    Please don't... one per forum is enough... hehehe

    Kimbo,

    When you said 1/2 watt originally i thought you wanted to "up" a dinky handheld you had or somesuch.

    Your GME is a 5 watt set already so if you have it connected to a decent antenna and a good SWR (no shitty coax or dodgy connectors) trying for 10 watts. won't get you much more useable range anyway.
    'Useable' meaning where both you and another mobile can communicate.
    Mobile to repeater or mobile to a good base (homestead or whatever) would be a different scenario

    This....

    Seriously tho...there were a few "tweaks" you could do to get a few more berries out of the TX4xxx series, but they are all old units now, and the real world power gains aren't that great. I haven't seen inside the newer stuff...I wonder if they are similar?

    You could program a commercial radio for 25W but that's illegal.

    You could get a Ham license.

    non really unless the person you are talking to has a tuned up radio it more comes down to choice of antenna 6.5 db ant is a good allrounder will work for car to car and repeater the elevated feed in GME or simulare but there are some rubbish elevated feeds aswell the big thick white sticks >>>>>my opinion only<<<<<<< are not that good best result i have had is with elevated feed and a 6.5 db twin coil antenna ..... in radios you get what you pay for more or less my personal prefferance for UHF is ICOM or old TAIT and some other brands but they are commercial radios that are modified to work on CB Frequencies...... many years ago i was a naughty boy and ran kenwood 501 and yasue 101 on CB in the heyday of 27dregz
