I had real good luck with UNIDEN vhf radios 

 

uniden model um 415 $129.99 at cabelas

uniden hand held model 250  $89.99 cabelas 

 

what makes the radio is the ANTENNA I found it pays to use a antenna with a brass rod inside not a cheeper model which would have a coaxle  cable inside a good one is Shakespeare

  1. Just a little FYI on marine radios . Any vessel that has a marine radio (VHF) aboard is required by law to have it on and monitor channel 16 for emergency broadcasts .

They work great on land from what I'm told. They are programmable and have lots of extras very cheap too because they are made in China but for some reason they are made well.

Is it handheld? I dont have a lot of room to mount a full size.

No. It's one you would need to mount.
