Hello! I am new to the form but have had my GMRS license for a couple of years.

Here is my question, can I legally us a simplex repeater with a 50 watt mobile radio? After reading some threads on this forum there does not seem to be a defendant answer. Am I just missing something? Thanks

It'd be a base or mobile station, and thus authorized 50 watts. However, I don't believe simplex repeater operation is permitted under automatic control as the definition of a repeater station mentions a requirement for simultaneous retransmission, and only repeater stations are authorized for automatic control.
