Hi There,

I recently purchased a set of Uniden GMR283802-CK 2-way radios. I went ahead and paid for a FCC ZA license, my question is I'm having trouble finding any help on how to get these radios connected to my channels and any resources on any tutorials on this subject. How do i know for sure that I am in fact connected to the proper GMRS channels and are functioning??


You scout group is at a large event and your radios are setup with a DCS tone. You are communicating well within your troup when an angry scout leader from another troup comes up and is very upset that your troup is interfearing with his and other troups. All the other frequencies are jammed with scouts so changing frequencies is not an option.

What do you do?

1. Turn off your DPL and cope?
2. Have them and all the other scout troops turn on DCS?
3. Tell them "I'm sorry but we are doing the right thing by using DPL "Privacy Codes" and its your problem....

What is the ethics involved with this situation.
