  • Citizen Band ( CB) or General Mobile Radio Service (GMRS)

    I'm needing to replace my cb. So I'd like to get a feel for how many people who regularly go on club jeep trips are using gmrs.

    Decided to go ahead and get a GMRS license. FCC approved my application in less than 24hrs. Looks like my $25 Baofeng UV5R can transmit and receive most of the GMRS frequencies. Looking forward to that FM clarity.

      Just sent in my application. I see how quick they approve. I have a Baofeng BF-F8HP.

              Hand held got about 2.5 miles. May have been better with a mag mount antenna on top of the car. It was clearer than CBs setting in eye sight on flat level ground. Glad I got my license.

                One advantage of handheld radios for off-roaders, is that Spotters can communicate directly into the cab of Drivers to direct them though obstacles.

                  Made my first repeater contact today. Now to learn the repeater setup on the radio to use more repeaters. We don't have any close to Kilgore/Longview area. Trying to learn more each time I am out.

                    Found out that from my office I can get in the Longview and Tyler repeaters. Joy of being on the 5th floor.
