Baofeng GMRS Laws

Postby AirCanada » Fri Jan 01, 2016 6:39 pm

Hello, my stepdad and I were looking to get some comms and were looking into the baofeng UV-5R as they are cheap and well reviewed. Neither of us are citizens (both legal permanent residents) so we want to make sure we are following every law to the book, and we have not found very clear info on the GMRS licensing and whether it covers only one of us or both with me being only 16. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

You both need the license if I recall correctly.

GMRS licensing covers the immediate family unit, and permits you to communicate with other GMRS licensees (and their immediate family members) as specified in Part 95. FCC rules on GMRS are remarkably cut and dry: http://www.ecfr.gov/cgi-bin/text-idx?SI ... a&rgn=div6

Thanks, we were planning to use them at Action Acres, Camp R&R, the swamp, and maybe at some milsim events if there are any nearby.
