Anak - do you know about the radios or no? If not, you're not adding value. Learn what GMRS license covers before you post.

Gmrs license covers you and your immediate family and has better coverage then frs due to higher ourput being allowed. Also not gives you access to repeater networks in certain areas.

Now back to my question - any radio recommendations from those that use it?

Learning was precisely the purpose of my question.

Re: Baofeng? GMRS that's inexpensive?

You want to learn? Google or start a separate thread. Getting back to the question at hand: to those that use GMRS - which radios do you use? How do you like them?
