Unlicensed GMRS operators are ruining the service for everyone. Thanks Uniden and Midland for creating this mess.
Where I place the blame are rogue licensed Hams who have gone crazy with the cheap chinese gear and feel that their Ham license gives them special privileges on the GMRS/FRS band. Sad part of it is that other Hams are complicit in the encouragement of this behavior because it gets that behavior off of their local Ham freqs.
It also looks as if the FCC is unwilling to bring an end to the lawlessness behavior considering that there has been over 2 FCC complaints and yet the unlicensed Repeaters (esp the illegal FRS simplex Repeaters) and their behavior continues.
