I've started working on the radio setup for GMRS/Ham operations.**Put in a Compactenna based on local feedback here from Ham Radio Outlet in town and lots of the local offroaders.**So far the reception and transmission is good, now I need to figure out what I want to do with a dedicated radio install.
I’m just running a cheap HT to test reception with the new setup until I can figure out what I want to do for a real radio in the cab.
I will say with the Compactenna I can hit GMRS repeaters 10 miles away pretty easily with a 5W HT.

I did a bit of looking around for info on this little guy. In doing so, I ran across a forum post about it on qrz.com.. Those people, I swear, argue like they are a bunch of young teens who know everything and everyone else is stupid. They all seem like overgrown children. SMDH..
