Never heard of a model 90000.  Which is not to say it does not exist.  Try asking your question here: http://batboard.batlabs.com/index.php
There is more motorola knowledge concentrated there than there is in Schaumberg.

These are not FRS radios. The removable antenna disqualifies them immediately. Channel 3 is a GMRS and FRS shared frequency. I didn't research your radio model, but I would guess it is GMRS. You should check for FCC part 95 compliance certificate number on the radio to verify it meets regulation. If they are GMRS type accepted, then you'll need a GMRS license to  transmit legally. Your boss can't buy a single license for all employees (unless the business is owned and operated by only family members). A GMRS license extends privileges to the licenssee and his one generation extended family.

Motorola made an MTX9000, but I think it was 900 MHz.  Other than that, might want to double-check the model number.

 Some FRS/GMRS channels are shared. The 7 channels that are shared are allowed up to 5watts. The none shared channels are allowed up to 50 watts. Now the 7 shared channels a license just like the the normal GMRS channels. Business frequencies have 3 shared channels with GMRS  they follow White Dot 462.575 Chan 16 Black Dot 462.625 Chan 18 Orange Dot 462.675 Chan 20

 You will want to look into the rules for these frequencies, Some frequencies are allowed up to 35 watts on business frequencies some are 3 watts and some are 1 watt. You will still need to figure out what needs a license

The first post said the radio was circa 1991.   FRS came about in 1996.  Therefore it is not a FRS.  The radio might have been modified for single FRS channel.  That frequency is not GMRS.   Could the radio and frequency be a business frequency in 1991?  What 462.1625 mhz used for in 1991?

NM8D, have you checked the radio on a frequency counter?
