Re: Best handheld radio under $250 - opinions please
Most of these radios mentioned are made in Shenzhen, China. My radio of choice is a cheap, less then 50 buck,throw away, radio manufactured under the name 'Baufeng', that covers all the marine, ham and FRS freqs. Comes with charger, program cable and a battery that lasts for days. All in a package size of a pack of cigarets.
One note this radio is not type accepted for marine use..but what the heck..it's an amazing little radio with a lot of bang for the buck factor.
