What Are They Used For?

Mobile ham radios are used by people in or around vehicles who need to communicate more swiftly or frequently than they can with cell phones, in areas where there’s no cellular signal, or with people whose phone number you do not know.

These radio transceivers are also often full-duplex, which means they can receive a transmission from one radio and transmit it to others down the line. This makes them effectively repeaters, good for extending the range of handheld radios.

Therefore, mobile ham radios are good for off-roaders, families vacationing in two cars, and people who might get lost in the wild and want a longer range than even the most powerful handheld radio will allow.
