Looking at getting back into backcountry exploring/offroading/overlanding now that the kiddos are old enough to tolerate and potentially enjoy it. Was looking at putting the trusty ol' Bearcat CB back into the Jeep or truck, but after some research, it looks like most folks have made the move to GMRS. I went ahead paid for my FCC GMRS license and ordered a Midland MXT275 to start out with. During my research, it looks like there is somewhat of a cult following of the GMRS stuff - there are even repeater networks you can get hooked into - and surprisingly, it looks like HAM is still chugging along in the darkness. Anyone here tinkering (or more) with GMRS or HAM these days? Just for clarification, the HAM I'm talking about is the radio kind - not the porky goodness that is best served on a warm biscuit.
