Can I use a GMRS license for my business? No. The FCC licenses GMRS for personal use only and includes only the licensee and their immediate family members.

Per FCC rule 95.5 (b) A non-individual (an entity other than an individual) is ineligiable to obtain a new GMRS system license or make a major modification to an existing. (c) (1) The non-individual is partnership and each partner is 18 years of age or older a corporation, an association, a state, territorial, or local government unit; or a legal entity.

Can I use FRS radios for my business? Yes. Recent changes to FCC rules now allow FRS for business usage. However, most businesses find that due to the shared use causing interference and FCC power limitations having weak signals, these radios do not work well for business needs.

I already have radios. Can I use your licensing service? Yes. We can license you for radios you currently own.
