I recently purchased this radio which piqued my interest in HAM radio. I am taking the test next month and excited to learn more about everything. After researching my new walkie talkies I noticed that its FCC grant is for approximately 1.1W in the UHF GMRS frequencies. I have read several posts in these forums that say this radio is not to exceed it's 1.1W grant by by the FCC. I just called Powerwerx and asked if I am allowed to use 5W (I'm licensed). They said as long as I have a license, I'm allowed to use 5W with the TR-505. Is that true though? Their website says "Full 4 watts of transmit power for increased range and coverage area." It doesn't mention 5W.
