FRS Radio Test Summary

On Saturday, April 10, 2021, we met at the back lot of Norkenzie Christian Church to check out our FRS radios and do some testing. We had a number of brands represented, including Midland, DeWalt, and Baofeng. After some experimenting, we determined that most of the radios were able to successfully send and receive on the two channels tested, 1 and 3. An important note: we determined that the radios must be set to NOT use CTCSS or DCS tones. While that eliminates privacy of communication, it allows us to monitor all activity on those channels.
