What is GMRS?
why do i need a gmrs?
GMRS licenses cover your immediate family so it's great for family outings, offroading, and hiking. The FCC has in recent years taken away GMRS as a business tool and made it more for family/personal use. So if you are a ham and have family members who are not it's perfect for you. Radios are inexpensive and easy to use. GMRS radios are compatible with the bubble pack radios you get at the big box stores and there is no test just an online form to fill out.
How do i get a gmrs license?
You will choose ZA General Mobile Radio (GMRS) from the drop down when asked to select service.
Then you just fill out the form and in a couple days you will have a call sign. It's super easy and only costs $35 for ten years, like mentioned before it covers your immediate family and the radios are easy to get, inexpensive, and easy to use.
