Hi all, we've been discussing the radio situation. Ultimately the decision was made to not pursue the Baofeng radios because of their dubious legality and our desire not to piss off the FCC or law enforcement. As a result we've selected a new radio. Unfortunately it's alot more expensive. The good news is however they come in pairs so not everyone will have to buy a set if some of us are feeling more generous. Please let me know what you think.
