To get your GMRS Radio system on the air, you'll need some equipment. Depending on your needs and budget, your GMRS equipment may include one or more hand-held (walkie talkie), mobile radios or "base stations," antennas, power supplies and adapters. Fortunately, GMRS radio equipment is inexpensive and easy to obtain.

The El Dorado County Amateur Radio Club has tested many brands of new and used GMRS-capable radios and antennas, and can help you choose what equipment and options are best for you and your budget.
