    Ok crew,
    There was lots of talk on the H.F.A.W.H.A. post about radios. Lets pull it all together here.

    I'm a beginner myself and have lots of questions. Been playing around with my "radio" and found its range to be great. I bought a GT-3TP and finally got it programmed for the below list.

    PL TONE?
    Do I need to program the PL Tone (CTCSS) or just leave it as is and program my kid's walkie-talkie to 1-0.
    Is there a faster way to do this. Most standard walkie-talkies are preset for PL Tone 1. Should I just set them all to 1?

    For sakes of a black hawk raining down on us, let's call these the takeover channels. This is the common walkie-talkie radio channels that we will all be using since many of use dont have those "special radio's" .. right...

    FRS = Family Radio Service

    If we stick with those frequencies a good standard walkie-talkie will work fine. There will be no need to buy a "special" radio for this trip.

    Although a special radio is probably just as cheap as a regular handheld walkie... (and will work within those frequencies)

    I do read those "special radios" are good to have in like a bug out bag. Just so many settings you need be "special radio trained" to work them. Unless the zombies come.
    Lol.

    Ahh... true. (About the special programming).

    However, A new radio owner will be around LOTS of ppl with similar radios, at this particular event.

    So the Motorola 1.5mile walkie-talkie should be able to pick you up and vice versa?

    As long as we are on the FRS, common channels in post 1 and you are set to a privacy code of 0.
    Ex. You need be on channel 1 with privacy set to 0 and we need to be on 462.5625

    @JTW, I would love to find some long distance channels. I know the FRS si good for sort range.

    Cp's frequncies aren't any more powerful, per say. The radio (watts) are primarily responsible for the distance. Those GMRS and FRS frequencies are not permitted to run 7&8 watts. So technically you're supposed to turn your power on the handheld down when tuned to those frequencies...
    1/2 - 3 watts gets you a mile or so under ideal circumstances... 8 watts gets you twice as far.
    True, the lower the frequency the better it transmits (151 vs 460)... but it wouldn't change things more than 1/8 mile in this instance.
