The Federal Communications Commission has recently clarified that a license is required to use radios on the General Mobile Radio Services (GMRS) frequencies.

The EVCNB recommends that all Yellow Radio users get a GMRS License and call sign.

A GMRS license is good for ten years, is valid for the licensee’s immediate family, and costs $70.
