Just received WQRC472 on Friday. Still trying to decide on a set of HT's to get programed. The local shop in Corpus Christi (where I'm currently at for business) is recommending Vertex, but I'm still trying to decide which particular model line to use (ie, 231, 351, 417, etc).

Also, anyone know of any mobiles that are Part 95? I've been cruising the forum as a guest for a couple of days now trying to find a definitive answer but can't seem to find one... Lots of comments about "Part 90" being close enough, but no one actually saying X radio from Y band is Part 95. Any suggestions?

If you get on eBay and look up Maxon SM4450 they are part 95 and a 16 channel 40 watt dual priority scan,work real well have used them for years and bought a programmer for it several years ago.I have always had good luck with mine and they are cheap but I bought some new ones when they were in production for both public safety and GMRS,my local police used them for years and I did the installs when I worked there.William

Let me add another good one that is part 95 is the Kenwood TK-805d-1 but be careful if you find one on eBay or anywhere make sure it is the 805d-1,the rest of the models do not cover 450-470

I worked at a large mining operation that used two way radios extensively, as a radio repair tech. TK805d-1 was an excellent mobile radio. However, in one instance when a pickup truck cab instantly filled with water from a large and rather sudden pipeline break, the 805d did not survive. Fortunately tha same could not be said of the driver who received only an unexpected shower.

THese units can be PC programmed (using DOS, the correct software and programming cable available for cheap) or they can be field programmed by moving an internal jumper and pressing the correct sequence of keys on the radio face while power up.

They are old but still do all the CTCSS tones and the digital codes as well. The plain TK805 (without the "D" suffix) only does CTCSS if so equipped with an add-on tone board, and is not PC programmable. However, these are still useful radios. They are programmable by moving the internal jumper only.

As stated by spd640, be sure of the frequency range before you purchase these radios. For GMRS use, 450-470 MHZ.

Well, I'll give you a hint: mine starts with "WQ"; has three digits following the letter sequence...
