dogfish, Did you ever decide what your next step will be? Any other questions you have? Anyone else have any, "HAMMY", things to talk about? This seems like a good topic to keep going!

New radio that has GPS too. A bit pricier, but with GPS, programing cable, and two batteries not too bad:

Not mentioned in the 5 watt vs 8 watt discussion: heat and duty cycle. The tiny HTs can only dissipate so much heat, and you might run into issues with higher wattages if you expect to be a heavy user.

I had a 5 watt handheld and during long conversations, it became too hot to hold. Aside from that, if you key up for too long on a radio with a short duty cycle, you risk burning out the components. The Baofengs are good value for the money, so I hear, but an ICOM or Yaesu is likely to handle more abuse.

I know it is an old thread, but technology changes. Also RB these radios are not made/designed for long term usage. I think for what they do, and what they cost, and if you know their limitation they are a good value.

PL = CTCSS, by default, you'll hear it without a tone set.



You should have a digital scanner so you can monitor https://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?sid=6949 but Comanche county currently uses https://www.radioreference.com/apps/db/?sid=844

453.9 is deprecated.

Deprecated – This tag denotes a frequency or talkgroup that is no longer used. This tag should be used only temporarily during transition/migration periods for new radio systems. Frequencies and talkgroups should be deleted when they are truly obsolete.
