Guest BobG Posted June 20, 2020 Report Share Posted June 20, 2020 FYI, I just got my GMRS license yesterday. Call sign WRHU703. But even though its after 12EST the next day, its saying that the call sign is not known. I will try again tomorrow. I have been looking for a source of etiquette for GMRS use. So far I find a lot of the same information explaining about what GMRS, FRS, HAM, etc.. is but not finding the practical guides to how to use it well in a shared way. So far I gather that there must be two ways to use it. One is to tune into a repeater and monitor and occasionally engage in conversations with strangers. The other is for point to point communications between a group of people involved in an outdoor activity. I am taking my family out to Moab next month and we will be riding dirt bikes in the desert. Each time we ride, I am thinking that we will monitor channels (that are not listed on this website as repeaters) to find one not being used and then just start using it for our personal communications. Does that sound right? Should I try to find a club in the area to check in with? --BobG Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
