I'm looking for a 2m/70cm radio to put in an ARES go box. I do not need any bands other than 2m/70cm for what I will be using this radio for. Since the radio will need to be battery powered at times I would like a low power option of 5 watts instead of 10 watts that I see on some radios. The radio also needs to be small footprint since it will be going in a box with other hardwear. I had been looking at the TYT mini radio or the BTech UV-25x2 but for this radio I think I better stick with one of the big 3 manufacturers since the radio needs to be reliable for emergency comms.
