Is there a web page that gives the history of GMRS? Previous license requirements and other things? Thanks. WRCW870.

I made a blog post a while ago about the history of the Travel Tone on GMRS:

The Northshore Emergency Association has a very nice history of GMRS (formerly known as UHF Citizens' Band):

Here's another interesting read from Doug Smith at Popular Wireless:
