I have one and use it almost daily.  It is a great little handheld,
however it is not full duplex, meaning you can not simultaneously
transmit and receive.  When you key up and transmit, the receiver cuts
out.  To simultaneously transmit and receive you will need an
additional rig.

Today I was scanning the HRO catalogue looking for an inexpensive solution to full duplex contacts for the linear birds and I ran across the Kenwood TH-F6A hand held 144, 222, and 450 MHZ FM with SSB option on receive only.  That sounds to me like a great fairly inexpensive solution.
