Thanks Craig.

I've requested some pricing locally. I wish the VX-4200 (mobile) had the inbuilt voice inverter so you didn't have to choose between MDC1200 or the other.

Anyway I don't think you can complain. They look and sound like great radios.

Oh yeah the band split could be wider. What is the go with the VHF split, is it easy to get down to 144 or at least 146?
