Family Radio Service

UHF 462 MHz/467 MHz replacement (or rather supplement) to the CB radio service. Short range walkie talkie radios, nearly endless uses. Popular with private individuals, businesses, families, security services, etc. The FRS channels are shared with the GMRS service. All users must share channels with each other. However, there are "recommended use" assignments for specific channels (much like the CB Radio, MURS and GMRS services).

Legal for use by individuals, families and businesses. All 22 channels are available for simplex use without a license.

FRS Frequently Asked Questions FRS FAQ

  • Do you need a license to use the 22 FRS channels? No, you do not need a license to use all 22 FRS frequencies. Transmitting more than 2 watts on the 462 MHz channels requires a GMRS license, however.
  • Are the "color dot" frequencies license free or part of FRS? Yes and no. The old White Dot (462.575 MHz), Black Dot (462.625 MHz) and Orange Dot (462.675 MHz) are now part of the FRS and GMRS services. Use of those three frequencies is legal without a license for business purposes under the FRS rules. Other color dot channels (151.625 MHz, 151.955 MHz, 464.550 MHz, 464.500 MHz, etc.) require FCC licensing. The 154.570 MHz and 154.600 MHz MURS channels were previously color dot channels as well - and those are license free under the MURS service.*Are Baofeng radios illegal? or Are Baofeng radios legal? This is a gray area. If you use the MURS or FRS frequencies you should be just fine. Do not use the default out of the box channels unless the radio comes programmed with the FRS channels out of the box. Make sure to use narrow band mode on the MURS and FRS/GMRS frequencies. Certain radios are FCC type accepted for Part 95 use. Examples include the Baofeng Baofeng Tech BTECH MURS-V1 and GMRS-V1 radios currently available on the market.
  • Are FRS channels part of the CB radio service? Legally and technically, yes. FRS is included under Part 95 of the FCC rules, as an unlicensed Personal Radio Service. Like CB, and MURS, FRS is designed as a short range voice and data radio service for personal, family, business and any other use by members of the public. FRS is not designed for public safety purposes. The government and military are specifically prohibited from using FRS radios.
  • What are the FRS channels? I want to program them in my Baofeng, Hytera, Motorola, Kenwood, Icom, etc. See the section above listing the 22 FRS frequencies. Remember to use narrow deviation FM mode (on Baofeng radios this is the NARR/WIDE or NFM/FM setting - do not use WIDE or FM - use NFM/NARR. Program in whichever CTCSS or DCS (PL or DPL) tone or codes you wish to use on whichever channels you wish to use.

If you're programming a set of radios for a work crew, special events, etc., you will want to be sure to avoid commonly used channel and code combinations to reduce interference. See a list of recommended channel and code combinations here to avoid interference.

If you want to avoid interference from other users, do not use common codes such as 67.0 Hz, 023N DCS (DPL 023), 77.0 Hz, and the like. See commonly used channel and code combinations below as well as recommended FRS channel and tone/code combinations in a separate subsection.

FRS Information and Discussion

FRS is a license free two-way radio service regulated under Part 95 of the FCC rules - Personal Radio Services. FRS is widely used nationwide - 22 channels available, 15 of which are shared with the GMRS service. See also MURS. FRS is heavily used by private individuals, traveling groups for car-to-car communications, businesses, at construction sites and for various other purposes, including illegal activities and criminal enterprises. Since it is one of the most popular unlicensed personal radio services, FRS radios are found worldwide (even though they are only legal in the USA and are allowed in Canada, Mexico and other Latin American countries with some restrictions. Canada allows simplex-only use of all 22 FRS frequencies without a license requirement.

The easy accessibility to low cost FRS equipment, simple-to-use radios and short range mean that drug dealers have been confirmed to use FRS to communicate with lookouts, etc. in several cities in the USA. In urban areas it is often possible to hear several different groups using several of the FRS frequencies at once with a respectable listening setup or even with a handheld VHF/UHF scanner located in a good spot high up for improved line of sight coverage. In urban areas, street-level handheld FRS range is often only around 1 mile or even less in heavily built-up areas. In rural areas or in high-up locations the range can increase significantly to dozens of miles.

At legal power levels (2 watts for channels 1-7 and 15-22, 0.5 watts/500mw for channels 8-14) FRS radio range is highly dependent open location of transmitting and receiving radios as well as obstructions. From mountaintop to mountaintop very long range communications can be realized.

