New Licensee here in San Antonio, Texas

 

Lic issued today, still waiting for this site API to update so I can register.

 

Got two 805G's ordered and hopefully BTWR can get them shipped Monday.

You'll really like those radios.

I'm very happy with mine.

 

Do realize that if you are on a repeater and too close (throwing distance) to your contact one radio will desensitize the other one.

This is pretty normal with anything but the most expensive radios.

Even ham stuff would have the problem.

 

There are some nice antennas that are worth having.

The Nagoya 771G is a 14" flexible antenna.

The Smiley Super Stick for 465MHz is a telescoping antenna that can be used either fully retracted or fully extended.

 

I also like having a BNC adapter so I can use a mag mount in the car.

Many ham band 70cm/440Mhz antennas are a decent match with GMRS.

So lots to pick from.

Hi Vince,

   Yes, I'm very happy with those 805G. So much so I went a bought the KG-1000G the 50w big brother and set it up with a dual band whip as a base at the house for now. I'm getting out good to the La Vernia 550 repeater that's about 16 miles from me. The HTs I think can break squelch but not really get audio that far.  The repeater owner is moving the antenna up a bit further as soon as weather permits (maybe today he said) and I will try those HTs around town and see how they do. I probably need to set up a whip on the truck and connect the HT. Maybe as soon as a decide on a proper base antenna I can move my whip mount from the home office to the truck.
