    GMRS (General Mobile Radio Service)

    Baofengtech also now has a mobile GMRS radio on the market. It's nice to see a little more competition in this market, hopefully others will jump in and prices may come down some. https://baofengtech.com/gmrs-50x1

    GMRS (General Mobile Radio Service)

    Technically the Baofengs (most) are illegal to use except on ham radio frequencies with the proper license. Please be mindful of the frequencies you are using, I would suggest sticking with the FRS or MURS frequencies. Even the Rugged Radios are programmed with frequencies that you are supposed to have a license to use. The licenses are regional and you can interfere with many entities that are actually licensed for those frequencies. Exmpla: 1 WTHRMN 151.625 2701 Licensed users. Including: Union Pacific, FCA US, Subaru, University of Oklahoma, NM State University, BP, Exxon, Boeing, Vertex standard (Yaesu ham radios), UPS 2 BFGRLY 151.715 1243 Licensed users.

    Cb range

    People have been moving to GMRS and ham radio. Both are better than CB. The only thing CB has going for it is no license required. GMRS does have a $70 license that is good for 10 years and covers your immediate family. A ham license requires a test which typically cost $15 (or sometimes free) and covers YOU for 10 years, free renewal.

    What radio would you recommend for my rig?

    Depends on who you are wanting to talk to and what they use. GMRS is a much better option than CB however most seem reluctant to change. The Cobra 75 CB seems popular as it can easily be disconnected and hidden away when not in use. You would want an external speaker with this unit as well.

    quarter elliptical spring setup

    Old school. @Mark see image below for example. 1/2 a leaf pack turned upside down with a shackle between the end of the spring and axle. Or you can go 3/4 elliptical.

    Toggle set ups

    Looks like I may try to make a switch panel for the ash tray in the later model center consoles.
  10. That's not a CB, that's a GMRS radio (better than CB) and I am sure I could find a place to put another antenna (have 3 already). Also @Mark if you provide this radio or any radio from Midland, order through Midlandusa.com and use overlandusa discount code to save 20%.
  11. Thanks Mark! That would make a great kit, I could hard mount that and wire it into my rear fuse block.
