    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

I have 2 handheld FRS/GMRS radios and will be getting the Diamond D-130nj antenna. My question is how can I transmit from the 2 handhelds with the Diamond outdoor antenna instead of the rubber duck antenna? What connections do I need to connect the radio to the outdoor antenna?

FRS radios are not allowed to transmit on any outside antenna. This is why they are not removeable. However, if you have a GMRS llicense, you can use an outside antenna, just not with the radios you have.

FRS/GMRS Antenna

If you have GMRS radios that have the 7 FRS channels in them and you have a GMRS license you can connect an antenna to the radio.

You cannot connect an antenna to a FRS radio.

Sec. 95.194 (FRS Rule 4) FRS units.
(c) You may not attach any antenna, power amplifier, or other apparatus to an FRS unit that has not been FCC certified as part of that FRS unit.
