    I may get a GMRS and just listen for a while. That way I can hold off on the license and SWR meter until I hear enough traffic to warrant keeping the radio

    Good idea to monitor the bands for awhile in order to determine the usefulness. Let us know what you hear.
     
    Timin770 Thanks this.

    Actually maybe I can get a little handheld unit and listen for a few weeks before getting a 'big gmrs radio''

    I will start carrying one of my GMRS. HTs and listen to 7. I was carrying an HT for a while but schedule has been crazy last couple months. My KG1000 is still in the box lol

    Been on channel 7 in AL for a few hours. Heard a couple brief instances of white noise. Every time I hear noise I ask for a radio check. No responses yet. I only have an HT with me so I'm sure that limits RX/TX
