The Basics

General Mobile Radio Service

The GMRS is a licensed radio service that lets users of handheld, vehicle mounted and base radio devices communicate with one another.

As the service allows access to sophisticated equipment, communications over distances of a few to thousands of miles are possible.


Licensees may run up to 50 Watts of power on equipment certified for the service, including consumer radios as well as professional equipment.

Family Licensed

A single GMRS license covers you and your entire family, including the in-laws. Only one person needs to apply with the FCC, there is no exam!
