Anyone know anything about the Kenwood NX-800HK? Thinking about using it as a gmrs mobil unit, any thoughts would be helpful.

Just to add to JohnE's post - The model that you mentioned is primarily a digital radio with analog capabilities. Digital voice transmission is not allowed on GMRS and there are features in that radio that could not be used legally on GMRS frequencies.  The Kenwood TK880-1, TK880H-1, TK863G, and others mentioned by JohnE would be excellent choices and they are Type Certified for Part 95 operation.
