    Take a look at this site for some of the licensing info: http://www.arrl.org/ham-radio-licenses

    Encrypted communication I think is a no no from what I recal reading while studying for my Techinician License. The only time I think you can use encrypted is if you are using the radios of controlling some sort of device like a remote controlled plane or similar items. But I guess you can look at the rule the same way as the No Berretas signs on some businesses.
    The government selectively enforces laws, so I selectively follow them.

    I'm sure it will piss off the amateur radio hobbyists, but for short range mobile tactical comms, I tend to look at most of their rules that way.

    These radios have piqued my interest you can get sets of five for 150 bucks. Are they difficult to program and set up?

    A lot of them will try to DF you if the hear you tx without a "government issued proper call sign and license". But that could be countered by remaining mobile, keeping tx to a minimum, using the minimum tx power needed, and changing your Frequency frequently.

    In my opinion no they are not difficult to program.....although I read all over the internet that they are. I bought the USB cable and programming software but have never used it.

    So pretty much find a frequency without much activity on it and do what you need to do?

    Kind of but not exactly.......using the FRS,GMRS, and MURS freqs is best depending on where you are; this gives one lots of choices.

    Honestly, they're stupid easy if you are computer savvy, buy the programming cable and download chirp, you can program a boat load of channels. It's really easy to manually program the radio as well.

    Sua, thanks for the post, gives me some ideas to update my comms, I had no idea that those routing cables were sold on amazon. I had been sourcing the parts to make my own, but that's just a lot easier.

    Do you do anything to further waterproof those radios? I noticed the dry bag, is that just for component storage?

    If you want to interact with the “bubble pack” radios, you need to know the specific FRS or GMRS frequencies. They can be found many places, including here: http://wiki.radioreference.com/index..._channel_chart

    I don’t have much knowledge of the MURS channels, but they exist as well.
