  1. GMRS Jeep Channel?

    When I am just driving around, I find myself just leaving it on 16 in hopes of hearing another Jeep someday. :-)
  2. GMRS Jeep Channel?

    Just an update. As of today, 2/17/21, the GMRS FCC License is still $70.00. Not sure when the $35.00 will kick in.
  3. Radio Shutting off, and Clock Resetting.

    Every time I mention to the service shop about the Uconnect popping and resetting, they say the same thing, "Weird. I've never heard of this being a problem." 🙄

    OH MY GOSH! HA! I was just talking about this last night to my son. You can always count on the two HAM operators at 4:30pm on channel 18 hitting the repeater asking how they sound and what they could do to sound better. :) It's like clockwork!

    Also, if you intend to attend any of the Jeep Jamboree events, GMRS is required.
  6. Midland MicroMobile 15w GMRS Install

    I got the 20' cable with the NMO mount from CoolTech and it fit perfectly. I ran it from the back of the Jeep along the passenger side.

    Why do I always forget about Velcro? Brilliant!
  8. Midland MicroMobile 15w GMRS Install

    That's cool! What did you screw the radio bracket to?
  9. What kind of off roading is a JLU Sport S capable of?

    On a different note; I saw this warning on the Silver Valley Jamboree website and was wondering about it: "Participant Jeeps with tires over 40″ WILL BE TURNED AWAY AT VEHICLE EVALUATION AND WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO ATTEND JAMBOREE, NO REFUND." Why are tires over 40" a no-no?

    I received the Mic Mount from @CoolTech and installed it. I did have to drill a couple of holes to mount the clip from Midland and as my skills are not that great, I got it off-center a bit. But it works. I also installed the cord extension which makes securing my radio easier. Thanks for the...
  11. GMRS Jeep Channel?

    I just found that for truckers, they recommend channel 7 for highway use.:,can%20install%20on%20your%20truck.

    I wish I had known about you before I bought my radio with the kit from you. That tailgate mount is pretty cool. It should be here Monday. I haven't ordered a ghost antenna yet because I'm not sure if it will fit on there. Do you know there is enough room between the mounting post and the tailgate?

    Ya know, you could just offer a Midland MXT275 installation kit with instructions for a JL and save us all a lot of time. :LOL: I authorize you to use my pictures. :)

    Awesome! I just ordered the cable. Here is what the radio looks like after installation.
  15. Midland MicroMobile 15w GMRS Install

    Holy cow! I pulled the panel off below the steering column and ther is a spot that looks like it was meant to install a radio!
  16. Midland MicroMobile 15w GMRS Install

    I looked to see if I could mount it behind the glove box, but I don't see anywhere unless I mount it on the right side to what I believe is the plastic enclosure for the speaker by your legs. I am going to take a look under the steering column and see if there is a good place. Barring, I might...
  17. Midland MicroMobile 15w GMRS Install

    ALERT: I found a problem with my install today when putting the dogs in the back seat. I have a two door and the seat is blocked from sliding forward by the radio. I guess I am going to have to find a new location. I will try either behind the glove box or under the dash on the drivers side.

    My MTX275 has the speaker on the handset. There looks to be speaker holes on the box, but the handset is where the sound comes out on mine.
  19. GMRS Jeep Channel?

    What if all Jeep people started using channel 7 on their GMRS radios while just running about town or down the highway? It could it be handy for getting on channel 7 while in a traffic jam to see what lane I would need to move to.
