    I'm curious if anyone (other than Davis) has the legal version...

    Channel 19 has activity in this area, mostly truckers.

    I have the frequencies in my scanner but I only hear sales staff in retail stores using the frequencies. Reminds me when the Chicken Band radios first came out, ambulance companies were using them until the yahoos took over! I used them working Campus Patrol at the college I was attending. This was when the protable CB radios didn't have rubber duckie antennas. We had the 4 foot metal ones, we had to duck to get through doorways!

    Steve,
    GMRS- WQBY447
    I'm licensed for GMRS and it's the real deal. I also have a Restricted Radio-Telephone Permit from the FCC. No forum activity though. I'm somewhat disappointed with the range on the GMRS. Too many obstacles in this area.

    The playboy, 140, and 152 for sightseeing and playing around. The 172 and cherokee 6 for work and vacations.
    I earned my Private license in a Cherokee 140. I know the Cessna is great for sightseeing because the wing isn't in the way, but I prefer the low wing since it's easier to clear the air when doing steep turns, lazy eights, etc. I've flown the Arrow, but not the Six. I hear it's a great airplane for hauling people.

    I enjoy flying whenever I can. I also like going out into the desert and target practicing. Skydiving as well, but, haven't done it now in over a year. Pretty much anything that gets me outdoors and out of the office.
    What do you fly?

    My after work hobby...

    When I am not at work, which is rare...

    I belong to a Probe Car club, and own a few of them.. Autocross racing with this one, and car shows!

    Go figure.. Something not security related!
