You only get the 2W if you spring for the £20 programming lead and software [MyDel Dyna-Prog - sounds like something from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy], which also lets you program them for 70cms [or SUKL for that matter].

By the time you add the £11 shipping the UK sellers on eBay are cheaper.

Either they are good sellers, or that stock is shifting really slow ;-)
