I have mentioned these inexpensive 2-meter HAM radio’s before. These radios can obviously transmit on HAM frequencies (with appropriate license) – but equally important you can LISTEN.
These units also can receive weather-radio channels, FM stations, and can transmit FRS/GMRS frequencies. Yes – they will work with your inexpensive Midland FRS/GMRS walkie-talkies. There is even a built-in flashlight.
I am learning more and more about my Baofeng’s – trying out different antenna’s, learning their local range capabilities, messing with the menu’s, and listening. It’s pretty cool.
