  1. What's new in this club
  2. ATTN: All South Georgia GMRS repeaters are on the air! Antenna work for SGA-700-WEST LOWNDES is now complete! The repeater is now operational. Hope to hear you soon! Thanks, Scott Haner WRFS362
  3. Hi! Sorry... I was just going through the club messages this evening and saw this one I had not responded to. Yes there are a few of the Chinese units out there for sale at low cost. They do work ok but do have some learning curve when it comes to programming. I personally like used commercial Kenwood radios like the TK-863, TK-880, or the TK-8180 which as newer model radio. If you shop you can usually find one at reasonable prices. From time to time the South GA GMRS group has used radios for sale to help offset the cost of keeping up the repeater systems in the are. Thanks, Scott Haner WRFS-362
  4. I'm researching new radios. Specifically, I'm looking for a 50W to use as either (and/or both) stationary and mobile. I was looking at the BTECH GMRS-50V2, 50W. Any thoughts, suggestions, comments? I appreciate any help you can provide.
