With a GMRS license how often is one required to announce their FCC call-sign? Someone once told me every 15 minutes or so if you are having a long conversation. Is this true? Or more often? s there a place to find “the rules”…?
Found here: FCC Rules for the General Mobile Radio Service
[i]95.119 Station identification.
(a) Except as provided in paragraph (e), every GMRS station must transmit a station identification:
(1) Following the transmission of communications or a series of communications; and
(2) Every 15 minutes during a long transmission.
(b) The station identification is the call sign assigned to the GMRS station or system.
© A unit number may be included after the call sign in the identification.
(d) The station identification must be transmitted in:
(1) Voice in the English language; or
(2) International Morse code telegraphy.
(e) A station need not identify its transmissions if it automatically retransmits communications from another station which are properly identified. [/i]
