I was traipsing round the woods yesterday looking for a downed UAV and, after finding the UAV and carrying it back to our AO, my GRMS radio fell out of my pocket somewhere along the way.
So, I’m looking for recommendations for a replacement.
There are so many vendors, I don’t know what where to start.
As far as requirements…
- size: would like smaller to facilitate portability
- reception: would like as top quality reception for the money
- price: between $50 and $150 for the set
I’ve seen Motorola, Garmin, Midland, Cobra, … many options.
Lastly, should I abandon GRMS and get a HAM license?
Does anyone know of a review site?
M.U.R.S and you dont need a FCC license like H.A.M. or G.R.M.S. H.A.M only does you good if the people you talk to also have a license.
Short term pick up a Midland. I've been getting better results from them than Motorola.
