    I’d say if you’re going to get into it go ahead and invest in a decent dual band DMR radio to begin with. You can get the Alinco DJ-MD5 for $148 right now and with a technician license talk all over the world with the DMR side on it. It also works for local DMR or the regular analog repeaters. With a little hotspot that connects to WiFi you can basically have a repeater anywhere there’s WiFi for DMR. A plus with DMR is it doesn’t matter where we all are we can talk to each other on it. I talk to Max a good bit when he connects to our local DMR repeater or I can use the hotspot and talk to him anywhere. The hotspots run about $105. You don’t have to have one to start with though, you can add it later.

    Interesting. I'm on the fence between HAM and CB at the moment. Mostly for Trail Comms but also I want to be able to reach out in an emergency if I'm up in the mountains.

    Ham can be setup to transmit further than a cb. I’ve hit repeaters over 40 miles away with my mobile. Main thing is the terrain you’ll be in how any setup will work. With trail comms it’s a matter of what the other people use. Cb’s are cheap to add in the truck if you want both. I know around my area if I call an emergency on a repeater someone’s jumping on right then. CB around here would be a toss up. Just depends really on what you want out of the setup. Would you want to reach out and have conversations with people all over the world and local or just want trail comms. I think one or two of the repeaters here are still connected to make phone calls on too.

    Also in the mountains unless you’re up high neither one will do much good probably unless there’s someone in the area or with ham if there’s a repeater on top of one of them that covers the valley.

    My mobile has a feature called cross and repeat that I can use outside of the truck with my handheld. I transmit with the low powered ht back to the truck and the trucks radio acts as a repeater and sends it out at 50 watts vs the 5 watts the ht puts out. Basically you make your own repeater for yourself.

    Sounds like HAM is the way to go. My wife's health can deteriorate in a moments notice, so being able to reach out for medical emergencies is a must.

    They're not that bad. Just exercise good practice and they'll be fine.

    Keep working operators assist with keeping emergency roads and such open. But you still get paid no matter what.
