    BFG KO2's review.

    Wow. I've tried others and keep returning to BGF KOs, both on my Chevy truck for almost 20 years and now my Jeep. Current set of KO2s are almost 3 years and 51,000 miles and still have life in them. Sucks to hear so many with not so good runs on them.

    Pennsylvania Forest Adventurer 2022

    Thanks again for your exploration and sharing. We were hoping to get out more in 21 and also found the continued increased popularity of folks getting away from the cities to be challenging. But on to 2022!

    What Did You Do With Your Rig Today?

    A foglight bulb went out, so good reason to upgrade. Quadratec LED foglights. Quick, accurate delivery. 30 minute install. Major improvement! Wish I had a before/after of the night view.

    While still a blacktop route, it is often visited enroute to/from other opportunities. Shenandoah National Park announced fee changes for campgrounds, Old Rag hikes, and backcountry camping permits.

    Antenna mounting on a JKU

    I have the dual band antenna mounted on the hood. Excellent receive and transmit for me so far. My FTM-400 radio body is under the passenger seat and I have done wheel well water crossings without enough water inside to be an issue.

    BTECH GMRS-V1 Arrived

    The possibilities are almost endless. Which radio can also dependent on how you want to use it as a ham, such as with DMR, DSTAR, Fusion, APRS, etc. (all modes and functions of ham radio) Your specific vehicle has bearing on "easy to install". If you're looking to start with simple VHF/UHF...

    Radio Quals?
