As long as you are on the frs/gmrs freqs, and your radio is not throwing out spurious signals, then you can operate your radio wherever you want on 4W. Nobody is going to notice or care. 'radio stations and cop shops' are going to be throwing out many many times more power than your HT on completely different bands, your tinly amount of power is not going to bother them in the least.

In the decade or so we've been discussing radio power on the boards, not one person has ever been arrested for using a high power radio.
In fact, I've been pulled over for a random check stop on the way to coldfront 2, had my GP68 in plain sight (with the long battery and whip antenna so it's REALLY obviously a high power radio), was questioned about it, and the officer's only concern was whether or not it could listen in on police frequencies.

Which is totally legal.

This one, a. will only work when everybody has non blister pack radios.
and b. Only work at large games like NF2 because it might be rather costly.

Grab 3 or 4 channels that are inside the usual ~400-470 MHz range of the radios we all have.

1 or 2 for game control, 1 for each teams command ch.

This ensures that the most important channels are NEVER interrupted.

Its a lil more complicated then "renting" a channel but i think (tho read up on it to confirm) youll have to get a license then apply for a callsign and get s frequency asigned (or pay for one) once you have that im prety sure you can allow people to use your freq. Sort of like when i had two way radios in my trucks for my company. Thing is we had to pay fees for the license and had to have a base station set up at the office. Then the radios get programed to comunjcate with the base station on the assigned freq. It wasnt all that expensive (think it was 25 bucks a month for three trucks and the base station) we used a company called mobile buisness communications. Located in toronto. Prety sure they wer UHF radios. They had 2 channels pre programed in case of issues on one channel you could swap over.
Thing is everyone would have to be able to tune their radios to the correct freq and all the blister pack ones would be SOL. If you have a large group of guys who all use uhf/vhf radios and play together all the time it may be worth while but otherwise i doubt it.

Info for private licens.
Also you could find out about buisness on links on that page.
Seems like maybe a good idea for large teams or for fields thag regularly have large games (like picton) otherwise i think its not worth while as 30% or more of guys still use blister pack radios and alot of folks have no intention of going uhf/vhf. Then if you have vhf channels and alot of guys only have uhf radios then its useless again.
