Default Hi, my name is Hants...

... and I'm a gadget freak.

I'm in the market for a mobile radio & HT. I'm pretty sure I want the following features:

2M & 70cm (is there significant utility to having additional mobile bands?)
50W (power is good, is more power better?)
Cross-band repeat (full duplex to/from HT)
APRS (I already have the GPS; does anyone here have first hand experience?)

I curious about the following features/technologies:


Has anyone here used them? How widespread are repeaters that support them, particularly in the backcountry? Internet anywhere would be the goal.

Thoughts? Recommendations?
