Yep, I have not found a FRS/GMRS handheld that was not compatible. Just remember to set the privacy code to zero on the handheld. The rest of the frequencies / channels are the same #'s; example - channel 7 on a handheld is channel 7 on the custom units.

They will not pick up real good in the hills/mountains we ride, but do all right at camp. Most hand helds are hard to hear when you are rolling in your side x side. If you want one that will pick up for miles in the hills/mountains, get a mounted one from Hutch. His are boosted to about 50 watts. Most hand helds are about 5 watts. I have talked to our split up groups that are an hours ride or more away.

I just stumbled across those, and 8 of them for $100 seemed like a good deal. I recognize the Cobra brand name from the old CB days, so I'd expect OK quality. I could use some of these (2-4)
around the farm, but don't need 8. Yet, the price is intriguing...

I use my hand helds around our property too. The are great for MUDHOE to use and talk to me when I am backing the toyhauler in tough spots instead of hand signals that never make any sense.
