I want to know if the Distance DPS radio by motorolla will communicate with a regular 1/2 watt FRS radio?  I understand that the FRS and GMRS share channels 1-7, but the maximum power allowed by the FCC is 1/2 watt on FRS.  GMRS is allowed up to 25 watts.  The problem is that I would like to talk to hunters that have the small 1/2 watt FRS radios with a Distance DPS radio, is this possible? Legal?   Any input is appriciated

om87,

Yes, you can use the DPS radios to talk to the 1/2 watt FRS radios. The lowered powered FRS radios just won't have the same reach as your GMRS radios.
