You can't. No 6.25 tuning step in that rig.

What were you going to do if you had those frequencies available? If you were going to talk to people with proper PMR446 radios, then the deviation, the frequency and CTCSS would have to be set correctly - and you'd still be working illegally, but if you were going to talk to friends over greater distances, then you could go a bit higher or lower and do it, still, of course just as illegally. If you're willing to break the law, that's up to you - but unless you want to speak to people you don't know ..........

Buy PMR radio George. That band is not for transmitting high power from base antennas. Doing that you will be jamming others you don't even hear in a very long range.
