No, it is not required.

While not required, it is a great way to stay in touch with your squad and into the action. Baofengs (UV-5R) are good radios for the cost, it's what most people run at events.

Please do a little bit of self education on the BAOFENGs before grabbing it and using it.  It's very important to stay off of public safety frequencies.

Be extremely careful. A month ago on the river fire in California, division Delta had CB traffic constantly interfering on a federal frequency. I know we're pretty much going to be in the middle of nowhere, but it's better safe than sorry.

Yeah, the frequencies we use aren't in the federal band. I'd advise the technically incompetent to have someone with technical knowledge program their radio and lock it from accidental changes. No need to attract the attention of the bureaucracy.
