Have you gone through the Illinois forum? They may have suggestions of radios over there, but likely your best bet would be a GRE PSR 800, which will set you back some $$, especially since GRE is likely not going to be making any new radios any time soon, if ever...

Thumbs up

The pro-197 or pro-106 does starcom21 just great, plus there are still a few floating around.
