1. Certification

For everyone who has applied for a GMRS license on the FCC website, the first thing is to choose a compliant GMRS walkie-talkie in accordance with FCC regulations. Now the market is flooded with a large number of walkie-talkies claiming GMRS Radio, and there is actually no FCC certification, this is big trouble for people who want to choose a compliant GMRS walkie-talkie because a radio without FCC certification is not compliant and will bring you a lot of trouble. Here, in Retevis Solutions, we guarantee that all Retevis GMRS radios are FCC certified. Welcome to contact us to obtain the FCC ID of the model you are interested in.

2. Power

Power is also known as battery capacity. You must know how long you need your gmrs radio to last, so as to avoid the embarrassment of running out of power in an emergency. Generally speaking, GMRS radios have nickel-metal hydride batteries or lithium batteries, both of which are rechargeable batteries. Lithium batteries are preferable to nickel-metal hydride batteries because they work in a wider temperature range and will not be affected by the "memory effect". , And usually, last long after being fully charged. Compared to nickel-metal hydride batteries, lithium batteries are generally more durable.

In addition, lithium batteries have the longest shelf life, the longest service life after being fully charged, and the widest operating temperature range. If you plan to be outdoors for a long time, please make sure to choose a gmrs radio that can be used for a long time or has a replacement rechargeable battery to avoid running out of power, and then make sure that your backpack has sufficient spare batteries.

If you don't want the huge charging base to become a burden to activities, you can choose gmrs radio that can be charged via USB and connect it to a solar charger. Or in car travel, use car charging.

3. Weatherproofing

Whether you put the gmrs radio in an emergency backup bag or use it regularly, according to the nature of the day, at some point, your gmrs radio is likely to be exposed to the mild and pleasant early summer atmosphere, then the sky is blue, the sun is shining, and the breeze is blowing to keep you cool. Even if the beginning of the day starts like this, Mother Nature can reverse the situation in an instant, with thunderstorms in an instant. Therefore, the waterproof level of gmrs radio is an important consideration. Some models are completely non-waterproof, some are slightly splash-proof and can withstand light rain, and some are IPX7 waterproof. You can immerse it in a water depth of 1 meter for 30 minutes and take it out and still be able to use it normally.
   If you just use GMRS radio to keep daily communication, or sunny outdoors, then an ordinary GMRS radio can meet your needs. If you need to deal with the complex and changeable weather outdoors, such as a busy farm and work normally on rainy days, then you can choose the GMRS radio with IPX7 waterproof level.

4. Weather alert

Nature will never let you touch her temper. Choose a gmrs radio, which can play a dual role as a weather alarm radio and keep up to date with the latest alarms. The weather alert function is especially important for outdoor activities and preppers. There is a gmrs radio that continuously scans the NOAA channel and automatically sends an alarm when an alarm occurs. Some gmrs radios allow you to tune to the weather channel instead of just receiving alerts.

5. Weight and Size

When you carry everything you need, weight and size are the main factors. And you also have to consider these two factors for the children and the elderly in the family. The small and lightweight gmrs radio can be easily put in a bag, tied to a belt or put in a pocket without making you feel heavy. And the smaller gmrs radio is usually more economical than the larger gmrs radio, but the petite weight and bragging are usually the limitations of their functions, and their functions may be less or not so sturdy. The gmrs radios with compressive and impact-resistant structures tend to have larger dimensions, and are heavier and stronger. This also makes the rugged gmrs radio an ideal choice for those who have requirements for outdoor equipment.

6. Channels and Privacy Codes

All 22 Family Radio Service (FRS) frequencies are shared with GMRS, and users of the two services may communicate with each other. This situation in busy areas such as theme parks means that you will hear other people’s transmissions on the same channel, and you may inadvertently miss messages from your group members. Now, despite widespread misunderstandings, partly due to the term "privacy code", this feature does not actually guarantee private communications. Instead, it will help you filter out all transmissions that do not share your channel and code combination.


The privacy code essentially adds another layer of identification to your transmission and filters out all transmissions that do not have this identifier. However, anyone who uses the "monitor" function on your channel can hear your transmission. Some radios have more than 120 privacy codes, while Retevis GMRS radio has 282 privacy codes. When combined with the number of channels, your radio may have more than 84,600 possible combinations. The greater the number of channels, the greater the number of combinations. For those who may need to use both methods in busy places, or those with busy business, it is a wise choice to choose a radio with a large number of channel combinations.

7. Emergency features

Whether you are preparing for family theme park day activities, camping, hiking, hunting or any other outdoor activities, the alarm function is very important. When you need help, your gmrs radio can play a vital role. The gmrs radio with emergency alarm function will send alarm signals to other gmrs radios in your group. The type of alert varies by brand and model. Some combine alarms with beacons that flash SOS using the international Morse code, while others send loud alarms to other members of your team to stop any other activity on said radio and keep getting bigger, Until someone responds to your request.

You can find radios with "Local+remote Alarm" function. This is useful if you are out alone and find that you need help but cannot get a cell phone signal. He can send a warning signal to your teammates colleagues, and also remind others of your location by voice.

The flashlight is a very convenient emergency function. For preppers, it can give you one more lighting option or one less tool. For camping or expeditions, it is very useful at night, cave exploration or usually in low light conditions. However, you must know that using the flashlight for a long time will speed up the drain on the battery.

8. Range

The range determines the maximum distance that the gmrs radio can send and receive communications. Ideally, the maximum range of FRS radio is about 6 miles, while the maximum communication range of GMRS radio is up to 50 miles. However, when you believe this number, you are naive. Please note that this is an ideal test. This means that the site lines are clear, there is no interference, and there are no obstacles between the radios. In the real world, the actual reachable distance depends on a series of factors such as terrain, weather conditions, obstacles and interference. Generally speaking, the distance between two handheld gmrs radios is about one to two miles (about 1.5-3 kilometers), but when you connect to the gmrs repeater, you will receive unexpected results.

So, if you are in a remote place, at the top of a big mountain, and there are only a few trees between you and the other members of your team, you can run a long distance, but if you are in a residential or industrial area, you Will be lucky to reach 1 to 3 miles. The distance on the open water area will also be less than the ideal range, but greater than the built-up area. Therefore, if you really need to communicate over long distances, choose a radio that can achieve a greater range than you need, and remember that your environment will determine the distance you can communicate effectively.

If you own or have a GMRS repeater near you, congratulations to you, this lucky guy, you can get several times the distance you are now, depending on the power of the repeater you are connected to, the height of the antenna and other factors, welcome to click gmrs The repeater map gets information about GMRS repeaters near you(https://mygmrs.com/map/#/).

9. VOX Support

The gmrs radio with VOX or voice activated transmission function allows you to operate the walkie-talkie hands-free. This is a very useful function in mountaineering,skiing, driving gmrs radio, because after activating the VOX function, this function will transmit your communication as soon as you start talking. This will help you free your hands and ensure that your hands are not affected in any way.

These waterproof gmrs radios can be submerged in the water for 30 minutes without affecting their functions. In waterproof radio, the adjective that we often see waterproof is IP67. "IP" stands for Ingress Protection Rating, the first number is solid-state protection rating, ranging from 0-6, and the second digit is liquid protection rating, ranging from 0-8, indicating protection from vertical droplets to bottom pressure , The higher the number, the stronger the ability, but now most products can only reach a maximum of 7. In essence, IP67 tells us that the described waterproof two-way walkie-talkie can still withstand harsh conditions.

Our current two waterproof gmrs radios are Retevis RB75 and RB23. they are all up to IP67 waterproof level. The connection range of these two waterproof gmrs radios is up to 5 miles.
