Need a good but cheap 440 MHz handheld?
Here is the ALINCO DJ-V47T.
The Alinco DJ-V47T 440mhz handheld transceiver is built to stand up to the elements. It is ruggedly built to IPX7 standards meaning it can be submersed in 3 feet of water for up to 30 minutes. This 4.5 watt radio has 200 memories, and back-lit alphanumeric display and direct keypad frequency entry.
Transmit is 430 – 449.995 MHz and receive is 410 – 469.995 MHz. 4.5 watts. Tuning steps are: 5, 10, 12.5, 15, 20, 25 and 30 kHz. A strong 500 mW audio amp provides big audio. A variety of charging adapters are available.
Only $49 from Ham Radio Outlet. Limited inventory and special HRO warranty provisions. But at this price, who cares… Update: this sale is regrettably over. The radio may still be available, but at a higher price.
