The FCC's new Family Radio Service and
General Mobile Radio Service frequencies with channel layout

Note: The FCC voted at its May 18, 2017, commission meeting on major changes to GMRS and FRS, including higher power for FRS and sharing of some GMRS channels with FRS. The new rules went into effect Sept. 28, 2017. These following frequencies are now divided and shared by FRS and GMRS as detailed.
