License. GMRS shares FRS frequencies. If you have a
GMRS license, and use high power (e.g., 50 watts) on a "

emergency nets without interference from other neighborhoods
operating at the exact same time during an emergency. The
frequency coordination between all neighborhoods is critical and
cooperation is essential. Under the SER Plan, Higher power operations

Frequencies [used to coordinate all neighborhoods through Area
Coordinators (Hams)]. Please consider obtaining your Ham
