Our local CERT group is considering upgrading some of our (GMRS) radios and are looking at the Motorola/Vertex EVX-S24 and VX-264. Model numbers EVX-S24-G6-3 and VX-264-G7-5.
Both radios seem suitable for our needs and the VX264 looks a bit more attractive with 5 watts output and a slightly lower price point on the used market. However, the EVX-S24 is available in Yellow which is something to consider for our application.
Anyway, I was wondering if anyone here has direct experience with these radios, or some good information to help us decide if we should get a couple of radios for testing.
Any thoughts welcomed.
