missinaz Posted July 11, 2020 Report Share Posted July 11, 2020 HelloI am new to GMRS radios. I have three GMRS-v1’s for the family. Do we need to identify our call sign even when using the channels shared with FRS? As an example. When using channels 8-14 the radio defaults to .5 watt - the same as a FRS radio. In fact, I believe the radio uses the same wattage for channels 1-14 as an FRS radio (2 watts pr .5 watt) Only when we go above into channels 15-30 can the radio broadcast true GMRS at 5 watts. I appreciate any help for a noob question. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
