Default GMRS repeater

I want to set up a gmrs repeater for my community. How do I do that legally? Do I need a GMRS license of some kind? Thank you

Yes - A specific license for the GMRS repeater itself is not required, but you would need a GMRS license (covers you and your immediate family members) and every other GMRS user would require their own license to cover themselves (and their immediate family members). The FCC rules list which relatives are considered immediate family, but it is fairly broad.

The GMRS license term was recently extended from five years to ten years. You can find the GMRS rules in Part 95 of the FCC regulations.
