    x3! Any outdoor gadget that is droppable I get in bright colors or put orange duck tape on. I've always used motorolas. Not sure of the exact type, but do like having wx channels with me on my radio.

    Stick with motorola.

    Best 2 places to get them: Home Depot or Costco.

    Have fun!

    Any recommendation on a water proof one. I have the set of motorolas minus one that fell out of my pocket into the water while setting up a test. I was surprised it died with only 3 seconds under water.

    Ahh saw it on the second link .... nice.

    FWIW, I've had good experience buying used radios from this seller. Have purchased 25 radios for personal and club use in the past month and all work A--OK

    Costco had a couple of different motorola models for a pretty good price. I may pick up a few more next time I am there.

    FWIW, after Angie (I think it was) posted in the product review forum a while back about the Midlands, I got a pair and tried them. Since then I have been replacing my Motorolas with the Midlands. Not that I had any problems with the Motos but the Midlands are clearer, seem to have better battery life and have a longer range.
