Hi Keith:


Please keep in touch.   Our goal in the bay region is to identify the product manufacturer, model number and supplier (usually an Amazon dealer).    Pictures of the products label are really helpful.

Can you talk back? I’m sure their users would be perturbed if their monitors started talking back at random times.

Fixed stations are allowed to communicate with other fixed stations at up to 15 watts on the repeater input frequencies if you read the Part 95 rules to a tee - can a parked car be considered a fixed station?

Park a car on both sides of the building and have a conversation with your fixed station buddy about the prevalence of illegal baby monitors on federally regulated GMRS channels. It’s not intentional interference if you’re trying to work around pre-existing interference.

Talk-back is Plan B - we would likely need to be right on top of the receiver with a 50W radio to overcome its transmitter.    As these are senior care homes, nobody will let us enter, so we have to coax staff out so we can photograph the equipment and model number.     


Fixed station - officially, this will be our story; at 15 watts max  :)
