Harumph! If you already have a solid mobile rig, and maybe even another good HT, then yeah get a cheapo HT for another toy. I don't touch mine much either, but do have one tossed in the truck as a backup.

Only mistake IMO is buying one as your first Ham radio.. would be like buying a cheap sleeping bag & at Walmart then go camping for the first time, freeze all night, and conclude that camping is an awful experience. A cheap HT could ruin your first impressions of Ham radio.
