Since September 2004 low-power GMRS radios and dual-standard GMRS/FRS radios have been approved for use in the U.S. and Canada, giving additional channels. Since tourists often bring their FRS radios with them, and since trade between the US, Canada, and Mexico is of great value to all three countries, the Mexican Federal Telecommunications Commission has authorized use of the FRS frequencies and equipment similar to that in the US. However, dual-mode GMRS/FRS equipment is not approved in Mexico, so caution should be exercised in operating FRS devices purchased elsewhere. FRS is an American description. In Europe, a similar Service with the same sort of licensing restriction is PMR446 having eight Channels in the 446MHz range. Thus one cannot legally use the FRS Radio in Europe or PMR446 in the USA. Further, some Caribbean nations use the GMRS frequencies for government or security purposes. Use extreme caution outside the US or Mexico, otherwise you may have an unpleasant experience with local authorities, including fines or confiscation.
