What's The Difference Between GMRS & FRS...



What's The Difference Between GMRS & FRS you ask?

Well for one, FRS radios have lower transmit power (like .5 watts of RF power output), must not have the ability to remove the antenna, and FRS channels require no license to transmit on them.

GMRS radios can run more power (up to and a max of 50 watts with no max on ERP) and GMRS users may use handhelds with removable and more effective antennas, and GMRS channels require a license (about $70.00) to operate on the GMRS frequencies and said license, once approved, are good now for ten years as issued from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

Each service (GMRS & FRS) has its own set of frequency channels, and they share some (seven) common channels with each other. Different makes and models of radios may use different channel numbers for the same frequency. It's best to obtain radio equipment with the channels all programmed the same...


Most GMRS and FRS radios have tone encoders and decoders that may go under the name of “privacy code”, “PL”, Privacy Plus or the like. Some people even have refered to it as encryption...it's not encryption.

Home of the USA GMRS Association

Welcome...
The USA GMRS Association will soon be the largest membership of General Mobile Radio Service (GMRS) users and the largest repeater cooperative in the United States with hundreds of GMRS licensees and their families operating on many local repeaters in an unprecedented user and sharing environment.

From North to South, East to West, and all points in between our Membership continues to grow everyday while maintaining traditional values in the use of and sharing cooperation of GMRS Repeaters and GMRS Frequencies. We are on a path of becoming a leader within GMRS and will continue to do so as we look toward the future.

Our mission is simple: To help forge a path that brings about new technology, better education, and hopefully better representation with FCC together in one place for all our members, and also one that will allow members to share resources and make GMRS a viable personal and family communications medium for as many licensees as possible.
