From an offroading, on the trail use perspective:

 

Advantages over HAM:

- no exam

- cheaper radios (compared against the Japanese, not the Chinese radios)

 

Advantages over CB:

- better range (although a properly tuned CB should also suffice on the trail)

- better reception clarity (again, a good CB is competitive as well)
