NEW GOVERNMENT POLICY (tower fees related)


Recommended Posts

Just wanted to let you all know...

If you have a contract for your GMRS repeater with uncle sam, you may want to check on it.


Until this month, GMRS was billed as a "PRIVATE RADIO" rate.
For a rural area, this meant instead of a 120 dollar yearly rent like the HAM guys paid, GMRS repeater owner had to pay 5 times that amount.

Not any longer.

If your GMRS is privately registered and not used for business, it will now be billed as "OTHER" which will now make the rates equal. (Like it should have been years ago.)
(You will have to speak up about this to get the lower rate...but once they check with the property manager, it will be adjusted.)
