    This has been made WAY more complicated than needed given the parameters requested. Don't over think it.

    Those import radios aren't certified for 10M use either as they can also transmit on 11M so they aren't consider ham radio equipment.

    It would be nice to know exactly what radio the OP has.

    Pretty sure any CB/10M rig is against the rules. While converting may be possible it won't make it a type accepted radio.

    I'm just going to add that these vehicles (like the M998) panels (at least in my day) were fiberglass so you don't have much of a ground plane anywhere. A standard spring loaded "military mount"...

    LMRS requires another license to operate in the business band. Do-all radios aren't typically type accepted because the radio requirements and restrictions conflict with each other. For instance,...

    Many are Part 90 accepted. You can find the FCC sticker behind the battery. I currently have one that does and one that does not.

    The correct answer to the OP is your friends need a license to...

    Check the copper contact points and make sure they aren't bent and are clean. I can think of know other reason why it would show a charge but not work on the radio.

    Another vote for the FT-60R. Just use the antenna that came with it.

    You didn't list what bands you want to use. $250 can get you a lot of HT or a single band mobile radio. It can almost get you a decent dual band radio. You really need to be more specific.

    The care home is very likely not going to permit an equipment that may make them liable for anything...at all.

    Maybe you should look for something like an IRLP/Echolink solution that he could use...
  11. Mobile Radios TM V-71 transmit issues (background noise)

    Just wanted to put out a PSA as I've seen very little information on this problem.

    I've got a TM-V71 with a good install. Wired directly to the battery, NMO mounted Larson antenna and no apparent...

    Many if not most FM radios can listen to NOAA and receive the alerts.

    A mobile radio is always a better a solution unless you are primarily on foot.

    FM radios are line of sight. You won't get...

    The standard response is skip the HT and start out with a mobile. I'd skip the cheap Chinese radios as well but if that's where your heart is the NAGOYA NA-771 is the usual replacement antenna and...

    He doesn't have a ham license or GMRS. Most assume they can naturally use FRS because you don't need a license. I extrapolated the information I needed based off having the conversation about a...

    You cannot legally use any Baofeng radios on FRS. They transmit beyond the legal limit and they have a removable antenna.

    Repeaterbook says you have 7 active repeaters in you area. I don't have any near me. 2M dominates the VHF scene and 70CM on UHF in Florida. The only advantage I see is that it's less crowded.

    I have two 26 amp hour batteries. I get about 10 years of heavy use out of them as long as I keep them topped up. I connect a smart charger to them once a month.
