Buyer's Guide - Loud Audio Radios

Radios in this categaory can be heard under some of the noisiest conditions. A typical 2-way radio has a 500mW audio speaker output. These radios deliver between 700mW to 1,000mW powerful audio output. Their speakers can be heard clearly even when there's lots of noise.

First, I need help deciding if VHF or UHF is best for me.
