yes. That exact unit. If you’re running with a group with a bunch of handhelds, you can actually operate that unit as repeater, extending the range of the portables. So much less static. Great little radios.
The Motorola is a GMRS like we were discussing earlier. You need an FCC license but it's quick and easy to get. Should work for what you want to do.Anyone have experience with handheld radios? I don't want/need a CB or stationary unit, but something I can use in and out of vehicle, or while camping. Any recommendations?
Was looking at Motorola T260 or Baofang UV5RA...
No need for FCC license as the Motorola is under 2W.The Motorola is a GMRS like we were discussing earlier. You need an FCC license but it's quick and easy to get. Should work for what you want to do.
The Baofeng is a Ham radio so you'd need to take a test to get your license.
The only portable CB I can think of is the Midland 75-822. There's probably more, I just don't know about them.
Well, this would be a good use of one of the aux switches on the BD. Looking at some of the reviews at the link it should be easy to hide one of these away.
I was close with some of the driver's that I wasn't related to at a mail contractor I worked at. If I was off and saw them radio shenanigans ensued . Even after I left we would put out calls to each other occasionally.Back in high school that was the way all my buds and I kept in contact when we were out and about. I know- I am old. No cell phones back then.
Certainly thinking about it for this new rig though. I don't have any recommendations but will be interested to see what people share.
That article is basically saying buy a ham radio and use it illegally...Quick article on off-road radios...
