    Yeah, but at a certain point they lose some of the fancier capability, the one Dan runs is dual band which allows him to use APRS on one channel and simplex communication on the other. And of course you can do even fancier things with repeaters and iGates.

    A lot of my buddies use this, only probably we’ve had is in my friends SXS, something interferes like crazy.

    I have an icom in thats in about the same price range now, and I use a mag mount antenna.

    These actually work half way decent with the bigger battery

    But I’ve never even heard of that stuff, which I guess means I probably don’t need it.

    Cadillacs are very common cars around here. There are hundreds of them at my local junkyard. When I have help, it takes over two hours to comb through ONLY the GM sedan section.

    We have 'em all. BMW, Mercedes, Audi, Toyota, Honda, Range Rover, Ford, GM, etc etc etc. You can find just about any car you want here. My local yard has thousands of cars.

    I've had old caddies, they're just fine and easy to fix being old and huge like most American stuff. Now an old european car, those are junk 5 years later. Only Merc I'll ever want is a 300TD or just 300D

    Here's an example of how massive these places are.

    Just get a new gate from Rock Auto and have Maaco shoot it IJM, cost less $300 and be perfect. Finding a tailgate from these trucks is hard

    That's because the 5.7 diesel was the biggest flop GM ever engineered, there was only one caddy to ever receive it too. That engine is rare now, but damn was it completely awful, it was just a reinforced gas motor and was all wrong for diesel.

    That's probably a great radio, but man, it's :spending:. Check out the Kenwoods - the TM-D710G and TM-V71A. Both are dual band, and will let you do APRS while talking on another channel.

    Even though I have the D710G, I use it like a V71A (I don't use the built-in APRS, instead favoring a Mobilinkd for APRS).

    You can often get the D710G for ~$450 from Amazon warehouse. Or, save even more and get the V71A. Personally, the V71A seems like the best bang for the buck to me (across all brands/radios).
