So I can't find another thread about this, I think this is the closest to what I am looking for. I am fairly new to the radio world. I have used CB before but only with not really knowing what I was doing. I recently purchased a scanner and began to learn more about the world of radio. Just wanted to give y'all a little background. I am looking to get my GMRS license for myself and my family to use in emergency situations and maybe a little everyday use (ex: long trips, hunting camp, etc etc...). I have been reading on these forums and others about the way GMRS works. Although it still does not make a whole lot of sense to me. What I am wondering is if anyone can tell me a good "starter set" for lack of better wording. I am a hands on learner, so getting the equipment and essentially teaching myself to program it and work it would be what I would do. (of course with help from the internet haha) Any help would be greatly appreciated.
