I'm about to update/refresh my 2M radio inventory and increase it to about 6 transceivers.  Years ago I bought FT2900R and that model has worked fine.  But I despised the inability to program efficiently without a 3rd party application, and I thought the user interface was poor, particularly the lock button being the same as the bleeping WIRES button.  So when I needed HT, I bought Kenwood TH-K20A to get factory MCP-5A software to program via PC, and a better user interface.  I have been happy with the TH-K20A other than the poor range which is to be expected with the rubber ducky.

I want the user interface to be similar between HT's and mobiles.  Now I have to decide should I buy more FT2980R's and get FT-270R's or should I sell off FT2900R and buy TM-281A's and more TH-K20A.  I am just about ready to do the latter and go all Kenwood.  Is there any reason I might regret this?
