Well, I bent the knee and ordered a GRMS radio.  Scheduled to be here on Saturday.

The pain and shame will subside my friend. 😆 What did you go with?

Our group here has found a way to set the midland MTX275 car mobile to privacy code on 22 that will/should (filter out) other long range chatter and will work with the Midland handheld unit set on 41. 

 

I have instructions if you want them. Pretty simple.
We are testing it out on a group ride to Parachute Hill tomorrow .

We used this set up today on a ride to Parachute Hill.  
“ Perfect”. No outside chatter over a 7 hour period.  
The ride area was near I-17. 

After the privacy code is set on the vehicle mobile; the hand held units have channels that work with it.  You can select any channel on the mobile. 
example: 

MOBIL            Privacy code   31 

HANDHELD    Channel 41

 

I CAN SEND A FULL EXPLANATION ON HOW TO PROGRAM IT.

privacy codes are useful - but we have a lot of members that aren't even comfortable with how to set the correct frequency!

I certainly get it about the learning curve.  All our members are all "seniors”,  but once the setting is done it never needs to be done again. 
A bigger complication we found was that folks with (non Midland hardware)  have a little different programming process.  
The handheld units only need to be set to channel 41.  Thats it.

I get that privacy codes are the elegant and sexy solution, but do I want to mess with them?  Not really.....  I think just switching channels or frequencies if there is a lot of 'chatter' is easy and works almost as well.
