JustRuns encourages all 4 Wheelers to get 2 Meter Ham Radios for their 4x4s. Very Good Ham Radios are available for less than $30. We encourage everyone to get their license but we do not require one. No license is Required by the FCC in order to Buy or Monitor Ham Radio and no license is Required to transmit in an Emergency.
Many or our Run Leaders now REQUIRE ALL Participants on their runs to carry a Ham Radio in their vehicle.
A Ham Radio is Far Superior to CB and costs less than a tank of gas. If you don’t want to spend a lot of money, we recommend buying a Baofeng UV-5 on eBay or Amazon. The Baofeng UV-5 is Excellent for trail use.
