    You read it correctly. @RobP62 doesn't read.

    I never understood why they made dsylexic such a hard word to spell. Seems cruel to me.

    Yea, I was basing it off the fact that I have a HAM license and that precludes one from needing a GMRS license. $10 seemed low but besides not reading, I'm also lazy. $7 bucks a year for an entire family seems like a pretty good deal to me. Considering you can pick up a sweet kit like this

    https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07SCSQFBK/ref=cm_sw_r_apa_i_V6-XEbPE3F8YP

    which is a much better choice for long range comms on trails.

    I fixed this for you Greg.

    So @Rome604 and @RobP62 the GMRS license vs. amateur ham license in a simplified summary is:

    My view was, I just need to talk over radios for trail heads up and spotting purposes...for the most part I saw the GMRS as a no-test/no-study option to run the 462/467 allowable

    Stuff that my wife thinks I don't need.
    I really need to get off my ass and get the HAM license. The practice tests have scared me off. Too much math and science for my dumb ass.

    If you have the technician license (lowest tested HAM license) then you still need a GMRS license. They are completely independent of each other.

    So basically I would need to get the technician license in order to legally transmit over the approved 462 and 467 freq's? Dang I thought the GMRS license was the halfway point where you can use it for recreational communication, no digital or text capabilities...otherwise I'll have to find out when they'll resume testing (presuming onsite testing has been suspended with CCP virus woes).

    You put d rings into the bed, for the back two anchors?

    I was curious if the permanent side anchors would suffice/if the strap was long enough to fit between the two (though I imagine you had to customize the strap lengths?)...

    I don’t have those anchors there so I added my own. I don’t think the side ones would work though. My strap is for a 35”-40” tire and the back two straps are mostly extended.
