None of the beofeng radios are legal to use on the frs or grms . They can only be used by a licensed ham operator. The only exception is the part 90 Radios that can be used on business band with an FCC license. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.

I have like three sets of those FRS radios, and they work little better than the old kid's Walkie talkies.

If you have long enough line of sight (e.g. a high hilltop) and nothing in between you and the other station, you can get pretty far with those radios, but those conditions rarely exist in practical situations, except in the case of repeaters, which of course aren’t allowed with FRS in either Canada or the US.

This is true they can not have a detachable antena. I have not found a single good FRS radio! They have much less range then the makers says it will reach. Min range of maybe 100 yards line of site with nothing between you and the other person. 

Get a Ham lic and enjoy real radio.

One thing I haven't seen mentioned with regards to legality, no FRS radio can have a detachable antenna, so that rules out your model all by itself.
