Use of radio's on small-lightweight expeditions

No matter how we try to scale our weight down to under 40 pounds while alpine climbing, I always bring a small 'Maxon' type radio; especially when there are loved ones waiting at a basecamp, or even a high camp. The connections that can be maintained will raise the moral of the entire expedition ten fold, and this can be worth its weight in gold!
