Unlike conventional radio station licenses, GMRS allowable emission types and bandwidths are specified in the rules. Your GMRS license then allows use of any permissible type. Here are the Part 95 sections on emission types and allowable bandwidth:
95.631 Emission types.
(a) A GMRS transmitter must transmit only emission types A1D, F1D, G1D, H1D, J1D, R1D, A3E, F3E, G3E, H3E, J3E or R3E. A non-voice emission is limited to selective calling or tone-operated squelch tones to establish or continue voice communications. See 95.181(g) and (h).
(b) [Pertains only to the Radio Control Radio Service.]
(c) [Pertains only to the Citizens Band Radio Service.]
(d) [Pertains only to the Family Radio Service.]
(e) No GMRS or CB transmitter shall employ a digital modulation or emission.
(f) No GMRS, CB or R/C transmitter shall transmit non-voice data.
95.633 Emission bandwidth.
(a) The authorized bandwidth (maximum permissible bandwidth of a transmission) for emission type H1D, J1D, R1D, H3E, J3E or R3E is 4 kHz. The authorized bandwidth for emission type AID or A3E is 8 kHz. The authorized bandwidth for emission type F1D, G1D, F3E or G3E is 20 kHz.
