Why won't "Broadcastify" allow GMRS repeaters to be monitored.


Recommended Posts

Broadcastify is a great site for Scanner enthusiasts.  However they don't allow GMRS repeaters to be monitoried.  They allow amatuer radio repeaters and some of these repeater are not professional at all, such as:


K6MWT 147.4350 MHz Los Angeles Renegade Repeater

The "435" repeater is famous for lively discussion on controversial subjects. Located in Southern California on Santiago Peak (5,600 feet), the repeater covers Orange County, Los Angeles, San Diego and the Inland Empire.


Most of the GMRS repeaters are used for emergencies and are very professional.


Zello is being used as a means to talk and listen on a GMRS repeater.


Just curious or is it even a concern?

I thought it may be because public safety, etc is public information, HAM is an open "hobby", but GMRS and likewise a "business" repeater or base, are more of a private deal. Not private in a "protected" sense or under some guise of privacy from listeners, but the type of communication is really not in the spirit of "action" most scanner peeps are after.
