    151.625 is safe and one of the legal ones to broadcast without a license :)

    Actually it depends on your radio now that I looked since these cheap baofengs have low frequency its not required a fcc license.
    now a more expensive high power radio could get you talking to people in Australia that requires license:thumbsup:

    So as long as we are only transmitting on the 151.625 low power than we're good?

    Well, that and you'd think that they would focus on enforcing the law being broken in a manner that caused some sort of problem.

    Basically this, and I'd agree with you guys: we aren't stepping on toes or preaching jihad. We're laughing and bullshitting about caves and trying to not have to stop every 10 feet to communicate.

    I did some research and it looks like we have five murs channels we can use without FCC lic.

    I tried them and they work on my radios!

    https://www.fcc.gov/general/multi-use-radio-service-murs

    151.820 MHz (11.25 kHz)

    151.880 MHz (11.25 kHz)

    151.940 MHz (11.25 kHz)

    154.570 MHz (20.00 kHz)

    154.600 MHz (20.00 kHz)

    Yeah, this is almost discouraging.

    Reading all this ish makes me feel like I'm back in school.

    However, I dig the idea of always having a line of communication available if... ZOMBIES!!!

    So maybe I'll see about buying a book and getting licensed.

    On the same topic. After reading the thread that @digitaLbraVo shared, should we be using one of those lower channels that are in fact "free and clear"? Or do they suck, so that's why we don't?

    Might be a dumb question but can other radios dial into this channel? Got a pair of hand me down 12 station radios I can bring if they'll work :notsure:

    Will do.

    Just did a coolant flush this afternoon, hoping it'll take care of the slight overheating I get when I run my AC while crawling in 4wd...noticed it when we were on the Miller Jeep trail a couple weeks ago. It's either that or I'm looking at replacing the electric fans I've got with the stock fan clutch. Will find out tomorrow :fingerscrossed:

    @SlipperyTaco, Bob Smith Toyota is by far the most helpful Toyota dealership I've been to out here, thanks for recommending them :thumbsup:
