|But only if those radios have the FCC part 95.191 for FRS and 95.631(j) for MURS certification.

|How about using an antenna that doesn't use a ground like a dipole. Maybe you can string it up in the attic or the bedroom. You may need a tuner and have to reduce your power but you should be able to make some contacts.

|GrizBear you had a good idea in checking the coax and connectors. A shorted connector or coax could give you the results you observed.

|Did you say you put the antenna INside the aluminum mast?

|Yes you need a license for GMRS. For the most part there are very few frequencies that don't need licenses (MURS/FRS/CB). You may be a bit confused about "wireless microphones". Microphones don't transmit but the transmitter they are connected do. So a one watt microphone is really a one watt transmitter and depending on the frequency it uses would require a license. Also, wireless microphones need an antenna for the frequency they are using. The higher the frequency the shorter the antenna. The FCC regulates frequencies and what can be used on each frequency as well as the power levels. Have you looked into "stealth" ham antennas? There are many designs available for those whose locations are "antenna challenged".
