I searched but found mostly stuff about more high level radio stuff. I’m looking for “got this off Amazon and love it” kind of gear. Prepared to spend more than $20 bucks on not a toy, but don’t really need to spend $250 know what I mean?

I figure there have to be people with a solid middle ground or even stupid low cost high reliability for the use case situations. I could go off general online reviews, but I’d rather hear what y’all have to say.

So. Recommendations?

For short distances, the entry-level midland gets the job done. GMRS instead of CB, but that’s where things are headed now-a-days.

There are Midland radios with more output power capabilities, but these don’t require a no-code license. Just a (10 years) GMRS license for $70.

The cheaper Baofengs are also popular, but are full HAM radios and do require a license (to operate certain radio freqs)

And tonight I learned about Walkie talkie Licenses. What a world. Would be my third new license since the Bronco was announced lol (Realtor 2020, drone 2021, Walkie talkie riding into 2022?)

This is what I'm going with. Multi pack, so if someone else needs one while you travel you can let them borrow it.

Midland - X-TALKER T51VP3, 22 Channel FRS Two-Way Radio - Extended Range, 38 Privacy Codes, NOAA Weather Alert (3 Pack) (Black/Orange) https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B07CTBD...abc_9XC4MSQF57BSYNFEYRFZ?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
@AcenTitus Pete, if you ask Ashley @618TRVLWILD nice, maybe she'll get you a thorough review of the linked product. She is heading out to Moab and she better not forget her radios. By the way, they were bought from Midland using Chase Gentry's affiliate discount code (It was on his YouTube channel).

I think it is Adventure Overland on IG. The YouTube video was their recent trail rides after Super Cel West.
Lol holy crap I actually just watched this video earlier tonight. I enjoyed the first half but had to switch it off for a phone call. Loved seeing what the stock OBX had in it! Makes me feel extra comfy with my BD
