    "A 40 watt uhf/VHF ham radio does all that.

    I think the barrier of entry and ease of use are in GMRS' favor though. More likely for club members to show up to a trail ready to communicate on GMRS than with ham licenses and mobile stations.

    Yeah, but if they do t want to study for a test just to get a license for a radio they will use a few times a year, do you even want to bother trying to talk to them?

    It's creeping along at the speed of bureaucracy:

    "The Schedule of Application Fees of the Commission's Rules was published in the Federal Register March 19, 2021. According to the notice, the fees officially take effect once it is sent to Congress and the FCC's systems have been updated. The FCC will then publish a notice of the actual effective date."

    I got tired of waiting and got a licence 2 weeks ago.
    Turns out there are a handful of GMRS repeaters in the Denver area. It gets much more sparse in the rest of the state, less so than ham. Most use split codes (one CTCSS or DCS code for repeater input, and a separate one for output), although there is one around Chatfield State Park that only uses a single code. I think only the top-tier Midland mobile radio supports split codes, and I do not think their handhelds support it. It's not really a primary 4x4-usage kind of feature, but something to keep in mind.
