Are there any gmrs groups in Wernersville PA? Looking to learn about this since Jeep has required them for Jamborees.

I'm in the same boat with JJAMUSA but live in Summerville, SC.

 

Purchased a Midland MTX 400 a month before the Gateway to the Cumberlands run this year.  

Read and experimented with it and a 6DB gain magnetic mounted antenna.  Fairly knowledgeable now with my rig placed in a 2015 Wrangler and used it (even tho it wasn't required) while on the trails just for testing with friends that carried the GTX 1000 hand helds.

 

What manufacturer and model radio are you running?

 

At home I have a repeater I talk to/on for fun about 34 miles up the road (when I can connect).

As you get more knowlegable try reaching a repeater.

I have the Midland MXT400 with the ghost antenna. I have the antenna mounted on the awning bar. I pick up people here and there, some are local businesses but don't know anything about the repeaters or repeater channels. As of now I still prefer the cb while on road. I get a decent range with it and there is much more chatter.
