Yep, what they all said. UFH and 1/4 wave radio antenna. If you get the antenna separate from the radio, make sure you carefully review type of mounting. Some antenna, like the ones we use, just mount to a point on the UTV like a light tab or the whip antenna tab. Other antenna that are available are designed to be mounted in the center of a metal roof/hood and use the hood/roof to get reception...you don't want that!

Radios are different when it comes to speakers.  Once you get your radio you can address the "do I need a speaker" question better. I am not a fan of portables but that's me, others love them.  I have never even heard the speaks on my Rugged Radio but I understand they are OK, I always have it plugged into a headset or my helmet speakers.

If they are UHF and on the same frequency I don't see why not! I think someone was using a portable last week on the ride....

Ahh, thats what I needed.  Thank Rick.  If not, I found a guy named nick in FL that does what ever you want, for about 100, but will deal with Kymedic if I can.  Look forward to the next ride. keep me in mind.

I was wondering if I would need an additional speaker.  I did not ask if he had those. but is that a simple plug or do you need to tap into the wires going to the internal speaker?  Did my own custom stereo just never messed with these.

it's probly a kenwood unit, most of them are. mine has a tiny speaker in the top of of it, so a small external speaker is a very useful accessory.

I've used them(portables) hunting, car-to-car, on board ship, in an international location and under the house.  I can clip these to my shoulder harness.  They also have voice activation and an external speaker port(earbuds?)for whatever that's worth.
