Nice to see that yours is getting use, I bought mine in lovely lavender and I can't find a outfit it doesn't clash with.

Remember, if you want to be able to talk to people on the GMRS / FRS channels, make sure to get a UHF radio in the 400-470 MHz frequency range. Bear in mind that if you use a 4 or 5 Watt UHF radio on the FRS only channels (Channels 8 - 14) or on the shared GMRS / FRS channels (1 -7) anybody using a cheapo FRS radio will be able to hear you, but if they transmit you may not hear them since they may only have 0.5 Watts of transmitting power.

The GMRS / FRS frequencies are from 462.5625 MHz to 462.7250 MHz range. See the stickied thread HERE

If you don't want to be bothered by anyone on those channels, then punch your own frequency. Just double check that you don't accidentally use a frequency being used by someone else.

Techseller is a good retailer for radios.

It takes 10 seconds to set it up properly so you dont give away your position or the teams with unecessary noise. Also anyone and everyone jamming the comms talking about things that aren't important.
Mine beeps at the beginning.. it lets everyone know I'm broadcasting, and lessens the chance I get stepped on. If you have valid reasons not to use it, I'd love to hear em.

I wouldn't mind if the "Roger" beep sounded like the one used by the Combine in Half Life 2. Interestingly, that "Combine beep" is simply the Motorola standard beep slowed down.

Everyone should have a radio at a game, for safety and to know whats going on. However, very few people should actually be transmitting and by few I mean 5-10% of the roster, if that.

several people have mentionned that it's horrible and needs to be turned off.
everybody hates it.
isn't that valid enough ?
you could turn it off and make Tweebeeleebeelee with your mouth if you want, you'd say
'Tweebeeleebeelee to CO, we need ammo, over, TwEbEeleeebeleeEeEee

3 people have stated they find it annoying, on the forums. Nobody has even whispered to me that they find it annoying while out at a field.

Next time I'm out I'll ask everyone on my team. Odds are they wont care/don't have the stones to say anything.
