For those of you in Canada, the US is far more strict about radio communications outside the FRS ranges, including significant fines and jail time. So don't tell someone form the US to grab a VHF or UHF radio and use it unlicensed unless you know the ramifications.
I'm from Ukraine, I just need cheap compatible radio...

I highly recommend the Motorola Jedi series, specifically the MTS-2000 UHF, 48 channel (don't bother with 2 or 16 ch versions). Used/surplus units can be acquired from eBay for under $100 with new a battery and antenna, but you will need to have it programmed by someone with CPS software. It also features a back-lit display on top.

According to the info I have Nacre loads each system with two downlead specs A1 or A2. One being the PRC radio downlead. The other for use with the XTS downlead. Now if you can make an adapter matching the pinout could you use it with any radio? Since I understand the choice of radio applies to type of downlead not what is at the end of it.

the polarity is reversed on certain radio ptt attachments. For example, Kenwood vs Motorolla...so changing the downlead isn't always workable, you need to change the PTT as well.

The QuietPro is all in one unit, PTT everything. The downleads come from QuietPro for the different radios either PRC or XTS as of now. The XTS downlead will work with any Motorola Jedi Radio (HT1000, MTS2000, JT1000, and all XTS series). As stated the HT1000 and MTS2000 are the cheapest but have to be reprogrammed. Searching the internet you can get the CPS software. The programming cable can be found online as well. So an investment on the hardware side has to be taken into account. There are people who have made PRC to ICOM radio adapter. The Kenwood two pin is more similar to the PRC then the ICOM is. The single Pin Motorola is more similar to the ICOM. So if the ICOM can be done then so a Kenwood 2 pin should be easier. Again hardware has to be taken into account. Since you would need to have the male end of the PRC cable to connect the wires and a doner Kenwood 2 pin with leads.
