Radio Primer

http://www.thetravelinsider.com/2003/0627.htm

For those of you who, like me, want to learn more about effective radio communication, I offer this four-part article I ran across this morning. Some of it is common knowledge, some of it isn't relevant to us, but a lot of it is valuable material.

VERY useful. I'm still trying to find the right radio, and I can't seem to do it even with this guide. Were we being deterred from buying hand-held CB, or were we encouraged?

What truly is the best hand-held radio available (or close to it)? I've never heard of anyone really saying "This is the best I've ever used". Heck, people rarely speak of radios in the first place, even though communication is paramount.

I'm really tired of using crappy FRS and not getting ANY reception. At a little under 200 feet I could not get reception from teammates. They were even in my line of sight (it was at night in the woods, so I actually couldn't see them...).

In an indoor facility, MAYBE 100 yards tops with not a lot of obstruction, we got barely any reception (one transmission at best).

I'm officially done with Motorola talk-abouts...

No, you don't want to use handheld CB radios (well you COULD if others used them) Unfortunately, there's no easy answer Red. PM me if you want to discuss this in detail.
