I’m new to the forum and am curious to know if there are any other users in the greater Charlotte, NC metro area. I live about 35 miles southeast of downtown Charlotte, near the NC/SC line and US–601. I’ve had my GMRS license for a bit, but have yet to actually talk to anyone. I have a Wouxun UV-3D handheld and 2 Motorola CDM–1550 UHF mobiles that came without power cables or microphones (what did I really expect for that price on eBay, LOL). I’m just wondering if there is any local activity. I’ve been a licensed ham for 21 years and I know there is quite a bit of local VHF usage there. Thanks in advance and have a great day!

Looks like a few repeaters in the area, get permission and start monitoring, announce you are on air. Power cables and Mics for 1550's are easy to find...good radios, use them!

When i was in area in the spring at the NASCAR races I heard chatter on a few GMRS channels. For the October race only had my HT so didn't hear much. I have a .650 repeater in my Motor home when i am on track in Spring.

There’s a repeater off rocky road just off 485 lots of trafic on it some times. it reaches all the way up here in hickory I really like the Motorola radios I have 3 1250’s and a 1550 just got a cm300 yesterday programming them has been a fun learning curve but I’ve got it down pat now.
