Good Radio, but NOT for Kids (because they are actually FRS/GMRS radios, vs FRS as listed)

Summary: I bought these for an 8 year old because they were listed as FRS radios - which don't require an FCC license. While the radios appear to be just fine, they have both FRS and GMRS channels - twenty-two in all, and they ARE the MD200R model. This means that children who inadvertently change to the channel to one of the GMRS channels will be breaking the law, which makes them unsuitable for unsupervised use by children.
Summary: I bought these as part of a neighborhood emergency response program, but they aren't suitable for this. They don't allow you to set an Interference Eliminator Code. If you want to use these to communicate with a radio that does use Interference Eliminator Codes, the code on the other radio must be set to 0. That's not what our emergency response program uses, so these radios won't work.
