I use the Baofeng UV-5R and a Wouxon KG-UV6D. I use the Baofeng as a transmit radio and the Wouxon for receive. The Wouxon has a freq knob on top of the radio. Makes changing frequencies so easy. I have to say I love the Baofeng. For the $28 (with shipping) it is a solid radio.  I have used this two radio setup with my arrow for a few months and have had zero issues. 

Good luck
