Are you looking for a handheld or a mobile?

Looking mostly for a handheld, but eventually want to put a mobile in my vehicles as well.

Most quality radios are offset capable, However for GMRS you might want to consider a radio radio is part95 certified and offset capable.

Check out the Baofeng GMRS-V1 for a decent handheld radio. It's a pretty good radio for about $55 shipped from Amazon.

And, it's type accepted and therefore 100% legal.

Awesome! I'll check that one out. I'll also make sure to look for the Part 95 certification and offset capability. Thanks!

You could do like I do as well. When I'm in my car I hook my Handheld up to a mobile antenna, at least until you find a good mobile radio that you like.

The GMRS-V1 has both, so you will be good to go there.