FRS is similar to the UHF CB service in Australia and New Zealand the PMR446 service (and to a lesser extent, the LPD433 service) in Europe and the UK as well as various other VHF/UHF personal radio services throughout the world. It is often what laymen think of when they think about walkie talkies.

In late 2017, the FCC changed the rules to accommodate the vast majority of "bubble pack pirates" operating higher power and/or operating on the 8 GMRS only frequencies. FRS now consists of 22 channels, 15 of which are shared with GMRS. Power limit is 2 watts on the 462 MHz channels, and 0.5 watts on the 467 MHz channels. The FRS rules were also modified to prohibit the sale of FRS/GMRS "combination" radios - effectively classifying all existing FRS/GMRS radios on the market as FRS radios only and removing the license requirement.

Transmission of data signals on the FRS channels is also now permitted under the updated Part 95 rules. Text messages, GPS location information, automatic range transponder functions “pinging” and other data and telemetry features are allowed on the FRS frequencies. Tone bursts, including alert tones and data transmissions, most not exceed 10 seconds in length, except in an emergency. This includes in band audio signaling (selective calling, DTMF, ANI, etc.)

14 channel radios operating under the previous rules remain legal and the prohibition against removable antennas remains in effect. All transmissions must be made in narrow band FM, 11.3 kHz or less bandwidth. This usually translates to 11K0F3E emission. Data transmissions must be in FSK mode and follow the narrow band requirement. Note that GMRS users are not required to use narrow band FM and many continue to use regular "wide" FM - 20K0F3E emission or 16K0F3E emission on the 8 GMRS frequencies (FRS channels 15-22). Narrow band is recommended on all frequencies. However, older-style "combination" FRS/GMRS handheld radios operate narrow band FM only on the 462 MHz and 467 MHz frequencies.

Late 2010s/early 2020s Chinese manufactured and sold FRS units with FCC Part 95 FRS radio authorization indicate emission types including 10K0F3E for all 22 channels (462 MHz - 467 MHz), 12K0F3E emission, 9K64F3E emission, 11K3F3E emission, 11K0F3E emission, 8K00F3E emission and other bandwidths, including super-narrow FM emission 5K81F3E, 6K00F3E, 5K75F3E and others.

Some of these radios are clearly marketed as children's walkie-talkies and offer only 50mw-100mw transmit power (compared to higher-end radios, even Chinese radios, which offer 500mw to 1 watt to 2 watt power output on the 462 MHz frequencies). Cheap children's walkie talkies designed for short range purposes transmit 250mw on 462.55 MHz - 467.7125 MHz, with emission type 9K64F3E on 462.55 MHz - 462.725 MHz and emission 9K69F3E on 467.5625 MHz - 467.7125 MHz. Almost all of these lower-grade transceivers offer all 22 channels, and simply transmit below the 500mw power limit for FRS on all 22 FRS channels.

Midland FRS GMRS 50 Channel Radios

Midland GXT series (GXT1000, GXT1000VP, GXT1000VP4, GXT1030, GXT1050, GXT2050 and numerous other model numbers) 50 channel walkie talkies. These are FRS radios sold with extra channels or additional channels. Instead of 22 channels, they come with 50 channels. Channels 1-22 are FRS channels 1-22. Like most FRS radios, the CTCSS/DCS subchannel or “subcode” is user-selectable on channels 1-22. Users maybe select carrier squelch (CSQ, no code or “code 0”) CTCSS tones or DCS codes as a subchannel, “privacy code” or subcode. For example, FRS channel 7 with CTCSS tone 156.7 Hz would be channel 7, code 25. This would appear on the radio display as channel 7-25.

Nearly all FRS radios default to either carrier squelch on channels 1-22 or code 1, CTCSS or PL code 67.0 Hz. Midland numbers the 38 CTCSS codes as 0-38 (0 being carrier squelch, then standard PL codes 1-38). For DCS codes, Midland radios start back over at 1 and go up to 104. For the DCS / DPL privacy codes, Midland radios use a non-standard numbering scheme.

Channel 23 to Channel 50 are FRS channels with CTCSS / PL or DCS / DPL tones or codes hard-programmed with each channel.


On channels 23-50, only the channel may be selected, no sub-code or sub-channels may be changed on the extra channels 23 through 50.

