just my opinion , didnt say anything about a Bank ?
Heliograph mounted on roof?
"...or it is around here..." is the point, I'm afraid. Unlicensed operation is something we're supposed to discourage, not actively use when it's convenient. Use radios in a way that leads to no questions of propriety, and there won't be any.
Bottom line is NO you can't share your license. Each operator must have their own call sign.
But FRS radios would do the job and be legal. As long as there is a perfectly legal solotion, that would be the best solution from an engineering standpoint.
CB requires a much longer antenna to be efficient than FRS and if the vehicles are in a convoy, the less expensive FRS solution might be the best choice.
I'd go w/ GMRS. No-test license covers your family. Great antenna options. Good power output. Good for what you need + a whole lot more functionality for other scenarios where FRS or MURS would be underwhelming.
How about two very loud air horns and CW?
No license needed!
No need for that. You can send Morse with headlights and tail lights.
I believe they are probably unobtainium, but Radio Shack once had an FRS radio with an external microphone with the controls, along with a long power cord, and the radio itself had a magnetic base. It looked something like this:
Great idea, but as far as I can tell, nobody else ever made them.
