So I've got another noob question here. The family and I take many road trips from Vegas that take us along some pretty lonely stretches of highway with no cell coverage for hours at a stretch. I've pretty much decided that I'm going to purchase an Icom 5100 as my primary radio. My question is, what's good "SOP" when on the road? I like the built in GPS and repeater database in the 5100. Do most folks monitor 146.52? My obvious concern is being able to reach someone incase of emergency or mechanical issue. I started thinking about this while on a drive up to Ely, NV where we had no cell coverage for about 90 minutes and didn't see another vehicle the entire time. Any thoughts or tips?
