I am in the area of Corvallis, Oregon, has anyone had any luck accessing any GMRS repeaters on their handhelds, if so, did you make any upgrades to your handheld, such as a new antenna?

Thank You,

I did the antenna upgrade to my Wouxon KG-805..... A Nagoya antenna. Works alot better than antenna included in the purchase of the radio. Reaching people 4-5 miles out while in my easy chair. They used to say, "As much wire in the air, as high as possible." I have adapters for the SMA to a SO-238 so I can connect it to the Comet CA-712EFC base antenna.

Accessing Repeaters in San Diego County?  I can not seem to connect to any at all?  Crestline - 575 is supposed to be reachable from my area? I just do not understand how I need to program my Radio. Midland MXT 275 is what I am working with.  Any thoughts would be appreciated.
