Hi guys, I'm a newbie when it comes to 2 way radios in general, I've done a lot of reading educating myself and I have learned a lot, The first thing I did was to get my GMRS license, here is the deal... I have a pair of vertex 160u that I use to communicate with my daughters (too little for cellphone plus is more fun) when I go to the grocery store or to my uncle's house located about 1.50 miles away from my house, the radios work well. I just bought a Kenwood 805d to get a little more range but I need help choosing an antenna , power supply and any connector and cable I may need, if you guys could help me with some advice I would greatly appreciated. I know is not going to be easy, that is what makes it fun. Thank you. William.
I use Kenwood 805D radios for comunication between my house, shop, and trucks. I also use a realistic HT on my atv when I am around town or out at the farm 1 mile away. I am located so rural that I only ocasionaly hear anyone other than my family on any of the GMRS frequencys. With my shop antenna at 8' obove ground I can reach out 10 + miles to my truck. I have used this equiptment for several years. I have had Zero problems withth is equiptment. I am planing on setting up a radio at my father in laws house a couple of blocks away due to poor to no cell service and his health and age requires better communication. Land line phone is out of the budget. I highly recoment the kenwood 805D radios. One major advantage is the fact that they are front panel programable.
