Family Radio Service - No License Needed

A GMRS (General Mobile Radio Service) HT (Handheld Transceiver) uses the same 22 channels in the USA as FRS (Family Radio Service). A GMRS HT requires a license to transmitt, but a FRS walkie-talkie does not require a license. However both are limited to 0.5 watts on channels 8-14, but a FRS walkie-talkie is allowed up to 2 watts on all other channels. These channels provide a greater reach, so you can communicate at a greater distant apart.

The User Manual
The Guide to FRS Walkie-Talkies include a standard walkie-talkie User Manual. Use this to learn the operation of a walkie-talkie.
Privacy Codes
The guide also includes a table of privacy codes and the CTCSS audio tones used, so a GMRS HT can be programmed to match a walkie-talkie. Also the walkie-talkie can be set to match a standard GMRS HT. This table allows dealing with any deviations. Some radios designed outside of the USA deviate from the standard.
FRS Tips
The second part of the guide gives tips for using FRS walkie-talkies. Sections include FRS and GMRS Together, Channel Sharing, Power, Antennas, Introduction to Transceivers, and more.
