12W handheld? - no thanks!

Considering the small difference (in range) between 2W and 12W and the very real danger (allegedly) of 12W next to the head and eyes I have no wish to buy a 12W handheld.  Even working professionally on 5W pep PAs I regularly had dry eyes.

Amateur Radio Weekly reports on a Chinese 3 band 12W handheld.

Hi Roger

Your Fredbox has shown what is possible with with mW power levels.
I had so much fun with my Pye pocket phone .you can't get a quart out.of a pint pot!
Apart from the health azzard I can't see the PA lasting long.😄
