Here is a question. The are requiring GMRS radios, and I don't want to do a dash mounted one. I've found some handheld. Will they work fine?
If I had to GUESS the hand held would work since you are running in a group and will be able to talk. I beleive teh difference is teh range of them.

I emailed JJ to see if that’s allowed. I’m sure it would be fine, but don’t want to get there and they say no.

This one could be mounted under the seat out of sight
move looked at it, and I know this is silly, but I don’t want to mess with the antenna. Hate magnet mounts and don’t want to mess with mounting it anywhere else. That’s why I thought the handhelds would work. I’m thinking about this one. https://baofengtech.com/product/gmrs-v1/

Yes! Used handhelds at Arch canyon this year. Worked excellent and compact. Nothing mounted.

They emailed me back and said a handheld is fine. Said Moab sold out in 5 minutes. That’s crazy.

So, Moab sold out in 5 minutes. How many vehicles are allowed to attend?

me too. My wife is going with me. Congrats on getting in. Hope to see you.
I didn’t think I’d get in, but opened it right at 4 pm CST. I think we’ll be headed out from Houston Wednesday morning. If your getting a hotel, Moab ones are already expensive. I guess they know we’re coming.

edit: Wednesday morning that week in October 2021.

We are leaving Missouri Wednesday morning. 18 hour drive. I haven’t booked the hotel yet. Guess I better get on that.

Yes hand helds are fine they were selling them hot and heavy at their events. I am sure you can buy one off of them at the event, like I said they were selling them at the events last year with a lot of other JJ stuff.

I got it. So excited. Only took 10 minutes for it to sell out. Waiting list only now.
I started trying at 5:00 PM EST....and by 5:01 it was waiting list only! I'm not sure why I didn't get in but I'm on the waiting list......?
