I'm back with another quick question.

Will using high power on the HT1000 while talking with the Talkabouts cause any disadvantages? Will high power on the HT1000 cause any disadvantages in general? Could have sworn I heard something about it, wanted to check here.

Also... Do GMRS repeaters commonly use narrowband?

Why would it? People commonly use 50 watt mobiles and bases to talk with GMRS TalkAbouts and other handhelds.

I don't think anybody has a good handle on that one. Since it is optional, my best guess is that a lot of operators haven't put the time or effort into it.

Thanks, I just wanted to make sure. I thought I heard something about high power to Talkabouts and other bubble packs causing issues.

Yeah I was asking about repeaters and narrowband because from what I've heard the Talkabouts use narrowband too (As mmckenna was mentioning) because they share GMRS/FRS, but I was just curious if repeaters did the same because everything seems to be moving that way anyways, even though they aren't required yet by the FCC.

Howdy! HT1000 radios on high, 50w base stations, and bubble pack radios can all talk to each other no problem on the GMRS system. Like mentioned before, watch out for CTCSS and tones on the Base or HT1000.

I own and use an HT1000 everyday at work. It makes a great work mobile, and a nice side carry. I also live in Connecticut, and have made contacts on the Enfield EmComm GMRS repeater from Vernon. I've only used a 25w base mobile to connect to the repeater. I'm not sure Ill be able to hit it from my current location with the 5w the HT1000 is offering. I really wish the Greater Hartford GMRS repeater never went down.

If you still use GMRS, maybe I'll hear ya sometime on my scanner!
