Why would you even think of operating on GMRS without a license? A license is about $1 a month.
She travels a rural stretch of northern New Hampshire road to get to and from work.
Often at night she's coming home after 11 PM.
No cell service out there for miles.
If something happens, what's she to do?
So I bought the radio.
I see $70 for a license as a waste of money because the radio may never get used.
Would there be an issue to use the radio unlicensed in the event of an emergency that sends her car off the side of the road at midnight in a snowstorm that might dump anywhere between one three feet of snow???
The radio will NEVER get used otherwise so gimme a break.
