Not associated with HRO, but wanted to pass along a great deal. If 
you're interested in adding 222 and 902 at a great price, look into the 
Alinco DJ-G29T handi-talkie. For under $200, you get 5 watts on both 
bands. FM only, but an inexpensive way to add multipliers in the next 
VHF Contest.

The "Ghost Band" at 222 is one of the undiscovered treasures in our 
spectrum with range nearly equal to 2 Meters and not nearly as much 
noise. 902 is a lot of fun as well. This radio is easy to program, and 
performs well. Marry it to a decent Yagi, and you've got a good start on 
these bands. You can always upgrade to a transverter later on. The link 
is below:
