    Truick Mobile - Retevis RT-95

    What to install? That's the question. After culling through many sources, I decided to go with a ham radio as the installed mobile, backed up with GMRS and CB handhelds. I figure this is the best combination for interoperability with club runs, and functionality in remote areas. I settled on...

    Why you need to buy a quality Handheld (Portable) radio.

    There seems to be a constant dialogue on the forum about radio communications and what type of radio to purchase and what platform to get such as CB, FRS, GMRS & Ham.

    Ham Radios - What's a solid set up?

    So I've been using the BaoFang handhelds for a while, and they work great! Recently I've taken interest to getting more of a permanent set up in the rig. I'm curious to what everyone is running and their experiences. Any advice is great. Thanks!

    Summits On The Air

    Some one asked me what SOTA is, so I did a brief description. I thought I would expand it a bit here, as it could tie into Overlanding, IMO. Summits On The Air Website Governmental Geological Surveys have qualifying parameters of what a summit is. As summiting is an activity, so is operating...

    Hi guys, I know a lot of you may have (or be interested in picking up) a Baofeng handheld radio such as the UV-5R for cheap effective/quality FM voice communications, but may not totally understand what they're capable of, the radio services they can support, or how to properly configure them...

    Ham Radio License Experience

    Ok, after joining the OB community at Off the Grid 2016 I realized I needed more than just a CB radio. There were multiple methods of comms going on that day and at least having a handheld ham radio, I could at least listen to the other half of the groups comms. I was able to relay some...
