Being new to amateur radio I am near the front end of my learning curve. My job requires me to travel a lot and I would like to get an HT to take with me. After looking at what is available and pricing, right now it is a toss up between a Yaesu FT2DR and a Yaesu VX-8DR but that changes almost daily.

I am looking for a dual band (2M and 70CM) with at least 5W output and good battery life.

I was wondering if anyone could offer any advice on what to look for in an HT as in which whistles and bells are desirable and which ones are really not needed.

Any thoughts would be welcome.
