I want to get the best quality hand held and moble com system I can get. Ive noticed all the bear hunters ( the hound guys) are using 2 meter vhf systems 136-174MHZ. Ive looked into those and im getting confused. They seem to be on the same band as the fire and pd guys. Are they using those bands illegally or are all of em getting licences? Are they using the repeaters?Are there some bands inside the 2 meter ham range that dont require a licence of some kind? I dont wanna buy crap but I dont wanna be talking on the same channel that the closest fire dept is.. Help me please.
