Hello,

I am new in GMRS world. Yesterday I started looking for GMRS repeaters near me (Mount Prospect, IL) and unfortunately in myGMRS database I didn't find. I started searching on FRS and GMRS frequencies and every hour I can hear repeater signal on GMRS canal #21 (462.700, 467.700). The repeater transmits its name (something like DDSH... - I am not sure because of the quality of the voice is not the best) and current time.

 

I didn't find any repeater in Illinois that has that name or operate on the frequency. Could you help me out what I can do to find more information of the repeater to be able to start using it?

 

Thank you in advance for your help and time,

Have a wonderful day,

WRDF476

Possibly you are hearing the Grundy 700 repeater as it has approximately 80 mile radius: https://mygmrs.com/view?id=529

It is located at 500' on the WBEZ tower using a 16-bay folded dipole (Andrew DB420), Hardline 1-5/8 (Andrew) and a Motorola Quantar HighPower, 50w out the 6-Cavity (RFS CP450-422).

It's also being operated illegally....it says they run digital modulation over it.

If they have run P25, I've never heard it. The other repeater owners in the NWI GMRS network would be marching towards the owner of Grundy with torches and pitchforks! :o
