Has anyone any exerience converting a 1/2 wave-2 5/8 wave (larson 2/70,diamond 73,etc) open coil antenna to operate on GMRS (462.550-467.550)?
I have plenty of ham antennas to play with.

I am not sure but something tickles my memory that you are not allowed to usea removable antenna so the distance is kept close in delibertly.  It may be only for FRS but I thought GMRS also had no removabale antenna rules..

Tom: GMRS does not have a prohibition against removable antennas.

Mike: Convert? Try using one as is and see what happens.
