Morse Code?



Hi everyone, 

I would like to start off by saying, I am very new to the whole GRMS and repeater thing.  I recently obtained my license and a GMRS programmed radio.  While monitoring a local repeater, as well as others, I occasionally hear Morse code beeps.  Can someone tell me what those are?

If this is a stupid question, I apologize.  Again, this is a whole new world to me and I am still learning.

As @kidphc noted, it is the ID of the repeater (more accurately, the GMRS callsign of the owner/operator of the repeater). The FCC does not require that a repeater ID. But, if the repeater does ID, it may do so using morse code or voice. There is no limitation on the allowable speed of the morse code ID, and some repeaters ID at a rate that would challenge the best morse operators out there. This is defined in 47 CFR § 95.1751 - GMRS station identification. You can also search the forum topics onMyGMRS for several lengthly discussions on the subject.
