break one law, break another...
THAT is an awesome idea! Very cool. I take it this remains within the rules for FRS since the antenna is non-replaceable?
Yep, the rules say that the antenna needs to be built in, but they don't say anything about how long the mike cord can be.
If you could attach a chin strap to the beanie/yarmulke, you could be walking mobile.
If you had a steel plate in your head, it would work great!
You can do it if everyone has their own call sign. Else, no.
FRS, GMRS and MURS are the only other LEGAL ways to do what you want to do as none of the above mentioned services requires a license.
DO NOT try this on any ham band, you might get in trouble and you might just lose YOUR ham license. It is not worth the trouble you could get into.
Oh and if you use any of these services, make sure you use equipment that is certified for that service. In other words, no Baofeng radios what so ever. Stay type accepted and stay out of any potential trouble.
Depends on what the antenna requires.
I tried using a broadband mobile antenna on an NMO mount only to find out the thing needed a ground plane AT LEAST 3 FEET SQUARE -- 36" x 36".
Obviously that one didn't work out.
I stand by my claim that with appropriate hardware one could do 'remote 3rd party'. Still not the best answer for the OP (FRS, GMRS, or CB is a much better answer) but this is an ancient zombie thread anyway, and it is fun to think about how to do something while staying in the rules.
1) 'Third party' operation is permitted. This means that a non-licensed individual can communicate using amateur radio.
2) For 'Third party' operation the license holder must actually be in charge of the transmission. The license holder must have a way to stop any inappropriate transmission, and is responsible for the transmissions.
I think this could be implemented with suitable hardware.
But such hardware would be experiment (one of the goals of amateur radio) and more expensive then using the proper tools (FRS, GMRS, CB or cell phones). But it could be fun.
You could, of course, wide-band both radios and use them on the FRS frequencies!
Sad that it has come down to this as a sincere opinion or advice
Not that I wish to be a ham elitist or such thing,,, down the slippery slope we slip.....
