When I did that I set the modulation type to "all" because I was too lazy to tick each box for analog only...

    For MURS/GMRS: what type of radio would work best for the job?

    What radio would be very useful and have great transmit and receive for either band; an LMR (type) radio or something cheap like a Wouxun or Midland? ofc both are on the same power levels (2w for MURS, and 5 to 50 watts for GMRS)

    small VHF antenna for pocket device
