Let's me ask you a question: what are you trying to accomplish?
Even if you got this grant from the FCC
- you would have no one to talk to.
Those that use these frequencies do so in a business framework. They are working construction or are county/city/state employees that are networked together. Or some other large, private company that has field workers. You would be interfering.
Doubtful the FCC
would grant your request anyway; simply because you wouldn't qualify.
If what you want to do is get on the air to talk to others and don't want/need to get a Ham license, then a CB
/'Citizens Band' radio is what you want. The radio you have now cannot and will not work on the CB
band - even if it is reprogrammed - it was not engineered for those CB
freq's in mind. Additionally, no license is needed for CB
and you can talk to others locally and over long distances when atmospheric conditions allow. At that point in time, you might consider getting a Ham license and extending your use of more frequencies and other operating privileges.
