Livia...up to thousands of miles...the SSB weather broadcasts should be receivable anywhere in the area they cover with a decent antenna on any of the decent portables. Can't comment on the portable ham tranceiver.

And the handheld radio you listed is a 70 cm band transceiver. It is line of sight only and is primarily used to communicate via repeaters.

Thanks to both of you. I appreciate it. I think we'll pick up a receiver like those listed in this thread for the trip at the end of July. I will start using it to listen to the weather as soon as I get it so I can learn what works.

Not a problem. Although it will be good when you get your radio installed! It is nice to know that you can holler for help and you will be heard miles away. The new SSB radios like the ICOM M802 are easy to install and have a DSC function just like the newer VHF radios have.
