If so, what's involved in getting one? Does the "code free" statement mean I don't need to learn moris code?
: : and you can operate on several fm simplex
: bands or repeaters at 146mhz. or 440 mhz. and the
: range is unbelievable!!!!!! I'm disappointed with the short range with the FRS radios commonly used on Z3 drives. Consequently, I'm considering alternatives.
: : My favorite idea at this point is the CB radio. Not only will the range be superior to a FRS, it will also potentially come in useful in keeping track of speed traps.
: : I would like to find one that could be installed out of site, like behind the seat, while allowing me to use an earphone and small microphone. Also essential is the ability to install the radio using a splitter to enable use of the standard Z3 radio antenna.
: : Does anyone have suggestions, opinions, or experience along these lines?
