FRS freqs are 462.5625 Mhz to 467.7125 Mhz (Ch 1 through 14) ...GMRS freqs are 462.550 to 462.725 (Ch 15 through 22)..And the CB freqs here in the States is 26.965 to 27.405 Mhz.our cb radios are mostly 27 meg. i'm not sure what frequency frs and gmrs operate on but truck drivers use 27meg radios
I'm going with the MURS (Multi Use Radio System) radios which is VHF-hi, somewhere in/near the 150MHz range, and are usable throughout the US (except within 5 miles or so from the Canadian border) without a license. They're FM and run at 2 watts, compared to the FRS which is UHF at 500mW. I do believe you need a license for the GMRS, and no license is required for the FRS.I give in ... what's FRS & GMRS ?
Further on. . . . I enquired -via PEI Canada - from a guy who is "into it" on the IOM & received the following :
UK truckers use 27Mhz, 477Mhz is in the 70cms band & NOT legal in UK. Don't think it is legal in U,S.without radio ham licence or Gov. licence. UHF is very short range & line of sight, unlike 27Mhz which will work to Aus if conditions are good.
Years ago, like in the mid 70's when 27 Meg was all the go in Oz, the sets had to be licensed. Despite the use of detecting vans & operators with more search & seize power than a copper, control & policing the regs became impossible. So in the end the law gave in to superior numbers & the need for a license was dropped. Even now, there is no requirement for CB to be licensed.
To get back to the original query about an intergrated UHF CB for me GW: It seems like it's gonna be a non-event !??
Thanks to you all for your input
No Problem.. The FRS/GMRS radios sell up here for $20 to $60 per pair. Hunters, hikers, campers, and a lot of people are going to them. They are cheap and work like a charm. Here is a link to Cobra where you can get some idea of what I'm talking about.Bloody hell .......... now I have the explanation !
Thanks for that DreamWeaver
I realise what you are after, just suggesting he probably wouldnt mind chatting about your desired setup. I know of someone who did a setup in the boot, but it wasn't wired into the wing controlsThanks Scones have had a look that way but again not integrated just a add on.
Unit could be put in trunk as per original
