Good radio, but way over-priced without an antenna. The F11/F21's also have an issue with the battery contacts going on/off in high vibration applications.
Look at a F43 like 190781317152- you would be much happier. The -86 version is for 380-430 military apps, and won't cover GMRS, The common splits are 450-512 and 400-470. Both will do what you need.
