Question

On the repeater descriptions under the maps tab it often says 'login required'. 

What does that mean? And how do you do it?

Does it refer to the weekend regional and national net?  What about general use any day any time?

 

Anything to do with this site log in?

 

Thx.

MyGMRS requires a username and password to log in to see repeater information. To obtain a username and password you must submit your callsign and fill out the registration page. Your callsign will be confirmed through the FCC database (this may take a few days if you just received your callsign) and your account will become active.

 

This process was done to reduce the number of unlicensed operators as well as malicious operations upon repeaters that were listed. Note that your MyGMRS account is not the same as the MyGMRS forums (To my knowledge) so you will need to register on both sides to use both the forums and the main site.

OK thx. I am (I was) with you on everything you said.

 

In fact I did web site login, got repeater permission, etc.

 

It appeared from the maps page  that I then had to login somwhere before I  turned on my radio and activated the repeater channel. Guess I read too much into it.

 

Thx again.

By any chance do you know the name of the repeater so I may see first hand, perhaps I am misunderstanding what you meant by username and password?

The repeater is Mercer County. Go to the MAP tab/page and click on the specific  repeater.  It says LOGIN REQUIRED.

 

Is that located in Lawrenceville, NJ? It's the only "Mercer County" repeater in the entire database. If so, I have no problem seeing the frequency and CTCSS tone codes.

 

But I did have to login mygmrs.com to allow me to see that data.
