I live in Central Oregon south and would be interested in joining in on the myGMRS network but I don't see any repeater's in this area. Do I have options via cell or computer link? I'm not a techie so ideas welcome. 

 

Thanks much all,

Rob

Looks like Sweet Home, OR and Klamath Falls have repeaters.  If you select Outdated Repeaters on the Map they'll pop.  Whether they're in your area.. ?

As to your linking question, I can't answer that with any expertise.

I lived in central Oregon (Redmond) so I'm guessing you are talking about LaPine or something.

I don't see any GMRS repeaters that you would have a shot at from there.

 

I'm not sure about the network you mean but there is a thing called GMRS network that works on the internet.

Here is a video about it.

 

Essentially the radio just links you to your PC and the internet does the rest.

You are talking to people all over the US and maybe further.

I think the hardware is not too expensive.

 

They have a website here.   http://gmrs.network/

 

I'm sure Bend has a ham radio club if you are interested in that.

They usually have classes to get your license.... when covid is not in the way.

Vince did a great job of sending you to the correct place... the hard part for me was under Radio Serive pick ZA which is GMRS license.  If you want a few weeks the price will go to $35 for 10 years.  Me and many others are in the $70 Club as I got my license in Nov 2020.  Still $7 a year at current price and good deal at that.

The best way to see if you have a repeater in your area is to just scan the Repeater Channels 15 to 22.

Here's an easy guide.  Should take you no more than 10 minutes.
