I don't remember getting an ear piece with my radio but if i did, it's long gone. The big round button you see in the first pic is the push to talk button.

 Back from my fishing trip on the gulf coast of Florida and the Baofeng radio worked flawlessly, especially the NOAA weather channels for the next days wind and wave forecast (not much help in the midwest) but the VHS marine channels worked great also to keep the fishing info flowing between all us kayakers while offshore fishing the flats.

Not to Hijack this post but we are getting ready for a willys get together this weekend in the ozarks and I got my BF-F9 out and some other motorola FRS radios to share with people who don't have anything.  My Baofeng will receive from the motorola but will not send to them on any of the channels.  Mike set it up for me at the FCT a few years ago and it worked great all week but to be honest I am not sure it sent then as we spent most of the week just listening to Mikes great tour info, not sure I ever tried to respond.  Any thoughts on why it is not sending?

I figured it out, the privacy( small number under the channel number) on the FRS motorola needs to be set to 0.  Thanks to some 13 yearly kid on youtube!  Works fine now.

Jeeper50, that's a nice fish!  That also looks like a sweet setup you have on that kayak.  I'll bet that was a great week on the water.  I'm glad to hear that the radio worked well for you.  That's what they are supposed to do.  You are the only guy I've ever set up for the marine channels.  Did you set yours up to monitor two channels at once?  Did you know you could?  Would that have been useful for you?  

MooCow, I have that problem every year with someone's FRS radio.  Usually a quick look at the screen will tell me what the problem is.  Then the real problem is getting rid of the privacy code so the radio is operating on open channel again.  Different brands have different keystrokes for clearing the privacy code off the radio.  I'm glad to hear you got yours figured out.

I was setup to monitor the NOAA and the marine channels at the same time, but the weather was so calm I just kept the VHS marine channel on to chat with others on the channel.

That, or someone's radio set to "VOX", and the whole group is unable to communicate, and has to listen to someone's conversation with his wife. LOLOuchWink   BW

Just picked up a Baofeng for the FCT per Mike's advice.

I found a great video on programming on for FRS, GMRS, Weather, and Marine channels using Chirp.



If you're not tech or Excel savy, here's a .CSV file in the .ZIP folder that I made that is the same as the one in the video that will give you all the FSR, GMRS, Marine, and Weather frequencies:
