    Smile Travel/Hiking Radio

    I own and highly recommend the Sangean DT-400W for your travel and hiking adventures, or just as an everyday carry radio.

    Darcy:

    The color makes it easy to spot in my TB cafe and Imago
    bags.

    Yaesu FT-817nd

    Now this is a Travel/Hiking Radio!

    http://www.yaesu.com/downloadFile.cf...lication%2Fpdf

    I have used mine to talk over 300 miles from a 14,000' trail in Colorado among other amazing contacts.
    It will also tune standard AM/FM broadcast and Weather too.

    Thumbs up Travel/Hiking/Walking Radio

    Another high performance pocket radio to consider is the
    Sony SRF T615 @ $110 USD.

    BTW, the Yaesu FT 817 mentioned on this thread sells for
    $599. A bit of overkill for our purposes and requires a
    ham radio license...but I'm putting on my wish list.

    I assume you mean for "Your" purposes?
    For me i is exact right radio and so much more.
    You do not need a License to use this radio,only to transmit with it.
    It is a great receiver too.

    Also no one pays $599.00 for them,Ham's are the CHEAPEST people I have ever met and I have met a lot of cheap people!

    Of course,don't overlook the need for custom bags too.

    This is my current favorite,always riding in my Brain Bag/Emergency Kit.

    Trust me,right now ANYONE can easily get an Amateur Radio License if they want to.
