We all remember the devastating scenes that took place on September 11, 2001.

 

Construction projects at ground zero are coming along well, as I understand it.

 

May I ask if anyone here knows if there were any GMRS systems involved in that destruction?

 

 

Thank you and as we approach the 12th anniversary of that sad day, please keep the victims and first responder families in your prayers... the healing goes slowly.........................

I could not tell you for sure.  Having been there I can tell you that 90% of the cell phone service was down as well as a good portion of the civil service radio networks (Police, Fire, etc.).   But, that is what got me into the GMRS, as a backup.

Thanks, Billy - I'm not from the area and can't seem to find if there were any GMRS systems on the Twin Tower roofs.  There was a little info about the equipment on top of building # 7, but it didn't list anything specifically GMRS.

to the best of my knowledge there were no GMRS repeaters there but there was a HAM IIRC in the 900Mc or 1.2Gc range. the antenna's weren't on the up on the farm they were inside facing out the windows.

I had been up there many time but never personally saw it, I was told about it by another tech that worked the site.
