Negative.

Air Band Transceivers are AM radios (118 to 137 MHz). MURS and GMRS both operate on FM.

In addition to that MURS operates in the VHF spectrum on 151 & 154 MHz, and GMRS operates in the UHF spectrum on 462 & 467 MHz

It’s worth mentioning that even if it was possible, it may not be legal. For example a marine radio which is VHF would be illegal to operate on land. Similarly it’s illegal to operate MURS or GMRS on a HAM radio because the equipment is not FCC type accepted for that application even though it would be entirely possible to actually do it. The second you PTT, you broke a Federal law. It would however be quite acceptable to program those frequencies for the purpose of monitoring/listening on a HAM radio.

There are various federal restrictions/rules across the board depending on the type of equipment, service, and band.

Thanks! Not planning on any FCC violations, purely asking to satisfy my curiosity on frequencies.

Itís a perfectly good & valid questionÖ I donít hear much about air band radios around here so I felt compelled to answer it. I donít own an air band radio, but I can monitor it on my Yaesu VX-7R HAM radio which can do wideband AM/FM receive.
