Re: Franco

Assuming you are in the US, here is a link to the US Coast Guard Marine Navigation web page. It really doesn't address your question, however. I would suggest you find a boating forum or two and...

Re: baofong uv6-r

The Baofeng radios are a bit of Catch-22 for new hams. They're attracted to the radios because of the price point, but when they get them, they discover they are a ****** to program, partly because...

Re: Antenna on hill to handheld radio system

I'm thinking the OP is probably in the UK as he gave his distances in Km.

Since we've determined the use of Marine radios is out of the question, either a GMRS (or the UK equivalent) or an...

Re: Antenna on hill to handheld radio system

I think the one thing that would be most helpful at this juncture would be knowing where you're located.

I know there are some restrictions on land-based use of marine VHF frequencies in the US...

Re: Fcc license question

If the Walmart radios are truly GMRS radios, then you need a GMRS license from the FCC. There is no examination for the license, but the license fee is somewhere in the vicinity of $70. If you get...

Re: What radios do you use?

Just out of curiosity, why do you say the Yaesu FT-8900R is junk? I just bought a used one and it's doing everything I asked of it. I just used it to run net control for a county-wide hospital...

Re: UV-5R5 Stops Receiving

If the store requires you to have a radio, then it's their responsibility to provide you with one that operates properly.

Re: Total Newbie

Amateur license and ham license are the same thing. "Ham" is just a slang nickname for an amateur radio operator.

Re: Total Newbie

If he's using the radios for a volunteer "town watch" he could probably get by with an amateur license (assuming he's in the US.) It would fall under the public service portion of the regs. Many...
