Giving GMRS Licensed Users A Way To Be Represented & A Way To Advance Their Communication Abilities Across America

Please Take Note On Changes That Need To Be Made At The FCC

The Amount Of Used Two-way Radio Equipment Available On The Market For Sale Today Is Becoming Slimmer And Slimmer. Soon There Will Be No Used Radios Available For Use On GMRS.

The majority of the older GMRS repeaters in use today are running old 25kHz analog repeaters. As those repeaters fail, GMRS repeater owners and potential repeater owners will begin to have a harder time finding good wide band gear like what has been available.

Even the mobile and portable radios that are being used to make portable repeaters will soon be gone.

New radios that are being manufactured today for part 90 use are not part 95 compliant. And, the manufactures of Part 95 gear for GMRS are not interested in expanding its line of GMRS radios to meet the challenges we Licensed GMRS operators are facing.

To many combo FRS/GMRS radios are being produced instead of quality GMRS radios. Even finding good quality new repeaters at a reasonable price is a joke.

In order for GMRS to stay viable for it's licensed users view and opinion on GMRS and the types of radios (can we say narrowband, digital) are going to have to change at the FCC.

Rules and regulation about part 95 compliance and/or certification needs to be updated to include those radios that are also included under Part 90.

Please send a letter or email to FCC asking them to make the changes necessary so that we GMRS licensed users will have radios available to us in the future.

We GMRS Licensed Operators are entitled to the same advanced technology in radio communications equipment as allow and being used in other bands.

Don't sit back and let others control what direction GMRS travels forward.


"Please Note: New for Van Zandt County, Texas this date of June 02, 2018. For those of you that live within the Van Zandt County, Texas area there will soon be a new "Five Star GMRS System" (five (5) new GMRS low power repeaters) installed and operational by the end of this year (if not by end of summer). These repeaters will be for the current and newly licensed GMRS members of the PWP within each precinct of Van Zandt County, Texas to use for communications with their family while out on community watch patrol. One Channel per each Precinct and one County wide channel. Working together to bring quality communications to family and friends within the communities of Van Zandt County, Texas. Although not designed to replace the local cellular phone systems, except during a disaster situation when all cellular phone sites may be down or unavailable for public use, it is just another tool in your tool box for having dependable communication around and within your communities. Please contact our office to obtain the specialty PL/DCS Two Tone Sequential Digital Codes needed for access to this "Five Star GMRS Repeater System". Other areas in adjoining counties will soon be part of this "Five Star GMRS System" and is projected to be operational in the same manner by summer of 2019. If this project proves to be functional and usable as designed we will be expanding it to any City, County, or State that request it to be installed. We here at USA GMRS Association are proud of the individuals stepping up and obtaining their GMRS license throughout the United States and welcome you all to the world of GMRS. Our advertisements, web pages, and community forums, along with social media, proves that we, and you as a licensed GMRS operator, are getting the word out about GMRS and aiding in the encouragement of those getting their license so they may use the channel legally. The expansion of our new "World Star GMRS Linking System" -- a statewide and nationwide multi-link system -- continues to expand in many states. Many of these linking networks are in place and are operational today. Some are even up and available to licensed GMRS users. Once there is at least a 60% coverage in each/all states we will turn the systems up and make it available for every licensed GMRS paid member of our USA GMRS Association. So keep an eye out as build out progresses daily. A Big Thank you to all of you from us here at the USA GMRS Association.

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

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 Click here To Read More
