Everything You Want to Know about GMRS Radio
What is GMRS radio? Known as “Class A Citizens Band" while renamed by FCC in 1987, GMRS stands for General Mobile Radio Service, using the same frequency band as FRS's (462-467 MHz). The difference is that GMRS radios have designated channels within those frequencies that aren't available to FRS radios. Its use is covered by FCC Part 95, but requires a license to operate. According to the latest FCC rules, a personal GMRS license costs $35 (The new $35 GMRS and Amateur license application fees go into effect April 19, 2022!) and can be obtained online at https://www.fcc.gov/wireless/universal-licensing-system   How powerful is GMRS radio? Handheld GMRS units can put out up to 5 Watts of power, although 4-Watt handhelds are more common. While fixed-base stations can use up to 50 Watts on most frequencies, they are restricted to 5 Watts when communicating on the FRS channels. Repeater stations are allowed and can transmit as high as 50 Watts. Both fixed-base stations and repeaters can only transmit on the lower “462” frequencies, while handhelds can operate on any GMRS frequency. That means that a GMRS radio can have all the same capabilities as an FRS radio in addition to special channels that FRS can’t access, and the option to extend the range of the product. GMRS gear can include removable antennas, making it simple to use a handheld with a car mount or stationary antenna. Combined with the ability to use repeaters, GMRS can be used to communicate over considerable distances. If you’re looking for power and range with GMRS, check out Radioddity's best GMRS radios.   What is the difference betweeb FRS and GMRS radios? Referred to as "UHF Citizens Band", FRS stands for Family Radio Service. After May 18, 2017, FRS radios are limited to 2 Watts on channel 1-7 and channels 15–22. All 22 channels are shared with the GMRS radios. FRS radios come with fixed antennas, and cannot be legally modified to accommodate antennas or amplifiers. Different from GMRS, yon don't need a license to operate FRS radios.   In conclusion, what are the advantages of GMRS compared to FRS? 1. Increased Power, which means longer talking range. 2. Compatibility to FRS Radios 3. Repeater Capable 4. Lower Price 5. If you receive a license, any family member, regardless of age, can operate GMRS stations and units within the licensed system. Yes, husband, wife, kids, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc.   Am I qualified to get a GMRS radio? You may apply for a GMRS license if you are 18 years or older and not a representative of a foreign government. If you receive a license, any family member, regardless of age, can operate GMRS stations and units within the licensed system. To learn more: https://www.fcc.gov/general-mobile-radio-service-gmrs   Okay, how can I get a license? Simply go to FCC website to apply for a license. Note that you must register for a FRN as a Domestic Individual. This allows you to do business (ie. pay) the FCC. Once you receive your FRN, which typically happens moments after submitting the form, you are able to fill out the online application and purchase your GMRS license. Information directly from the FCC below. https://wireless2.fcc.gov/UlsEntry/licManager/login.jsp   When you get your license, now it's time to get your GMRS radios. We recommend the Radioddity GM-30 to you, which has lots of advanced features at a great price. 1. Sync display 2. Dual watch display 3. Max 5W power output 4. Enable to scan and receive the UHF VHF frequencies 5. Shortcut button to NOAA & NOAA scanning 6. Type-C charging 7. Enable to scan on a customized range 8. 3 ways of scanning,enable to save the active channel during the scanning process 9. Channel 31-54 can be programmed for GMRS repeaters, not limited to 8 repeater channels anymore.  
What is NOAA Weather Radio?
We've released a NOAA weather license-free radio (FRS & PMR446), which is with dual display and dual watch function, Radioddity FS-TI / PR-T1. Radioddity T1 comes with the function of automatically scanning through 10 available weather (WX) band channels and locking onto the strongest weather channel to alert you of severe weather updates.  Let's learn something about NOAA weather radios. This quick-to-read article will give you the instructions you need to be fully informed about Weather Service watches, warnings, forecasts and emergencies. An NOAA-equipped device is a “must have” when you’re out hiking, camping, skiing and for businesses that regularly operate outdoors. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is a scientific agency that’s part of the U.S. Department of Commerce. They report on ocean and atmospheric conditions and warn of dangerous weather approaching. Their nationwide radio station network, NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards (NWR), broadcasts continuously 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, issuing reports on all types of hazards, including natural disasters (avalanches, earthquakes), environmental disasters (oil spills and chemical releases) and public safety issues (such as 911 telephone outages, AMBER alerts or a terrorist attack). They work with the Federal Communication Commission’s (FCC) Emergency Alert System to be the single trusted source for all weather and emergency bulletins. Their extensive network of transmitters covers the entire U.S. How Can I Listen to NOAA Weather Radio? To listen to these important broadcasts, you’ll need a special receiver or scanner that can pick up the stations. The NOAA weather radio band can be found in standalone receivers designed to receive these specific frequencies and in multi-band receivers such as AM/FM radios, CB radios, shortwave receivers, VHF marine radios, scanners, car radios and GMRS/FRS two-way radios. NOAA stations broadcast in the VHF public service band and are found at these 7 frequencies (in MHz): 162.400, 162.425, 162.450, 162.475, 162.500, 162.525 and 162.550. Whether or not a two-way radio has built-in NOAA weather stations which will be indicated in the product’s details. To tune in to a weather channel, it’s typically as easy as pushing a single button, but this may vary between models. Check your owner’s manual for details. Channels 1 through 7 are the weather radio channels. Depending on your model of radio, a particular weather channel frequency will be assigned to a certain channel. Is My Area Covered by NOAA Weather Radio? To see the coverage in your particular region, see the NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards coverage map. They also provide a station listing by state, county coverage listing and transmitter search. Typing in your city or state and then clicking on the location on the map will bring up the transmitters in the area. Once you know the transmitter’s frequency, you can find which channel on your radio is programmed to it and then activate that channel according to your radio’s instructions. Why the NOAA Weather Radio Network is So Important For keeping all your family members and friends on a road trip or hiking adventure informed of an approaching storm, landslide or local flooding, a walkie-talkie system with NOAA radio stations is invaluable. It can be literally life-saving, in the event of an earthquake or a hurricane, and at the very least, knowing about a major tie-up due to a large-scale emergency can save valuable time that would otherwise be spent stuck in traffic. It’s a feature that’s even available on less expensive models, making them not just a smart but also an easy decision! Source: TECHWHOLESALE
