midland gxt800vp4 vs midland g-11

Hi which is better for range. I read that no frs/gms or whatever radio can use a external antenna but I was reading on the midland g-11 that you can change to a better and longer antenna and someone said these are under $90? Which would be better for range ect…?

The antenna restriction is a limitation of FRS radios, not GMRS. FRS radios are required to have a fixed antenna. Since most “bubble pack” GMRS radios are dual service (support FRS and GMRS) they have lower quality, non removable antennas.

I don’t know too much about the Midland G-11. I’m pretty sure it isn’t a current model, and I thought it had been discontinued years ago.
