Do I need an FCC License - The V3MR does not require an FCC license. FCC licenses are required for many business radio frequencies. The biggest advantage to licensing your frequencies is exclusivity. Using common or default frequencies often means dealing with interference from others nearby who are using the same frequencies.  We can help with the FCC application process.
