Most of us use radios that have FRS (non-regulated) channels for training, for those who have radios with GMRS (regulated) features as well, have you ever registered or licensed the radios?

I know the GMRS channels are very powerful, and greatly improves the distance between radios, and there are group packets etc., but is that all?

I use my radios for training, hunting, traveling, and skiing. Last year while in the mountains at Vail our reception sucked between radios. I'm wondering if GMRS would help.

I looked into this....major pain in the butt!!!!! It is also something like $50-75 per radio for the Liscense. No way for me!!!

You can go to the FCC's web site and download a PDF form if you want to do it.
