VX‑2200 radio questions

So, First post from a long time lurker. I am extremely active on the local volunteer search and rescue team, and we use the channel SPEN-4, 153.7850, exclusively. We often use our private vehicles on jobs, or just transporting in the "convoy" to a job with unit vehicles. Since I have the offroad vehicle of choice, i tend to bring by Jeep along frequently. So I was looking at radios for personal use to wire up in the Jeep but I want a radio that would be capable of the 153.7850 VHF that we use for the unit. I found the VX-2200 radio and it is VHF and is capable of our frequency, but does this radio also work on normal citizens band? I dont want to have 2 radios wired up, just one for the normal CB and when needed I can switch to our channel. Does anyone have a suggestion for a radio that would work for my needs?

Thanks in advance,

That radio is strictly VHF, it will not work on CB frequencies.
What you are looking for does not exist and is not legal to make. CB radios are limited to transmit only on the 40 CB frequencies. They cannot have any other transmit capabilities.
You will need two radios.

Just because you're offended, doesn't mean you're right.
