    Cool... GMRS is basically UHF Ham Radio without the Test...

    I do believe GMRS supports repeaters not FRS. GMRS because of the power limits also requires licensing, I think thats around 75 bucks maybe less.

    You're correct, GMRS users may use repeaters and use up to 50 Watts of RF output. Currently (a reduction is coming in the near future) the license is $75...

    Not really, I'm just trying to make Drivers and anyone else that's interested in short-range communications aware of their options...

    N GA has a fairly healthy selection of repeaters https://nggmrs.org/

    I have been listening to these guys for several days now and it is quite an active group

    Repeater owners are allowing users to transmit without ID?

    Well then if the range is as poor as has been portrayed by some here on this forum they're probably not bothering very many people