This feature allows users to quickly change to a different channel and PL or DPL code to escape interference without having to change channel and then change code. Instead, all users would simply “go to channel 46” instead of “go to channel 15, subchannel 2” on their walkie talkies.

Recommended FRS Channel Frequency Code (Tone) Subchannel DCS CTCSS Combinations

The opposite of the commonly used tones/codes list - intended as guidance for somebody programming radios for a work crew, special event, radio rental, custom programming Baofeng BF-888S, BF-88A, UV-5R, UV-82, BTECH GMRS-V1 or similar field-programmable radios. See sister section for business radio frequencies.

  • On 22 channel FRS radios, the CTCSS and DCS codes are given a numerical designation. The first set of recommended tones/codes goes by the most commonly used 121 privacy code convention - 38 CTCSS tones + 83 DCS codes.
  • On Baofeng radios, CTCSS (PL) is set under the R-CTCS and T-CTCS settings (both should be the same for transmit and receive tone squelch). Programming a CTCSS code for transmit only will leave the radio in carrier squelch receive (CSQ) mode, and all signals on a given channel will be heard. For all radios to talk to each other and reduce interference effectively, the R-CTCS and T-CTCS codes must match exactly. For example, if programming radios to use CTCSS tone 123.0 Hz, all radios must have their T-CTCS and R-CTCS set to 123.0HZ.
  • On Baofeng radios, DCS (DPL) is set under the R-DCS and T-DCS settings (both should be the same for transmit and receive code squelch). Programming a DCS code for transmit only will leave the radio in carrier squelch receive (CSQ) mode, and all signals on a given channel will be heard. For all radios to talk to each other and reduce interference effectively, the R-DCS and T-DCS codes must match exactly. For example, if programming radios to use DCS code 243, all radios must have their T-DCS set to D243N and their R-DCS set to D243N. Use of inverted DCS tones is not recommended. D243I is not the same as D243N.
  • It is possible to alternate between DCS and CTCSS from one channel to another, but this can quickly become complicated if programming a fleet of radios. For this reason, it is recommended that you stick with one code or tone, or a set of 2-3 codes/tones for an entire channel plan.

Original 14 Channel FRS Channels

500mW 14-channel walkie talkies, the original FRS specification. Radio Shack lobbied the FCC heavily in the 1990s to create a new license-free Part 95 radio service with more range and less interference than [Part_15|Part 15] 49 MHz walkie talkies and without the interference problems that plague the 27 MHz AM CB radio band. Motorola quickly entered the market with their Talkabout walkie talkies, followed by Kenwood, Icom, Maxon, Midland and numerous other consumer electronics companies.

These radios are still permitted under FCC rules, but have largely been replaced by 22-channel walkie talkies.

Original 15 Channel FRS-GMRS Channels

Before the 22-channel dual service FRS/GMRS radios became popular, these 462 MHz GMRS only 4 watt or 5 watt GMRS walkie talkies that were often sold as a more “professional” version of FRS. Up to 5 watt power on all 15 channels. GMRS license required. The proliferation of 15-channel GMRS walkie talkie radios and 22-channel FRS/GMRS dual-service or dual-use radios led the FCC to change the rules to add the 8 GMRS simplex channels to FRS (with a 2 watt power limit) and make FRS/GMRS combination radios or dual-use radios illegal. All FRS/GMRS combination radios with transmitter output power of 2 watts or less legally turned into 22 channel FRS radios the rule change.

Wireless Intercom Systems FM Intercoms

Numerous intercom systems, including doorbell intercom systems, use the FRS frequencies, often with DCS (DPL) and CTCSS (PL) codes and tones to make different "groups" in combination with frequencies/channels. Several of these devices offer a monitor, transmit lock, baby monitor or open-mic option, with time out timers that turn the transmitter off after a certain amount of time (usually 8 hours or 10 hours). While some intercoms only transmit in the 200mW to 300mW range, higher-end versions transmit 500mW with efficient antennas.

These wireless intercom systems generally include a GROUP CALL or HOME channel feature, that switches all intercoms to a dedicated channel/code combination. Most intercoms use a subset of the 22 FRS channels, there are 22 channel wireless intercoms on the market that feature all 22 FRS frequencies as well as numerous interference eliminator codes or group codes. Mid-range models usually have a 3-position CODE or GROUP CODE switch that selects the CTCSS or DCS tone or code for that intercom network to use.
