Hello Awesome People!
I'm looking into the best way to accomplish a project. I work at a business and we are looking for some 2 way radios. We are looking to cover a 3 mile radius. We have a fairly tall building - couple put an attena and repeater on there if needed.
My research shows me conflicting information on GMRS in business. Some places claim it's allowed. Some don't. Some say the business itself has to be licensed. Others say each employee does.
So I am looking for clarification, and thought this would be a good place to ask.
1) Can I use GMRS in a business setting?
2) Can I license the business as a whole?
3) Searching FCC database here: wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsApp/UlsSearch/searchGmrs.jsp, it looks like 1 GMRS license in my area total. No freq's listed though.
Is this as simple as picking up some programmable Baofung radios that output 5w? Programming them in the GMRS space. Throwing a 50 watt repeater on the roof.
Looking forward to learning more.
