Traveling from Arkansas to Nashville, TN, today I did pick up some sporadic conversations. A couple of them sounded like workers of some sort (construction, I assume) but I wasn't sure (was only clear briefly). The times I've monitored the GMRS channels I've never heard anyone give a call sign.

Tony, it would help if you simply ignore the Frs channels, I quit listening to them a long time ago for obvious reasons. Now being licensed for GMRS it's a different story. Simply advise the kids repeatedly, to go to ch.1 or ch.14 until they do, eventually they will quit. I only monitor the GMRS channels and ignore the Frs splits.

Lot of businesses and construction use FRS in Canada, even though not intended for this. As the name states: Family Radio Service. Here and see more of this during the summer with road construction and flag people controlling roads. Is generally better than listen to kids playing, until the construction people think other cannot hear them and start swearing with every second word a swear word. Glad I have scan on.

I heard this myself the other day. Two brothers were playing cops and calling each other "Officer." They arrested their sister for the crime of "smelly farts."
