I'm thinking something about this size.  Do they exist?

Look into the B-Tech MURS-v1, or the Dakota Alert M538-HT.

 

or, for the absolute smallest radio, look for the VHF version of the Helida T-M2d.  I know there is a VHF version, because I have used one myself.  I own the UHF version, and it is much better than just a toy.  It is literally the size of a Bic lighter.  The VHF version seems to be very hard to find.

I own four of the Dakota Alert HTs, three or four of the base stations (three, I think), and a Radio Shack mobile MURS radio (that I haven't installed in the truck yet).  They're not what I would call small -- though they mercifully use AA NiMH batteries, so you don't have to dismantle and repack the battery pack when they go bad.

 

There's a VHF version of those tiny little things?  That's perfect!   :lol:

 

I was looking at the Alinco DJ-C1 and its immediate successors, but they appear to be very scarce and expensive, and while they only do about 300 mW, that's fine across the house.
