95.2731   Permissible MURS uses.

The operator of a MURS station may use it for the purposes listed in this section.


(a ) MURS stations may be used to transmit voice, data or image signals.

(b ) MURS stations may be used for telecommand and telemetry functions.



95.2733   Prohibited MURS uses.

MURS stations must not be operated as repeater stations or signal boosters. This prohibition includes store-and-forward packet operation



2 Watt power limitations and no repeaters of any kind, but that's about it.  Businesses use MURS all over the country.

Yes, that is a typical (and legal) use of MURS radio.

Perfectly fine, in fact we use MURS as a back-up and BS channel for when the repeater goes down, [Or for when we want to discuss something without the PD or supervisors hearing] MURS doesn't cover the entire property but we can get a few blocks range, especially when on the beach.
