You need a GMRS License to operate on these frequencies. I think they are mostly used for idle chatter around. There are several in use on the island. I cant remember the site that had all of the GMRS repeaters in the area. Im sure you can google it and find something.

we use gmrs and had to get fcc licensed for nassau react ...not as a whole but each indy. radio carrier in the team .as for frs it constantly kicks the repeater off when there is an event at the aquatic center in e.meadow lots of headaches fcc should have thought a little harder on this one

I just found this out today:
If anyone is interested in GEOCACHING use the following FRS Channels to find other 'GEOCACHERS' while on the hunt -
FRS CH 2 - GEOCACHING Primary Freq
FRS CH 12 - GEOCACHING Secondary Freq.

No, you do not need a Ham License to have a GMRS license. All you need to to apply to the FCC for your GMRS license. Search the FCC website for the forms.

Pay your fee, and your family is covered.. Yes, there are repeaters..

Take care of yourself, and each other....
