Gear Advice: Extra HAM Radio
It is almost a 100% certainty that you or a fellow operator will experience equipment failures or accidents in the field, and when they happen, having alternative equipment to use keeps you on the air. You don't want to be the HAM that is off the air because you were not prepared!
Note: The second radio should have it's own extra batteries to let it run for 12 hours independent of your main radio.
