    When I was at the lake in the morning, I couldn't pick up you guys as you were leaving to come down to the lake. I was on channel 15, code 13. I was calling y'all on the gmrs to see if y'all were coming down to the lake. Never heard any reply, so I started driving up the mountain. That's when I met you coming down

    I reset the handheld Baofeng one I bought (GMRS-V1) and reprogrammed it and still can't get the damn thing to transmit, it only receives. I'm going to return it and try another one since everyone else seemed to have good luck with their Baofeng units; seems I got a lemon. Also the battery charger was too big, I had to cut up credit cards to fill the gap to make sure the battery made contact with the leads. So in an ideal world I would at least have the right charger.

    Man what a pita, that's a bummer. It makes trips more fun being able to communicate. Feel a bit more cohesion as a group rather than separated in trucks.

    Yeah, it was a bummer not being able to add my witty little comments lol. When we went down to the lake I turned on my 2 way walky but the VOX sensitivity I think was too high and sounded like a hot mic, so I had to turn that off and go back to the Baofeng. I was impressed with the range on the Baofeng. A little bit of static for the longer range stuff but definitely an improvement over the walky.

    Do y'all have any personal recommendations re: armor? I'm looking at skids and sliders as my big summer project, but the abundance of choice has created a bit of a Netflix situation for me lol.

    Not even when I turned around at the top of the mountain and followed y'all back down. I didn't try to talk, but I didn't hear anyone else chatting on it when we had to stop on the trail for those jeeps. Maybe I need to look into the instructions a bit deeper than I did. I know I had it on ch15/code 13 tho

    That is odd. Damn radios being more complicated than they need to be. Next time we'll try just skipping the privacy channel and see if that helps people have fewer issues.

    Mobtown makes great products. And they are fairly local to save on shipping costs

    Mobtown and SOS both provide the greatest coverage (for the main three skids) so I would look at either of those. They are both semi-local too. The only other one I would recommend is BAMF but they're 1/4" thicc as opposed to the standard 3/16" (comparing steel to steel) which is overkill for the majority of people.

    The rest of the skids I've seen from other manufacturers either lack good coverage or just aren't as strong due to lack of reinforcements. That's my two cents on the matter.

    Mobtown seems like it's in the lead. I saw some sort of FB controversy from them a couple of weeks ago, any insight into that?

    I do like the fact that you can do an oil change with the skid on, which seems to not be the case for BAMF?

    Lastly: I assume they come powder coated, but their website doesn't actually say. That a fair assumption?
