Hi Greg,

You might look into the Baofeng GMRS-V1 radio which claims FCC part 95 approval and is limited to the FCC Max of 2W output power.

Everyone who operates a radio will need a GMRS license from the FCC. (Only need to pay a fee to obtain one). A single GMRS license also licenses your immediate family iirc.

Thanks Tony,
        Not having the cable attached was the key.  Didn't know that.
Thanks.  Didn't find that in the instructions.
        Didn't know that was not legal.  Have to use them differently than I
had envisioned.   Puzzling that the FCC allowed them to be made that way.

Legalities aside (those emails will come through soon enough) have you
determined if you actually have the right ToneSql selected?
Number 5 on the talkabout radio probably does not correspond to the 5th tone
in the drop down box. Google is your friend here.

Also, FRS is narrow band FM if I recall correctly.
