Fair warning this is gonna be a ongoing post. I recently purchased this radio site unseen from Amazon. While I am still learning how to use this and what I can and can't do I will make a note to tell you that according to the FCC you can not transmit with this radio unless you have a amateur radio license.

But as with all things in a situation that you would need to use this in a emergency then I would say all rules are null and void. What little research I have done so far tells me they can be used as Walkie-talkies but the FCC frowns on it.

A second note you can get the weather band on it once you find your local repeater.

Recent update:
Programming is coming along there are several ways to do this but its not simple but not really hard. Still no go on the license right now but I have noticed that I get better signal in certain areas. No experimentation yet out in the woods but for local traffic it is pretty decent.

Waiting for a chance to try the walkie-talkie function but need another person with the same radio to test it.
