One of guys in our group uses a Baofeng. The programmable one. Not sure of the modelA friend of mine brought some inexpensive Baofeng UV-5R radios to camp this year. They weren’t terrible from the limited time I used one. Our VT camp crew run the MagOne Motorolas. We hunt some rugged terrain and if you aren’t on the same side of the mountain they don’t come in very well, but thats the same for most all radios from what I understand.
Ya, that’s what I figured. Those Btechs won’t break the bank. Try ‘em. Maybe there are some reviews on them someplace.I'm not overly interested in talking to people. I'm more concerned about knowing who may be coming over the hill or around the corner at 60mph. The contractors and truckers use MURS.
Not sure if it has changed. I know the truckers and contractors use MURS more often than CB from the Pinkham Road and points north.Interesting, I was under the impression loggers were using CB, at least in the area's in Maine we hunt.
Has that changed?
We were talking last year to outbound logging trucks on CB for that exact reason
Do they tell you when they are coming around corners of over hills? Do they constantly update their locations on the radio? I always drive like their might be one coming around the corner or over the hill and am ready to pull to the right.I'm not overly interested in talking to people.
