nice and informative forum folks. I still don't have my license application approved by FCC (applied only yesterday) but came to know my wife has ordered a btech gmrs v1 radio for me to get started.

 

Anyone with any experience or use this particular radio? Note I have no prior radio experience and looking to learn more about radio transmissions as a hobby. Thank you

Baofeng/Pofung makes good solid radios, this particular radio is designed to be GMRS Part 95 certified and I believe is a very wise choice for a beginner.

appreciate your quick reply. I am mildly aware that part95 cert radios are not very common on gmrs but why exactly is that the case? I am to the hobby and have a ton of newbie questions. Thanks

I received the radio is evening. Seems like a solid built unit. I've only listened to NOAA and some FM transmissions as I'm still waiting for my call sign. Radio seems a bit overwhelming for a true beginner

I recommend getting high quality antenna for it too. I was testing my GMRS v1 out, and it wasn't getting a signal from my repeater. I put on the antenna from my TERA TR 505, and it worked so much better, even though the antennas are the same height!
