New to GMRS.  Long long long ago CB'er back before it became the wild west.   Well, maybe not as wild a west as is currently.   Looking forward to the GMRS experience.   Retired but you know how it is...the more you do, the more you do.   GMRS can help fill in the empty spots.

WRJT555, Greetings from Lincoln, Massachusetts!

 

I just received my GMRS license, and this is my gateway to Technician Amateur (currently studying and planning for exam). I am looking to learn, so I'm excited to be part of this group. I plan to use GMRS mostly for family, recreation and such, and want to learn more about how I can use repeaters for this purpose. 

 

Brian

Hello ya'll,

My name's Jerry and I'm a total newcomer to the world of radio. I just recently got my GMRS license (WRJU443) and am living in Sherman, Texas. I'm looking forward to learning as much as possible and meeting others to yammer with on the radio.

Hi all.  I'm new here.  Posted the other day in some of the forums, but figured I'd make it official here.  I thought HTs would be good for keeping in touch with family that live near me.  One household is 5000 feet away in the next neighborhood and the other is 2 miles the opposite direction (both straight-line distances).  Looks like we're all going to have to upgrade to mobile/base stations with an elevated antenna. 

 

I receive on a repeater, but no idea if I could transmit through it (definitely not on the HTs unless there's an unmarked one very close).  The maps/DB here don't show any in a decent range.

 

I also thought I'd stop at GMRS, but will be taking the amateur tech license test in January.  I think I caught "the bug."  

 

I keep the money tree watered and fertilized, but no fruit yet. :D

Welcome! and congrats... 

 

So, 2 miles, is this in suburban environment? flat terrain? 

 

Love the money tree analogy... :) but you are going to need more than water and fertilizer if you caught "the bug"... it starts with the house a couple of miles down the road, and by the time you realize it you're in a few or so grand...

Rural with lots of trees, some rolling hills which may or may not be higher than our properties and some open farm fields between us. 

 

The other home that is 5000 feet away is on the other side of a hill that is about 1700 feet from my house and is a bit higher than ground level of my lot, then more trees and a field or 2.
