My Motorola FRS radios take the same mike as my Icom HT's.
Looks like it could be adapted th Ham HT's.
Butt with Echolink, maybe not needed.
The interface may be easier.
But who do you talk to and how do you connect.
I may check that out tomorrow. I get a discount.
It may be a good interface that hams can hack for ham use or abuse.
