Hey Everyone,

 

I've been a CB'er since Moby Dick was a minnow and learned of GMRS about 12 years ago. Just now getting deeper into it because I recently retired from EMS in Kansas City. I just bought a Midland MX400 to install in my Power Wagon. I've read some comments on here about Midland products, here's to hoping I have better luck. I'd like to know if there are any members that live close so I can put my radio to use. I'll be listening. WRAK287

Welcome! I have to say, I got into GMRS for going Offroad with friends of mine... but this forum has really got me digging into GMRS more and more. The folks here are a pretty good group.

I have several MTX400 radios. 1 had an issue and Midland fixed it in just a few days with a replacement. The only down falls I have found is, its only narrow band and features are minimal. It really seems like a "Welcome to GMRS 101" radio. You should enjoy it... but when the bug bites, you will be looking for an upgrade. LOL

Hey Marc,

What kind of wheeling do you do? My wife and I have a pair of Arctic Cat Wildcat 1000 X's.

I was thinking he meant Grand Wagoneer.    BUT... the old school Power Wagon is pretty kick-butt, too!  LOL

I did Rousch Creek a handful of times. Decent park. I miss Arizona for the wide open wheeling areas. Pennsylvania is getting to be too built out. Plus the jerks who dump garbage in the woods and destroy things. Wrecks it for everyone.

Agreed!  My daughter lives in AZ.  It's awesome out there.  Rausch Creek is about the best it gets on the east coast.  It's pretty sad how people ignore "pack it in, pack it out".  You are right; it just spoils it for others.

I miss being out west. Almost unlimited wheeling. And generally people took care of what we had. OHV parks arent my cup of tea but thats all we have in Texas. Public land is a rarity here. I spend a lot of time in Arkansas around the Ouachita Ntl Forrest.
