I bought 2 UV-5R radios which I have mounted in 2 of my vehicles for Weather information while we travel. They are little nifty and cool radios.
Are there any frequencies that the FCC would allow for Unlicensed 2 Way operation?
I did research and clearly the FRS (Family Radio Service) and GMRS (General Mobile Radio Service) wouldn’t be allowable due to the UV-5R’s Capability as it exceeds these limits.
Wikipedia has displayed 151.505 MHz Itinerant, Red Dot 151.625 MHz Itinerant, and so fourth, but it’s not clear anywhere online weather the UV-5R is clearly acceptable for use on those channels or anything stating the requirements of them.
I’d rarely use it to transmit but I wouldn’t mind having some frequency on there should I need to communicate between vehicles as in rare cases we do travel as a group.
Any bit of information would be appreciated.
