I want one of those one of these days. The price and the power set up for it are what's in my way. Someday I'll get one.

The cost/benefit analysis for us, giving to our style in extended camping-overlanding it is a worthy expense.

If I was going to go with a pure, part 95E certified GMRS 50w radio, the Wouxun KG-1000G GMRS for $369 would be my pick (a serious GMRS power-user radio). Although when you factor in the programming cable and an antenna, it's not actually cheaper than the Midland MXT500. I also like the detachable head. I really don't want a radio body anywhere in the front of my cab.

 

But I am not going to, because I have other 50w radios that can also do GMRS 😎

When I started wheeling everyone used CB, which was replaced by HAM because of clarity and range issues.  Now GMRS has apparently usurped HAM because of that pesky test, lol!   :)

It's interesting, because up here EVERYBODY still uses CB. 😅 So obviously we're keeping those. I hope my ham radios can be tuned to pick up and transmit GMRS!
