    In the rookie pile myself. This looks like it has at least some potential.

    so would you trust your life on a $25 Jenkins? How about a rubber band instead of a CAT-T? Will it get the job done? Yes, but it is as big a danger of letting you down when you need it most as is it of helping you.

    Please, I did start a Commo thread so you guys can learn from. Be careful of the actions you take, while not as severe as the gun laws, comms laws DO come with some hefty fines and jail time too.

    Please be careful, are you offering to cut this guy's barrel down for him????? The same consequences can apply, please make sure you give him the legal guidance, not how to walk in the Grey Area.

    GMRS ALL
    MURS 1-3
    MURS BLUE DOT
    MURS GREEN DOT
    HAM 70CM CALL
    HAM 2M CALL
    NOAA 1-9 (This has had the transmit ability disabled. Absolutely no accidental broadcasts on those freqs lol)
    Are you offering to cut down this guy's barrel for him? making an illegal SBR? Baoefeg is NOT Type classed for FRS, GMRS or MURS, License is required for the HAM Frequencies, if he's not a Licensed HAM Operator, you have opened HIM and YOU up for Fines, and Jail Time. Would you show someone how to Violate firearms laws, why are you doing it with commo laws?? There ARE ways to do this legally (Like limiting the ability to transmit) so please show him how that is done

    I understand and I'll give the guidance the best I can. Not to be a wise guy but who's doing what enforcement on this? Now I understand that if one is ignorant or trespasses on someone's repeater they could get nabbed but if a guy has a couple of Baofengs and uses them on GMRS freqs with his family, who's to know? How's he going to get nabbed?

    Good and valid question, while enforcement is minimal, there are people out there who LOVE to go "Fox hunting" and tracking people using these unlawfully. In fact Flagger Force has had an FCC complaint filed against them for using these radios and frequencies, since they are a bigger company and offender, I expect bigger fines.

    I know you well enough that you would tell someone looking to carry with out a license you'd tell them there are ways, but do it the right way, this is in no way different, other than it's a radio and not a firearm.
