Guest KC2GIU Posted January 9, 2021 Report Share Posted January 9, 2021 Took 19 tries to get a message to post. Color blinded people can't read the colored Capcha. One or two letters or numbers can not be determined. Even the refreshing doesn't help at all. OK, seeing I can now post, I hope, I need a radio with dual use. FRS+GMRS and Ham 70CM band. Being a ham for well over 40 years mostly on 2M, 10M and 40M with use of voice or data or CW, life circumstances tends to change how one uses radio. In my area, 2M is nearly dead, both repeaters or simplex. My kids have FRS, the neighbors all FRS and one has GMRS up the road. With that said, I'm the odd one out of the chit-chat. Are there radios with dual use? Ham 70CM and the FRS+GMRS. And to remain in the FCC rules of power wattage output on the frequencies of the FRS+GMRS realm. Additionally is there a radio with the CTCSS and DCS functionality as well. Basically I would like something that covers an ALL-in-One approach. My plan is to have a GMRS license and a 50W radio mobile for dual use even in the Ham allocated 70cm (440). It's not dual band because the two radio services are basically right next to each other. Sure, Ham side could go higher in wattage, but the vehicle battery gets taxied too much. Plus, Ham is secondary use in that band anyway. So, rather than spend countless hours poking around on the web, what is the understanding of a solution for an ALL-in-One radio? SteveKC2GIU PS, if I don't reply soon enough, it's because I can not make out the colored capcha and get too frustrated. Purples, browns, reds, dark orange are a washed out mess. Can't make out any of it. There are capchas out there just B&W that work wonderfully. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
