I will say that unless you just want an HT or already have one I would surely go for a real full powered mobile radio. Most now are computer programmable and they all have the latest features.
The short mag mount ant will still work fine with any mobile. If you have only one radio the HT is easily moved inside the house if needed. Most mobile radios are also easily removed to be used inside or outside. Mobiles do not cost all that much more than some of the HTS and you do have 50 watts on most of them. One problem is that there are JUST SO MANY CHOICES TO MAKE. Check with locals and see what they recommend before you buy. Ask things like ARE THEY EASILY PROGRAMMED? etc. Ask if you can talk on their radio for a while and see what YOU think.
