Licensing

For Products Used in the U.S.A.

FCC Licensing Required

This 2-way radio operates on GMRS (General Mobile Radio Service) frequencies 
which require an FCC (Federal Communications Commission) license. A user
must be licensed prior to operating on channels 1 through 7 or 15 through 22,
which comprise the GMRS channels of this radio. Serious penalties could result
for unlicensed use of GMRS channels, in violation of FCC rules, as stipulated in
the Communication Act’s Sections 501 and 502 (amended).

Licensed users will be issued a call sign by the FCC, which should be used 
for station identification when operating this radio. GMRS users should also
cooperate by engaging in permissible transmissions only, avoiding channel
interference with other GMRS users, and being prudent with the length 
of their transmission time.

For licensing information and application forms, please call the FCC Hotline at 
800-418-FORM. Request form #159 and form #605. Questions regarding the 
license application should be directed to the FCC at 888-CALL-FCC. Additional
information is available on the FCC’s website at www.fcc.gov.
