Default Dual band 155 and GMRS

Anybody know if there is a radio that
will do dual band 155/470 mhz that will
go as high as 512 or 520 mhz?
ie VHF 136-174 UHF 430-470 and 470(490)-520

I should have made the Subject/Title VHF/UHF + T-Band

Looking for something for the car that
has a small footprint and will do these freq's.
I'm not looking to break the bank on this one.
Under $200 would be great. And I'm not opposed
to CCR radio if it covers the bands.

And before anybody asks... The T-Band is mainly for RX,
that band is getting active around here since all of the
public safety agencies abandoned them. Also, a friend of
mine has a repeater up around 502 mhz that i have permission
to use.

I believe most of the Baufeng CCR radios will cover that range. Certainly the UV82 or it's Part 90 approved version, UV82C do.

Thank you for the reply Steve.
I also should have mentioned that I am
looking for an actual mobile radio. I have 5
of the Baofeng BF-F9 handhelds, but reaching
the repeaters with just 4-6 watts max can be
a little tough. I'm looking for something a bit more
beefy. I did have a Baofeng BF-9500 mobile, but
it somehow blew up while my brother was using
it. I opened it up and the PA was completely
disintegrated. (I mean crumbs fell out from under
the heatsink)

For CCR mobile radios, the BTech UV-25x2 (25W) and UV-50x2 (50W) cover that range and are both under your budget.

The Alinco DR-638T might fit your needs.

I kind of like the UV-50x2. While I'm not crazy
about the CCR's some of them stand up to my
expectations, and then some.
What I'm trying to accomplish is: increase my
frequency range while not decreasing the
available space in my Hyundai.

I read all the specs and it clearly says "Tx 400~480Mhz"
Then it lists the Rx as 400~ 523Mhz. I'm thinking Tx turns off
at 479.999. Ive been looking for someone who has one and
posted how they opened up the Tx up to 523Mhz, but nothing
so far. Thank you for the reply
