Multi-Use Radio Service (MURS) (from http://wireless.fcc.gov/services/personal/murs/)

In the Memorandum Opinion and Order and Second Report and Order released May 23, 2002, the Commission updated the service rules regarding five Industrial/Business Pool VHF frequencies known in the PLMR community as the VHF “color dot” frequencies. These frequencies were moved from Part 90 to Part 95 and became a new Citizens Band Radio Service (CB) named the Multi-Use Radio Service (MURS). The Commission defines MURS as a private, two-way, short-distance voice or data communications service for personal or business activities of the general public.

                           General Provisions

    An entity is authorized by rule to operate a MURS transmitter if it 
is not a foreign government or a representative of a foreign government 
and if it uses the transmitter in accordance with Sec. 95.1309 and 
otherwise operates in accordance with the rules contained in this 
subpart. No license will be issued.

Sec. 95.1303  Authorized locations.

    (a) MURS operation is authorized:
    (1) Anywhere CB station operation is permitted under Sec. 95.405; 
    (2) Aboard any vessel of the United States, with the permission of 
the captain, while the vessel is travelling either domestically or in 
international waters.
    (b) MURS operation is not authorized aboard aircraft in flight.
    (c) Anyone intending to operate a MURS unit on the islands of Puerto 
Rico, Desecheo, Mona, Vieques, and Culebra in a manner that could pose 
an interference threat to the Arecibo Observatory shall notify the 
Interference Office, Arecibo Observatory, Post Office Box 995, Arecibo, 
Puerto Rico 00613, in writing or electronically, of the location of the 
unit. Operators may wish to consult interference guidelines, which will 
be provided by Cornell University. Operators who choose to transmit 
information electronically should e-mail to: prcz@naic.edu.
    (1) The notification to the Interference Office, Arecibo Observatory 
shall be made 45 days prior to commencing operation of the unit. The 
notification shall state the geographical coordinates of the unit.
    (2) After receipt of such notifications, the Commission will allow 
the Arecibo Observatory a period of 20 days for comments or objections. 
The operator will be required to make reasonable efforts in order to 
resolve or mitigate any potential interference problem with the Arecibo 
Observatory. If the Commission determines that an operator has satisfied 
its responsibility to make reasonable efforts to protect the Observatory 
from interference, the unit may be allowed to operate.

    (b) A MURS station may transmit any emission type, subject to the 
limitations contained in Sec. 90.207 of this chapter.
    (c) MURS frequencies may be used for remote control and telemetering 
functions. Emission types A1D, A2D, F1D, F2D are authorized and stations 
used to control remote objects or devices may be operated on the 
continuous carrier transmit mode, except on frequency 154.600 MHz.

Sec. 95.1309  Channel use policy.

    (a) The channels authorized to MURS systems by this part are 
available on a shared basis only and will not be assigned for the 
exclusive use of any entity.
    (b) Those using MURS transmitters must cooperate in the selection 
and use of channels in order to reduce interference and make the most 
effective use of authorized facilities. Channels must be selected in an 
effort to avoid interference to other MURS transmissions.
