Reviews of VHF/UHF portable and handheld transceivers

Most amateurs have at least one handheld or portable transceiver for the 2m and/or 70cm band. They are now very low cost and permit easy communication via repeaters.

But that's not all they can do with many ideas given here. Some handheld transceivers I've used are reviewed and demonstrated here:

Quansheng UV-K5 (including use on DSB)


Trying a Retevis 70cm RB22 FM/DMR handheld transceiver


Retro review: Portable with the Icom IC-202 2m SSB transceiver
