    About two months ago. I bought a Wouxun KG-935G GMRS radio.

    It's a GMRS radio, similar to a dual band ham radio, but this is on the GMRS frequencies. Some people call them walkie talkies. To talk on this radio, you need an FCC issued license.  This post was edited by Chief Ten Beers at August 6, 2022 10:06 PM MDT

    Reading your reply, I immediately thought of comedian Brian Regan and had to share this clip - - Brian Regan makes me laugh all the time!! Hope you get a chance to watch -- it's only about a minute long.  :)

    I'm also a ham, and we rarely call them walkie talkies. We call the HT's, which is short for handy talkies.

    In the Navy, they were 'two-ways'.

      Handy-talkie sounds just as bad or even worse than walkie-talkie.
