How to decide between a GMRS OR Business Band radio?

Before purchasing a radio, ensure you know what type of radio your friends, club, riding group, etc., are currently using. If you want to talk to them you need to be on the same band of radio. If your group is just getting started, and you aren’t racing, we highly recommend using GMRS!

GMRS is easy to use and walkie-talkie compatible! The frequency band operates well in heavily wooded areas, or any environment with obstructions including canyons, mountains, and forests.

Business Band is used by professional race teams for communication in offroad desert racing! It's also a great solution for professional agriculture and farming operations.
