I recommend the Baofeng UV-5R as a backup comm source. 5 mile range, led flashlight with blink function, $27. Can be paired into a Sena bluetooth hub and used seamlessly with SR10 and 20 and a push to talk button.
Agree on the Baofengs- had 'em and didn't test them before that fateful night - bad move on our part. But, inReach to the rescue. We accidentally were able to text each other via satellite. Figured out how to not make it an accident the next day (by reading the manual :doh:). Will be glad to do a tutorial on setting them up for anyone that's interested.
