    I would like to take a HT on a cross country trip.. I am not versed in DMR.. Will it find a repeater as I travel like a cell phone.. What is the best radio,,, I am on a fixed income.. so I would have to find maybe a used radio that I could carry on my bag.. Like a Motorola.. Might be able to get a used unit and have it programmed for the trip,

    Thanks

    I've taken an HT along to listen to the train crews and never heard repeater traffic. You might be able to hit a local repeater at a station stop and probably not while traveling through the boonies as long distance trains often do.
