Howdy :slight_smile:

I live in remote Idaho where cell phones only work if you are on a high peak or ridge as I am surrounded by mountains. There is no cell service on our ranch.

I will search the forum to see if my question has been previously discussed.


Hi Bill - what is your question?

I bought Midland GXT900 FRS radios to communicate with ranch workers. They always cut in and out because contact is lost if constant HARD pressure is not kept on the recessed transmit button. With old weak fingers they are worthless. I need a radio with an EASY to hold down transmit button. Any ideas?


use a remote microphone - the buttons on those are much lighter, and you keep the radio on the belt. Theyโ€™re cheap too!

Thank you! :slight_smile:
