Totally Newb, but thinking about buying my first HAM/GMRS radio.  I *think* I've narrowed it down to the 5rm or ar-5rm but I'm not sure the differences.


Best I can tell the ar-5rm can Tx on low/med/high whereas the 5rm can not.


Any help much appreciated.

The 5RM also does air band and is a triband.


My 5RM came unlocked fresh out of the box, plug in freqs and you're off.


I've found 1 discussion alluding that the AR-5RM is firmware locked to ham freqs and can't be opened up. Otherwise I'm pretty sure they're the exact same radio.
