Power changes on FRS freqs

Recommended Posts

Been using FRS radios for decades and only recently learned that the newer FRS radios are rated at 1/2 watt AND now 2 watts.  I also just recently became aware that channels 1-7 can be used at 2 watts, 8-14 are limited to 1/2 watt and 15-22 can also use 2 watts.

So the question is... on these newer FRS radios, does the transmit power automatically change depending on the channels you're on?  In other words if on channels 1-7 and 15-22 the radio is automatically on 2 watts, if on 8-12 it automatically switches to  1/2 watt?
