Icom IC-V80 was my first branded HT rdo, great use on our civic group operation and also for modulation and monitoring. simple features it has water resistant and shock proof, rx/tx: 136 to 174 MHz great also for amateur and commercial bands and for repeater and simplex and for addition transmit distance used a double stock dipole antenna and sometimes use telescopic antenna. perfomance wise and value for money - two thumbs up for ICOM.
