FRS and GMRS radios uses - FRS and GMRS 2-way radios are a great way to keep in constant touch with members of your party, whether on an outdoor adventure, vacation, road trip or at a crowded shopping mall or amusement park. With the ability to talk, hear and ring other radios within range, they're a lot like having a short-range cell phone - except without the usage fees and contracts. FRS and GMRS radios can also be used like a wireless intercom in and around the home to call someone out in the yard or on the far side of the house.
I read you loud and clear - These days FRS and GMRS radios are compact, quality transceivers that transmit and receive over greater distances and with superior clarity to "first-gen" walkie-talkies. They operate on UHF radio frequencies which are much less prone to the static and interference that plague CB (citizens band) radios. What that means in practical terms is a whole new range (no pun intended) of potential uses that just might justify putting an FRS or GMRS 2-way radio or two on your "must-have" electronics list.
