GMRS License???

Recommended Posts

I have a few questions about a GMRS license and I hope this forum is the right place. I have called the FCC and I know the forms I need and that it cost $75. I have heard that the license is a "family license" and I have hear that it is an individual license. Which is it? Anything else I need to know before I get it? Thanks a ton.

The $75 GMRS is a family license which includes you, your spouse, children, siblings, parents, grandparents, nieces and nephews, I believe. The actual list can be found somewhere on the fcc website. Do a search on GMRS and I think you'll get there.

 

Have fun!

I also have GMRS license (I rarely use GMRS though). I believe the license covers all family members living in the call holders household.

With that wide open policy, there are at least a couple of US States that would only need a single license for the entire population! :P

a "family license" and I have hear that it is an individual license. Which is it?

"individual" is in contrast to "other entity," like a business or a club, which used to be allowed to get a GMRS license.

 

Now the license is only issued to an individual, and that individual is allowed to let his family operate his station.
