Default 2013 Ford F-150

I have a 2013 Ford F 150. I have a BCT 15X already and wanted to put in a UHF radio. But was curious if one of these Dual Band Radios would work instead of spending a fortune on a Motorola. Any thoughts? Thanks

Work for what? Ham? An extra scanner?

Work in place of a mobile radio instead of purchasing an expensive Motorola mobile radio.

There are many other options than Motorola for LMR radios. I personally use Kenwood. There is also Icom, Vertex, Tait, amongst others. I have been very happy with Kenwood. Look at the TK-860HG. 128 channels and 128 zones. They can be found online for less than US$200' shipping included.

That dual band radio will not properly do 2.5KHz deviation, and is not legal outside of the ham bands.

Not to mention... Lots of used Motorola stuff on eBay, and a lot of it works fine.
