What are the FCC requirements to setup a GMRS repeater?

I assume no more the. 50 watts?

Is their a requirement to broadcast call sign every so often like HAM?

What about antenna placement?

50 Watts is the absolute limit on GMRS.

A call sign must be broadcast every 15 minutes.

Antenna regulations

50 Watts is the absolute limit on GMRS.
A call sign must be broadcast every 15 minutes.

. You might want to check that. The only time it MUST be transmitted is while in use. Not every 15 min 24/7. 95.1751 GMRS station identification.
Each GMRS station must be identified by transmission of its FCC-assigned call sign at the end of transmissions and at periodic intervals during transmissions except as provided in paragraph © of this section. A unit number may be included after the call sign in the identification.

(a) The GMRS station call sign must be transmitted:

(1) Following a single transmission or a series of transmissions; and,

(2) After 15 minutes and at least once every 15 minutes thereafter during a series of transmissions lasting more than 15 minutes.

(B) The call sign must be transmitted using voice in the English language or international Morse code telegraphy using an audible tone.

© Any GMRS repeater station is not required to transmit station identification if:

(1) It retransmits only communications from GMRS stations operating under authority of the individual license under which it operates; and,

(2) The GMRS stations whose communications are retransmitted are properly identified in accordance with this section.

You are, of course, correct. I was trying to give a basic answer to someone who had some pretty basic questions.
