I have a ham and a gmrs HT. I read that my GMRS radio can be unlocked, so I don't have to carry two radios with me. The GMRS radio is a Baofeng UV-9G, SoC radio (so cheap, poor selectivity) but fine for experimenting or high risk activities where I don't want my yaesu to get wet.
I found videos for physically identical models (to my Baofeng UV-9G) which show holding PTT, Monitor, Scan, and then power on, will unlock the unit, removing all tx range limits.
This doesn't seem to work for the UV-9G. Would anyone know of a button combo to unlock the UV-9G?
Note: Naturally, if you are not authorized to tx on a certain band then don't. Don't want to start a flame war.
