Good point. Let me also just place a comprehensive Part 90 line item here for consideration...
47CFR90.407: Emergency Communications >
The licensee of any station authorized under this part may, during a period of emergency in which the normal communication facilities are disrupted as a result of hurricane, flood, earthquake or similar disaster, utilize such station for emergency communications in a manner other than that specified in the station authorization or in the rules and regulations governing the operation of such stations. The Commission may at any time order the discontinuance of such special use of the authorized facilities.
Now, let's look at the Part 95 line item that is worded in much less specific detail >
47CFR95.114: Managing a GMRS system in an emergency >
(a ) The stations in a GMRS system must cease transmitting when the station operator of any station on the same channel is communicating an emergency message (concerning the immediate protection of property or the safety of someone's life).
(b ) If necessary to communicate an emergency message from a station in a GMRS system, the licensee may permit:
(1 ) Anyone to be the station operator (see §95.179); and
(2 ) The station operator to communicate the emergency message to any radio station.
Has anyone ever received a ruling from the Commission regarding section (2 ) above and the words "any radio station" ?
