    Went to Home Depot today to get some plywood and stuff.
    That has got to be some of the finest lumber I've ever seen.

    If it’s a who sounds the most like a dump truck contest, I win. With the new trans this thing literally sounds like a heavy duty truck. I’m in 3rd by the time I’m through an intersection when the light turns green

    Looking for some input here.

    What kind of set ups are you guys running for trail comms? Cheap ham HT, dual band mobile rig, digital radios with aprs?

    In reality I wouldn't be using a ham that often, but I've been doing some research and the SMSGTE texting type functions peaked my interest. The people who I camp with don't have radios, and I'd like a way to contact them when I'm out of cell service, but I'm not familiar with how widespread of coverage there is with the right digital repeaters in different parts of the state. Wondering if anyone has any experience is that department.

    Thanks.

    I have used my Kenwood d710g to text my wife from a variety of places and was surprised she got them...

    Its a nice radio that does aprs and is dual band.

    I'm running a Radioddity DB20-G mobile GMRS with a ghost antenna that I've really enjoyed. I also bring 4 FRS handhelds for anyone in my group that doesn't have a radio.

    What hasn't been modified?
    Yeasu ftm-400
    As well as @Coop68 @bot102 soon to be @Red Baron

    I’ve sent and received messages through it.
    the 710g is better for using a tablet to upload aprs packets. But the ftm has a built incolor touch screen.
    Both are dual band and aprs

    How do you like the user interface? I was looking at that radio and another brand that is basically the same. I saw a couple reviews that made it seem like it wasn't very user friendly. The price point on that is closer to what I want to spend rather than a yeasu or Kenwood, since it won't get a lot of use.

    I'm my research it seems there are a variety of digital repeater 'providers'. For the ones that allow digital messaging, do you have to use a separate process depending on the provider, or can you use one method across any digital repeater? For example, SMSGTE.

    I've been a CB user for years so this was a big step up in functions. It was a little bit to get used to but I don't think I'd be any better off with other radios. The biggest thing for me was just learning how GMRS frequencies and codes work(went deep down the youtube rabbit hole) and then it was a breeze.
