I was going to get my Ham License and a new Dual band radio for emergency purposes but my buddy says I should get into GMRS radios which work with GMRS repeaters, plus it works with FRS (Family Radios) with extended range.
The reason is I've been quite disappointed with the GlobalStar Sat phone last year. They said they have two new Satellites up but I haven't tested the coverage again lately.
What do you Hams think of GMRS radios as another or only option when Cell phones and Sat phones don't work out in the boonies?
The other option would be voip/internet via a two way Directway service I guess..but that SAT Dish is enormous!
I found a web URL that discusses it but wanted to see if anyone had additional opinions:
