As long as your MT-1000 is capable of broadcasting over your company's radio frequency, you have every legitimate reason to have your radio re-modified to broadcast. Just make sure you only key up when you're on your employer's channel.
This is not correct. Under FCC regulations, the license covers radios only operated under the control of the licensee. You must have formal permission from your employer to operate a personal radio under their license.
If your RR operates under NORAC rules, Rule 700 says " The use of radios other than those furnished by the company for railroad operations is prohibited".
Use of an unauthorized radio could subject your employer to FCC and FRA fines and cost you your job.
Also, The MT1000 does not comply with FCC power limitations for use on any MURS channel and does not comply with bandwidth requirements to operate on the narrow band 151 MHz MURS channels.
