I’ve been doing much research to replace my FMRS radios which have poor range and found this great website.
For backpacking would I be better off getting an inexpensive GMRS radio like Midland GXT 900 rated at 5 watts or a 2 watt VHF commerical radio and utitlize the MURS frequency? I am considering Tekk XV-100 which is the lightest and least expensive VHF I can find ! Probably also use it on the ski slopes.
If I go the MURS route and buy a 2 watt VHF commercial radio and use it only on the MURS frequencies do I need a license? Not sure if the radio has to be 95 certified or not.
Thanks in advance for your help! Jeff
