Multi-Use Radio Service Frequency Table

This table is the frequency chart for the legal Multi-Use Radio Service. There are 5 designated frequencies. MURS does NOT use split and shift operations and has no specific frequency range; only specific frequencies. MURS, as it is called, uses certified public use grade, VHF-FM radios similar to those used by others in Personal Radio Services. Expect a communication range of one to three miles, generally line of sight; significantly less if not (LOS). No license is required by the (FCC). The current regulations provide your authority to operate a MURS unit in places where the FCC regulates radiocommunications, as long as you use only an unmodified FCC certificated MURS unit. An FCC certificated unit has an identifying label placed on it by the manufacturer. You may operate your MURS unit within the territorial limits of the fifty United States, the District of Columbia, and the Caribbean and Pacific Insular areas ("U.S."). You may also operate your MURS on or over any other area of the world, except within the territorial limits of areas where radio communications are regulated by another agency of the U.S. or within the territorial limits of any foreign government. You may also be permitted to use your MURS unit in Canada subject to the rules of Industry Canada; other countries may also allow MURS frequency use but it is your responsibility to verify that prior to use.

The MURS was officially adopted by the FCC on November 15, 2000; this page was created the same day. MURS uses narrowband FM (NBFM) with maximum effective radiated power of 2 watts; it is possible that exceptions can be made by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). MURS is one of five Citizens Band Radio Services. The others are the (original) Citizens Band Radio Service at 27 MHz, the Low Power Radio Service (LPRS) at 216-217 MHz, and the Medical Implant Communications Service (MICS), the Family Radio Service (FRS) at 460 MHz, and the Wireless Medical Telemetry Service (WMTS). MURS is intended for hand-held, short-range local mobile communications, although some exceptions are permitted; certain kinds of brief and burst data and image transmissions from MURS units specifically certified for the operations of that type. MURS, CB, GMRS, FRS, WMTS and LPRS are all members of the Personal Radio Services as designated by the FCC. The Personal Radio Services should not be confused with the Personal Communications Services (PCS) in the 900 and 1900 MHz bands. For complete licensing information, see the FCC license information, here. This is the link to the FCC personal radio services available.
