    Your question is like asking what firearm should I get. What application. What range do you need. Who do you intend to communicate with. I could go on.

    There is a guy with a tremendous amount of knowledge, and actual experience, that teaches all of it. He has written page after page on his site. He was Special Forces, and communications was his specialty. He goes by NC Scout, and you can get a lot of information at https://brushbeater.org/the-foundati...ations-basics/

    I just ordered the new gen3 8w, 3800. No reason not to upgrade while I'm thinking about it

    I’ve used them. At the beginning of shift I would pick it up off the charger, make sure it worked and turned on and wasn’t missing pieces. End of shift I would plug it back in.... I hate 10 codes btw.... Just saying....

    Depending on what freqs you are going to use the older ones are better. On FRS, like walkie talkies freqs, VHF and UHF the old ones transmit way above what they are suppose to. The old ones transmit at 5 watts and they are only suppose to transmit at like .5 or 1 watt according to the FCC to be compliant. With the new models the 8 watts they are talking about are on HAM freqs and not the others. Its why a couple years ago there was a sudden rush to get the old ones. For HAM freqs you are suppose to be licensed to talk on them. Depending on the area there are old radio fudds that WILL try to track you down because they are rules police and their wieners don't work.

    Beofengs are also not encryped so they transmit in the open and are easily triangulated. Something to consider depending on who the bad guys might be.

    I specifically did not get the HAM version for that reason.
