Thanks! A bit more about me… I have been wanting to get into GMRS for a while. I have my ham license, and I also work 11m, but my better half does not want to get a ham license, so I figured on putting GMRS in our vehicles and house. It will be nice not hitting drive through canopies in town with my 11m antenna! I still need to get a license for GMRS, but as of now, I havent even purchased the radios yet. I would love to use some of the existing radios I have, but I am not sure if the type acceptance covers them for GMRS. I have some old motorolas and kenwoods that I’ve taken off the business band and used on amateur frequencies and I would really like to use my TK-805D (as it has the field programmer chip in it) for GMRS. Gotta see if thats legal to do first…

Other than that, I do have a little experience with electronics and building antennas. I do have an old UHF celwave duplexer that I would like to use for a gmrs repeater, but thats a project for summer. I will hopefully have my GMRS license by then.
