G'day folks,
I was just wondering what HT stands for. I take it it's a hand held transmitter. Would that be correct? Down Under we refer to them as HH.

To thoroughly beat the subject to death, 'Handie Talkie' was (maybe still is) a trademarked name for Motorola portable radios.  If you look at some of the old Motorola portable radios from the 60's they all say "Handie Talkie FM Radio", even the "luggable" radios with a handle at the top were called Handie Talkies.  Now the term is ubiquitous, like Kleenex.
