Wouxun KG-UVD1P all the way, Love it, but the best fifteen dollars I ever spent was on the programming cable. It's not a serious pan in the a** to program by hand, I would say that the people who say it is a PITA are the Yaesu groupies that want auto-repeater shift and GPS and a built in TNC and just boatloads of absolutely unnecessary ( in my mind only though ) bells and whistles. I love it to death, but I do think it needs a better antenna, even with a tigertail on it, it kind of sucks. Then again, what do you expect from a rubber duck antenna?
