Hello everyone. Been lurking here for a couple of weeks before registering. I recently received my GMRS license. Was surprised to have it issued within a day of submitting everything online. I've been a licensed ham since 2001 as well. I have a family that doesn't mind using a radio but asking they are not interested in getting a ham license. Figured we could use GMRS and have better results than the cheap FRS radios we have used in the past. Plus it gives me another radio to play with. 

I'm now off to post a question in the technical section. Thanks for having me.

I am new as well. I got my license for the same reason, it is easier to onboard my family. Personally, I enjoy scanning and listening. However, my family prefers to keep it on our shared DCS channel for chatting with each other.

Welcome. I have not posted on the forums in some time myself.
