For those that may not know. FRS radios are those small
walkie-talkies that are all the rage. A pair sells for under $50.
(maybe not a GOOD pair, but a pair nonetheless)

After a lot of work and dotting all the "i"s and crossing all the
ABA recommendations for use of FRS radios by birders is ready for
time. Please feel free to redistribute this message to your local
and to publish your local channel/subcode widely if you do not adopt
ABA FRS Committee Recommendations Brief Summary:
In May the ABA formed a 10 person committee to come up with a set
of recommendations for FRS radio usage for birding.
The following are the primary recommendations:
o States/Provinces should adopt and publicize a standard
FRS channel/subcode for birding communications.
- The ABA recommends the adoption of channel 11 & subcode 22
(11/22) to try to achieve a continent-wide standard.
o Radio communications should be considerate of other birders,
non-birders, and the birds.

email and can also be viewed at:
