Here is America's newest, lightest, loudest, smallest dual band portable with 5 watts of power in both VHF and UHF - the MK-II from Falcon Direct. Most importantly, the MK-II is FCC Part 90 approved for commercial and public safety use. Unlike "modified" illegal amateur radios sometimes advertised at lower prices, the MK-II is built to take tough use and it's legal!
This little radio is especially well suited for any use requiring operation on both VHF and UHF frequencies. It weighs only 7.2 ounces and it measures only 2 inches wide by 3.88 inches high by 1.1 inches thick. That's about the size of a fat business card for a radio that covers the entire 136-174 MHz VHF and 400-470 MHz UHF bands. It covers the new narrow band frequencies with 2.5 kHz channel steps and can operate on up to 128 channels including Amateur, Commercial, Marine, Public Safety, and Weather channels.
The MK-II is field programmable from the keypad with no special cables or software required. With 5 full watts of power, it scans both VHF and UHF (dual watch) and has voice prompt channel announcements for channel changes - in real English that you can actually understand! CTCSS and DCS as well as ANI and DTMF encode are standard as is a 1800 mAh Lithium-Ion battery, desk charger, even a built in LED mini-flashlight and FM broadcast receiver!
The MK-II is covered by a one year warranty and qualifies for our exclusive Forever Young flat rate service program after the warranty expires. If you need a combination VHF-UHF portable radio at the right price, THIS is the radio for you. Oops, we almost forgot the price - It's only $149 including programming instructions and shipping.
