What is Gmrs.

GMRS stands for General Mobile Radio Service. It was intended as a way for families to be able to stay in touch via radio.

You must have a license to legally use GMRS frequencies/radios. Your license covers immediate family members. The license requires you fill out some forms and pay the FCC a fee. Unlike amateur radio, there is no test involved. The license is valid for 10 years.

GMRS uses frequencies in the 462Mhz and 467Mhz range. You can use handheld, mobile, and base radios. There are antenna height and power restrictions. There are 30 GMRS channels, some of which overlap with FRS (Family Radio Service) channels.

The main differences between FRS and GMRS is FRS has less channels available, FRS transmit power is limited 0.5W and 2W, there are no repeaters on FRS, and there is no license required for FRS.
