Just wondering what other people/divisions are using for portable radios for duties along with how/where they got these from. In Brockville, we had received 6 brand new radios through a grant a few years back and they are starting to break and are becoming costly to keep repairing, so we are looking to replace with new radios but dont want to spend a fortune in doing so. If anyone can help out, it would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Hi Brian,

In York Region we have 8 Kenwood Tk-2202 - 8 Channel radios with extended radio mic. They were originally purchased from Ace-Comm inc back in 2003/2004 and are still working great. Several of the members in my area have purchased the acoustic ear tubs (at personal cost) for comfort/personal choice.

The newer version of our radios would be the Kenwood Tk-2302P/Tk-3302P which Ace-Comm carries.

I would recommend Ace-Comm for the radio itself and CanComm Radios for the accessories.

Hi Brian,
We have a few different ones however the i-Com seems to be a good alternative. One recommendation I would make is to check with your local Amateur Radio group and see if one of their members would volunteer to be your radio tech support. We have one in our group and he has been able to find a lot of radio equipment for a lot less than retail and he's great to fix and reprogram radios as needed.
