Smoky said:My wife and I use the non license radios and they work great for our needs.? We can usually reach from one end of a shopping center to the other.? More importantly, when we are in the same store, we can locate each other.? If I am in the MH and the Admiral is at the pool, we always can reach each other.? Have not tried it at a rally, but being outdoors improves reception, so it should work.? We see no need at the present time to go the GMRS route.
