    Do any of you have 2-3 FRS radios that I can borrow for a week (next week, White Rim Trail)?

    I haven't had time to get my HAM license and its even harder to convince ALL my friends to get one, so I won't be able to legally operate the Baofeng set I have. Let's not divert into the "just use it anyway" discussions, as that's not the point.
    Side note: I just realized this morning that GMRS requires a $70/10-year license!

    You could quickly set your baofengs to low power and one FRS frequency and lock them so no channel switching could be done. While not type accepted your output numbers would not warrant any thoughts from anyone who might be of concern. Honestly, FRS has gone the way of CB where the FCC doesn't even look into active enforcement. Like CB only those that purposefully jam/clog the band with high power and intentional harm are pursued. Case in point, look at Rugged Radios marketing/target

    Yeah, I don't have a windows machine and last time I tried to program my Baofeng, I couldn't get the drivers to work on Mac, so I moved on from programming it FRS/GMRS frequencies.

    If I had a burner windows laptop, I'd give it a try on that to see if the malware drivers that are out there would work.

    Never enough
    Just type in the frequency. You don’t need to program it for simple person to person comms on FRS.

    Have you tried wearing sunglasses when you program it?

    :rofl::rofl::rofl:

    I told myself I was going to get licensed many years ago. Didn't. Now I just use the baofengs similar to a CB or two-way walkie when I'm offroad or hunting. If someone really wants to track me down in the middle of nowhere, be my guest.

    Hey, Colorado folks.

    Can you all tell me about SWCO in June? Are most of the passes/trails going to be open? I was more curious about Black Bear Pass in general.

    Usually no, 4th of July is always their target for getting all the passes opened up.

    For those needing tires.
    Not as good as past sales but it is what it is.

    Edit- Same deal at Discount stores.

    I like those better than the screw type that strip before they get tight.
