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.
