To the OP you are in the US check your state and federal laws. They are quite different than Canada. Asking that question on this board other than getting compatibility options will not answer the legal questions.
For those of you in Canada, the US is far more strict about radio communications outside the FRS ranges, including significant fines and jail time. So don't tell someone form the US to grab a VHF or UHF radio and use it unlicensed unless you know the ramifications.
