Handheld VHF?

Can someone recommend a budget-friendly compact VHF handheld for Laser racing? Just looking for something small in order to hear race committee radio traffic.
Thanks,
Mark

Perhaps not legal with regard to sanctioned events, national competitions, etc. I'm just racing in our local lake club and helps to be in touch. I have a large Standard Horizon handheld now that's just too bulky so looking for something useful, reasonable cost and most importantly small.

The same rules apply at every level. Listening to any radio communication during a race breaks both the "outside assistance" rule and the class rule prohibiting electronic equipment.

It's whole another matter if the race committee intentionally uses a channel for competitor information, but that's only done in boats the size of a Lightning and up.
