I am looking for information on the use of GMRS radios in Canada if properly licensed in the US.

Bobtn,

Canada does not have GMRS. Those frequencies are licensed in Canada for business use. You may not use your US GMRS radios and license in Canada.
There are also two GMRS frequency pairs that you may not use in the US near Canada (north of Line A, which is about 75 miles south of the Canadian
border).

What happens with all of the GMRS radios being sold now in Canada? Do the GMRS channels not function at all or do they simply act as FRS channels. It seems all of the new radios (even in Canada) advertise GMRS channels with the extended range. I've been having this discussion with several people at work now, and nobody seems to know exactly how to answer the questions. Anyone with some knowledge on this topic, please explain. Thanks in advance.
