In the US, those frequencies shown as PMR are actually 
Amateur radio frequencie. Those and frequencies listed as 
HAM frequencies require an Amateur radio license to use 

GMRS Repeaters also require that you have a GMRS liscense 
plus permission of the repeater owner to use.

Marine frequencies require license to use.

Many of those limitations are not clearly spelled out on 
that web page. Be AWARE of the limitations, penalties for 
unliscensed use can be severe.
