* FCC FRS channel numbers commonly used on 22 channel radios are shown in the leftmost column.
 +
* Most 22 channel radios of this type, formerly marketed as GMRS/FRS combination radios that are not capable of repeater operation, do not include the repeater input frequencies, have a maximum power of 2 watts and a non-detachable antenna, have been reclassified as FRS radios.

2017 FRS/GMRS Channels

  • FCC rule changes effective September 28, 2017. For more information see:
  • FCC FRS channel numbers commonly used on 22 channel radios are shown in the leftmost column.
  • Most 22 channel radios of this type, formerly marketed as GMRS/FRS combination radios that are not capable of repeater operation, do not include the repeater input frequencies, have a maximum power of 2 watts and a non-detachable antenna, have been reclassified as FRS radios.

Notes

Old FRS/GMRS Channels

  • Mostly obsolete as of September 28, 2017.
  • FRS radios with 14 (or fewer) channels and up to 1/2 watt power output are still manufactured and sold.

Notes

Midland Extra Channels

Midland has several radios with "Extra Channels". These extra channels are simply existing FRS/GMRS frequencies with hard coded tones, and fixed low power on the 467 MHz channels.
