Just wondering if anybody has programmed these and are willing to share a few tips. I am wanting to install the FRS/GRMS frequency's, and a local weather channel. I know to use chirp, I just don't know how. Thanks.

Turns out these aren't very hard to program. Lost of confusion on if they are legal for the use we want.

I used mine for hunting with the mic this season and wow, very impressed for now.
I have maybe 3 miles from the cabin to the spot in deep forest and it's very clear!

FWIW...


If you're looking for a radio you can use without a license, then no, it is not a good radio for that purpose.

This radio is not
Part 90 (commercial land mobile) or Part 95 (FRS/GMRS, etc.) certified.

If you use it as received from the factory, you'll be transmitting on commercial and public safety channels, so could get in a lot of trouble very quickly (with fines exceeding $10,000).

If reprogrammed for ham radio 70cm band and you're licensed, then yes, it can be used legally.

If reprogrammed for FRS, then you'll be illegal due to power levels and the removable antenna.

If reprogrammed for GMRS AND you have a license, then you'll be on shaky ground, but the chance of getting caught is small.

If you're looking for a good "family" radio and don't want to get a license, then stay with FRS radios and stay off the GMRS channels (Channels 15-22 on Motorola radios).

The short answer is that is that it is NOT a good solution for a low cost, LEGAL, easy to use radio for unlicensed family use.

There are no frequencies you can program this radio to for use without a license and remain legal.

Are these rules specific to the US?

SORRY!!!
I did NOT see that you were up north in BC...

What I have seen a lot of lately are guys buying HAM RADIOS to use in the back country because they have a WHOLE LOT more transmitting power, and they work a HECK OF A LOT BETTER. But they are treading on thin ice if they ever get caught for using a HAM radio without a license.

So I toss out these warnings just so the guys know the downside to making that choice in the USA.

Yes, and in Canada you don't even have the right to use it as is! Mine is locked at 2watt. But i read somewhere that regulation is gonna change for these kind of radio.

You know, where i use it, the nearest town is, at least, a 1 hour travel.

I have a Boefang radio Bf f8 it has a stock 7in rubber antenna that is a big upgrade and the radio that has a extended battery and that model makes the radio thicker in the back rather than longer like the Boefang uv5r etc. and am studying for my Ham or amateur radio liscence, not for sledding for fun of long distance commumication etc. If you stay within like the 22 channels of you common handheld public radio you can broadcast without a liscence not different then store bought handhelds or like a Garmin Rino, the cool part of the Boefang and other radios like that is they broadcast at a much higher watts then the cheap handhelds which at usually not over 1 watt radios, 1 -4 watt ham radios are pretty cool and mine is the new one that's less than a $50 radio and I can broadcast 1, 4, and 8 watts, when I take is sledding my buddy with a cobra handheld can hear me good but I have a hardtime hearing him at distance, I also have most my local police, emergency and weather channels programmed in and listen to the weather channel when out in the hills, Get the like 14inch retec or nogoya whip antenna and I just fold them with out kinking and put the radio in my jacket pocket.

you can also buy quick adaptor that screw into the top of the radio and will adapt to a antenna mounted to your vehicle and you can broadcast for miles.

pretty cool stuff.

A precautionary warning is nice, but where is this stern warning in every thread about aftermarket exhausts, turbos, etc? They are just as illegal, and do more harm to our sport than unlicensed radios, but I suppose these unlicensed radios aren't sponsors either....
