hahah holy crap, thats HUGE! Better be able to play local FM tunes for the entire weekend if it's going to be replacing valuable road soda space :LOL:
Its TALL and certainly HIGH GAIN, which should both play a major role in getting better coverage when we are separated in the backcountry.
Lots more testing still to be done.

1. How’s testing and use going?
2. Do you know if this radio meets the Part 95 requirement for GMRS radios?
3. Does that antenna get unfurled when riding?
4. How are the in-helmet speakers? I don’t hear as well as I did in my youth.

The radios seem to work just fine.
But I will need MOAR of them to equip all the guys that I ride with so we are all using the same hardware.

These are HAM RADIOS, not GMRS.

You can keep the antenna folded or unfolded as you see fit.
The aditional reception / transmission gain comes from the total length of the antenna, not just from it being in a straight line.

I have NOT played with the in-Helmet speaklers/mic as yet
