Now that the fcc has changed the rules reguarding frs/gmrs, the bca as all other type accepted radios, are now obsolete. The new rules allow higher power and data. Which means, all manufacturers will be able to do location information from user to user.

And how does that make the BCA radios obsolete?

I guess one needs to understand the meaning of obsolete.
There are lots of things considered obsolete that are still in daily use. Like my 1st gen dodge Cummins. It is obsolete but, it still works as designed. Obsolete does not mean dead. It means out dated, superseded.....

Bought 3 BCA radios on Black Friday. Got to use them yesterday for the first time. Far from impressed. When they did work, the distances had to be almost line of sight. Less than 1/4 mile. Most of the time none of us could hear a complete sentence. The mic confirmation beep was random. Had high hopes. Now have no confidence. We all busted out our $29 costco radios and worked as expected.

We've been using BCA radios for 3 seasons and they are very good and have good range. You do have to push the mic transmit button for a second before speaking or you sentence will be cut short.
IMO best radio for Sledder's.

I've had similar experiences with poor range and unable to make contact with group members that where not very far away. Overall radio is designed well for sledders but range and the fact it can be accidentally switched to a different channel needs to be improved upon to make it the "ultimate" snowmobiling communication device.
