Hi David, We are starting a group to patrol our neighborhood. What would you recommend for handheld sets for each member? Also, I recently got my technician license and am searching for an affordable base station system for myself, what would you recommend, including components/ accessories?

Thanks for the information. Can this also be used as a police/emergency channel scanner? If not, what would you recommend that won’t break the bank?

Motorola is owned by the Chinese communist party. If you buy it you will support them be smart people. I’d rather have a carrier pigeon before our support those bastards

Beware. Spread spectrum is not the security measure you may think.

I like Zastone walkie talkies. The A-9 series is 10 watts, mono band, ‘black box’ style with 16 channels. They can be programmed on a computer with free software. UHF if you are in the city, VHF (2 meters) if you live in the ‘burbs’ or rural. Check on e-bay with a seller like RadioTop. The units sell for about $55. They can be programmed for encode/decode for repeaters. Yeah, they are made by the Chinese and probably sold by them. Get your comms in order.
At least get the Motorola talk about 2 watt FRS walkie talkies (for neighborhood use). Nothing wrong with classic mobile CB with SSB. But you will have to get the antenna in order with SWR and a much bigger ground plane. Learning curve there everybody. Time is short.
