Keep your eyes peeled at hamfests for Bendix King portable radios that
are downbanded into the ham band. Saw a bunch of them at Hamcation
gone wanting for $20 a piece. Drop $40 (or less) on two radios and two
more batteries and a charger for another $40 gives you 5w on vhf and
4w on UHF.
These things are field programmable and just about indestructible.
