How to Choose Overland Communications: Part 2 - Mobile Radios, Cell Boosters

Jul 16, 2020

In this video we examine what radio communications are recommended for a Level 2 Overlanding Trip that is on the fringes of the grid.

We look at cell phone boosters, as well as GRMS mobile radios that range in wattage from 5 watts all the way up to 40 watts. These mobile radios are more powerful than their handheld brothers - meaning better communication between vehicles over a longer distance.

We also look at antenna options beyond the antenna included with the radio and what the advantages are of going with a better external GMRS antenna.

In Part 3 we will look into satellite communication devices like the Garmin InReach as well as Amateur Radios (HAM).
