    It isn't just enforcement. ANY radio that is cheap and available retail will overwhelm any enforcement efforts. Look at GMRS. Now that these "long range FRS" radios are cheap enough the licenses users of that band will be in a very small minority. I guess we can thank them for keeping the freebanders off the VHF ham bands.

I HAVE FOUND ALOT OF FOUL MOUTHS ON THE HAM BANDS TO, I WISH SOME ONE WOULD LOG AND LISTEN AND REPORT THOSE VIOLATIONS AND BE WILLING TO TRAVEL ONE THOUSAND MILES TO DO IT! DO WE KNOW ANYONE WILLING TO DO THAT? [​IMG]

    You wish someone else to do your logging and recording on Hams? Why not yourself? Your aware of the problem, you do the work. You volunteered yourself didn't you?
    Working, driving a truck to put food on the table is a no excuse for violating Federal Law when it comes to Federally Licensed Frequencies, Mr.
    I guess truck's are the sole means of transporting radio's and stuff? Thanks for the chuckle.
    I thought you were on the TRASH link unit33.

    [​IMG] This makes me laugh. Because "they" might deliver our goods, its OK or not "so illegal" to use the frequencies without proper licensing? Why have a license at all?

    [​IMG] BTW: You're right, it isn't just enforcement. The bubble-pack GMRS radios are type accepted so the FCC knows very well what they are capable of![​IMG]

    I even got a couple FRS here myself & use one radio to simplex repeat lets just say "other audio sources" rather than attract the "retentive ones" by doing it on ham freqs. All I need is to cover my 40 acres which on UHF, I can do on leaky RG-58A/U coax & a dummy load! FRS ( & b-pack GMRS) radios have their great advantages! Low power, very versatile, no license, no hassles, hand them to your wife or anyone else without having to worry about what is said & license constrictions...[​IMG]
