    446SHOP have 8watt baofeng radios. $35 to $60. Takes about 14 to 16 days shipping. Not much on Ebay and Amazon is slim pickings too. I used these guys for the last 3 that I got for friends. 5watts are 35-37 bucks. Radioditty are rebranded Baofeng. Baofeng Canada will get you a radio quicker but a bit pricier. Still a fair amount of suppliers out there.

    Its my understanding they are illegal but whos checking! I took one to get it programmed and the radio shop guy told me it was illegal for him to program it. He told me to go to ebay and buy a programming "kit".

    I tried to get 2X Baofeng radios on Amazon recently. The order was accepted, then next day received notice that they weren’t available in Canada. I have Icom vhf’s in my pickup and travel trailer, but handhelds would have been nice.

    You can get them at https://www.fleetwooddp.com/ . I got 2X Baofeng last year there together with programming software and cable.

    Fleetwood is good to deal with and you can get patch cord from him to plug your radio into the computer and down load a program called Chirp and you can program yourself. Also you do not even need a computer they have a keypad do you can program anytime anywhere. You can also just get lists of channels on line to program
