I'm trying to get my UV-5R+ to operate on GMRS channel 7 (462.7125) and Tone (Privacy Code) 85.4Hz.�� This would enable the radio to work with my Motorola Talkabout and my Vertex 400 series, which has been configured for 462.7125 and Tone 85.4.�� At the moment, my CTCSS settings in the BaoFeng must be wrong.�� I'm seeing transmit & receive indicators, but no audio.�� My Vertex is communicating with the Talkabout on 7,7, so I know the Vertex is configured correctly.

I'm programming the Baofeng via the RT Systems software, and here's the channel configuration:



What am I missing?

Thanks!

Hmm, when I go to Menu 11, it seems like it's OFF. I can scroll to 85.4, but how do I make it stick manually?

#25625 Apr 19, 2013

A simple, conclusive, and foolproof way to determine what FCC Parts a radio is certified for (and therefore what frequencies you may transmit a signal on) is the following:



1) go to fcc.gov

2) click on Transition.FCC.GOV (upper right-hand part of the page)

3)on the page that appears next, scroll down the page focusing on the right

side of the page. Under the heading "Offices" click on "Engineering and

Technology"

4) on the next page that appears, under the "Application Filing &info"

heading, click on "Equipment Authorization Search"

5) on the next page that appears, under the "FCC ID SEARCH FORM", there are

two boxes that require information. Required is the FCC certification

information (FCC ID: followed by the grantee code). This info can be found on a

label on the back of the radio or on the back of the radio under the battery. For example, the FCC ID for a Wouxun KG-UV6 is found by removing the battery and finding it on the smaller bottom label. The Wouxun code, found on that label, is WVTWOUXUN04.

6) The first three digits of a grantee code go in the top box titled

"Grantee Code" (under "Help") and the rest of the digits go in the box below that titled "Product Code". So wvt goes in the top box and wouxun04 goes in the "Procuct Code" box. Then click on "search".

7) On the next page, in the 3rd cloumn from the left, titled: "Display

Grant", click on the blue checkmark. This brings up the "Grant of Equipment Authorization". This is the definitive document. Check the 2nd column from the left headed "FCC Rule Parts". The radio is authorized on all parts listed in this column. Conversely, the radio is prohibited from transmitting a signal on any frequencies in any Part not listed in the column. The fact that a radio is technologically capable of transmitting on a given frequency, regardless of the radio's transmit power, is irellevant to whether it is permissable to transmit a signal on that frequency. In the case of Wouxun, the only number listed in the column is 90 which signifies Part 90.

Therefore, by definition, it is prohibited to use that radio to transmit signals on any frequencies in any Parts other than those frequencies in Part 90. Thus, Part 95 frequencies are included in the prohibition. By the way, no Chinese radio that I know of has yet been certified for any Part other than Part 90.

You, too, can try this at home with any radio brand by following the same steps listed above. It is simple, easy, and best of all, instantly conclusive.

You don't have to be a ham to use this radio. And yes the radio can be used

on GMRS since the power output is under 5 watts if you have a GMRS license.

Except for HF linears, and there are exceptions to that one can drive an Abramsthrough without touching anything, nothing is certified for Ham use--Hams can use any device, homebrewed, modified or otherwise, as long as it meets good

engineering standard(47 CFR 97.101(a)---any Ham can modify a GMRS orFRS or CB or MURS or other rig to Ham use and use it wihtin his license classpriviliges but he cant do that for a Ham rig to other services---remember Hams are

Your method is 100% accurate, according to the FCC... but there are many

here who insist that the FCC's own database is wrong because it shows the

BaoFeng UV-5R (and the Wouxun KG-UV920) as being Part 90 approved when both

radios clearly do not meet the technical standards for Part 90.



Personally I choose to believe the FCC's own database -- although it would

be interesting to see them bring a Notice of Apparent Liability before an

ALJ complaining that someone was using an "unauthorized" radio that the FCC

had already documented as being approved.

A simple, conclusive, and foolproof way to determine what FCC Parts a radio

is certified for (and therefore what frequencies you may transmit a signal

on) is the following:



----------------------------

#25669 Apr 19, 2013

What does 5 watts have to do with anything? GMRS permits up to 50 watts on certain frequencies (the primary 8 GMRS frequencies and their repeater input frequencies). It is only limited to 5 watts on the 7 interstitial channels shared with FRS. Others have already pointed out the legality issue with regard to Part 95 - this radio does not meet that requirement.

So your going to permantly solder the antenna? Gmrs and frs does not allow for removeable antenna.

GMRS does allow removable antennas. FRS does not. Therefore, to be legal, dual use GMRS/FRS radios must have non-removable antennas. Also, FRS channels only allow a 1/2 watt output.

We used to have a GMRS mobile unit in our work van if I recall correctly. You could

use any antenna on it including a base station antenna. I know FRS does not allow a removable antenna but never heard that regarding GMRS. Do you know under what part of the FCC that rule is found?
