Multi-Use Radio Service

From The RadioReference Wiki

(Redirected from MURS)

The Multi-Use Radio Service, or MURS, is a low power, short range, unlicensed personal radio service in the 150 MHz band.

MURS is intended for short-range local voice or data communications. Antenna height is limited to 20 feet above structure or 60 feet above ground, whichever is the greater. Very narrow bandwidth transmissions (maximum 11.25 kHz channel bandwidth, with +/- 2.5 kHz deviation) are permissible on all five MURS channels. The older +/- 5 kHz deviation signals (with a maximum 20 kHz channel bandwidth) are also permitted (but not required) on the two upper channels (in the 154 MHz band).
