Hey everyone,

 

Last night I added my repeater to the listing on MyGMRS. I did it mostly for frequency coordination as realistically the repeater doesn't cover very far [less than 5 miles.] I do have it set as an open system and have no problem if other licensed users join in.

For giggles I did a look-up on MyGMRS, I added in the state (New Jersey) and frequency (.XXX) and was surprised to see the repeater does not show up. I figured that perhaps it must be approved by admins, but for giggles I played around with the settings, removing the frequency and looking up the input tone (DCSXXX) and my repeater listing shows up. I check that I put in the proper frequency, and sure enough I did set it to the XXX frequency. So I leave the input code in the search and add in the frequency again, and the search comes back with nothing.

I don't know if this is a bug/glitch with the site or something I did. It's kinda odd that other XXX repeaters do come back in the search but mine doesn't, but mine will come up if I use the input code without the frequency. I also wonder if other listings have the same problem.

Please use the "CONTACT" button at the main website to check with Rich D. about your observations.  The FORUM staff has no administrative access at the main site, so you will have to check in with Rich about this.

 

Thanks...

Hey Gary, I'm sorry I should have been a little more clear, I am not sure if I made a mistake somewhere, or if others are seeing the same problem. Anotherwords, I wanted to know if this is a problem before I send it over. I know the mods here have no access to site repairs :)

On a related note - does anyone actually know Rich? I've been attempting to contact him for over a month.

I can confirm your report. NJ + Input tone XXX  DPL returns only your repeater.
NJ + Freq 462.XXX returns nothing at all!

Strange...


I don't know if this is a bug/glitch with the site or something I did. It's kinda odd that other 6250 repeaters do come back in the search but mine doesn't, but mine will come up if I use the input code without the frequency. I also wonder if other listings have the same problem.
