Yaesus (FT-60R)

    The FT-60 is my day to day HT that pretty much goes anywhere I go. The XTS-2500i is my public service event rig, cross banded through my truck or direct to one of the local 440 machines. It's big, it's heavy and it works like a champ. Battery life averages about 8-9 hours for me, with me working as net control.

    The Kenwoods I absolutely hate. They don't feel right in my hand, stick out too far if worn on the belt, and they just feel fragile, like they're going to fall to pieces if you look at them wrong.

    0, yes 0, that's 3-3=0, zero

    But I am borrowing one right now, and ICOM dual bander, icom ic-t7h

    I do not like it, the duty cycle on it is REALLY low, any more than about 60 seconds in a row and it starts to get hot and cuts out

    Put a tiger tail on it, and run it at low or medium power output.

    I owned just one so far; Baofeng UV-5R.
