I have a diamond X50A antenna on my roof that is used Fordham radio (440-450mhz). My question is, can I use this as a base for gmrs? I know it is out of freq but really don't want another antenna on roof.
Thanks for any replies

I think autocorrect got you here, GMRS->games

Sorry, can't comment on a specific antenna because I do not own it. However, if your transmitter power amplifier can handle the SWR (combined feedline + antenna), you absolutely can.
