I can also vouch for the Kenwood TH-F6. I have an older version and it is a very well made radio and not too difficult to program (not as easy as say the IC-2AT, but I can figure it out without the manual). The battery as a lithium ion and I have never had to replace it. The battery charging circuit is built in, so any 12 volt power source will charge it. It is on high end price wise for an HT, but worth the money IMHO.

Listen up, Doc.
The Kenwood TH-6F has been in continuous production for 18 years! When you carefully investigate its wide-ranging capabilities, you'll see why.
I even use it to chase down rfi around the house and the neighborhood, or for casual listening anywhere to just about anything that's being radiated on almost any frequency, cell phone blocked of course, but there are people who probably can hack even that out.
Lots TH-6Fs are being sold, and by lots of competing suppliers, so bite the bullet, shop around and go for something you can and will use every day.

I'd concur with Wayne on the FT-60R. Saw one at Gigaparts for $65, but the price at most places is $150 up. Several friends have them.
I like my Kenwood TH-6F, but it is considerably more capable at a corresponding price...
