VX-3E or Equivalent any suggestions

Post by AlanB » 19 Sep 2016, 22:01

Hi All,
My trusty Yaesu VX1R's Battery is on its last legs so I thought about buying a new handheld, I'm thinking about getting a VX-3R as I tend to listen to the airband quite a bit.
Are there any better radios in the same or less price range (£109.00) that I should consider?
I like the small form factor of the VX-1, I also have an FT-60 but that is too big for a grab and go radio.

Look forward to your suggestions of alternatives,
