I am looking to replace a couple old BC130s (UHF) which worked fine, but are hard to come by. I searched eBay for used and got scammed on several non-functioning units. So I'm shopping for a set of 10 new radios. A fresh clean, working start.
I am currently awaiting a quote from my local BearCom office for 10 BC130s with 10 chargers. Is there any other model/brand I should be considering?
My usage is local, less than 1 mile, mostly indoors at large arena/expo venues. My primary concern is clarity, volume, and signal strength. Later I will add ear-pieces with mics (ideally with button, not voice-operated).
edit: I should point out, I like the old BC130s because of their simplicity. A channel dial and volume dial, a talk button and nothing else. This is all that's needed for our work crew.
Any suggestions are appreciated.
