Notice a problem or error on FCC.gov?

GMRS is not properly described on the new FCC Website

There is no mention of the allowed use of repeater stations. There is also no mention of the fact that GMRS is operates under Part 95 and is therefore not subject to the impending narrowbanding that business and public service radio are about to convert to. Instead of the 50 watt limit that GMRS is actually allowed, only a 5 watts are mentioned and, a ridiculous claim of 25 mile range from this 5 watts is claimed. Please correct these omissions and grave exaggerations. GMRS is regulated and professional unlike the unregulated FRS

        I love using the GMRS service and I too wish that the description of GMRS on the site had better information for those that wonder about getting a license.
