Thanks for your response 2Z, but other than you and a couple of the hams, I guess there’s not much interest in this.
When we were RV full-timers we used a Wilson “trucker’s antenna” that we could plug into external antenna ports on our cell phones. “They” no longer make that an option for cell phones. As I’m typing this, I see an ad for “weboost” cell signal boosters to the side of the screen.
I’m thinking I’ll go with GMRS since I’m not enough of a ham fan to go through the antenna setup and tear down when I need to talk to someone. We only got our ham licenses because we needed it for search and rescue communications.
