What's the tinyest 2m HT out there? Alinco has a dual bander that's crazy small. Anything else in that neighborhood?

Discontinued, but this Alincocredit card ht used to be. It even has a mosquito repeller built in HA!

Yaesu Vx-3r


I have one. It's not bad.

I think that would be the miniaturization winner.

Standard had a tiny 2m (and matching 440) HT. Yaesu VX-2r was also pretty tiny, and dual band. Both of those (IIRC) were thicker but a little smaller in the other dimensions than the credit card Alinco.

My VX-6R is incredibly small.

It looks like Bander has some DJ-C5s, if you're willing to ship from overseas.

For a tri-bander, the VX7r amazes me with it's small size.

I have a Kenwood TH-F6A that is fairly small in height and width. Thickness is almost as much as a larger size handheld. Keep in mind that the buttons are a lot closer and not very user friendly if a person is chubby fingered.

Also one of the only HT's with a 0.01 - 1300 MHz receiver that's capable of receiving SSB and CW. Heck of a lot of features packed inside that little box...

Wasn't that thing so small it didn't have a speaker? IIRC you needed earphones.

ETA: Nope, I mis-remembered. It did/does have a speaker.

Stay Safe,

Thanks kindly. You are a lively group.

I also have a Baofeng UV-3R. It is quite small.

The Alinco 2/440 had a speaker, the monobanders needed the earplug.
