I think any grandfathered business, would have indicated that by now. and this repeater just showed up in the past few months.

It seems many of their Employs refuse to use the radios now. so that has reduced illegal traffic. but it seems a few are defiant. Another licensed user is setting up a recorder that will only record transmissions of the group involved.  It seems it is a management group with several buildings under their service. My truck is in the shop, but should be out WED. I will then set the scanner to listen on the input freq. and hone in on their location, I will also take pictures to add to the report I make with the FCC

No one really cares. They probably won't even do anything and the FCC doesn't even care anymore, hence the license drop proposal and the fall of many great REACT groups and their repeaters in my area forcing me to get a HAM license now

The NPRM was 4 years ago and NO action has been taken,after this length of time you would think some kind of action would be taken.With the influx of comments wanting to maintain GMRS the way it is show the FCC we do care.The  FCC has responded to complaints when people take time to sit down and gather the needed information and send it to the FCC...William

      I had a company using our GMRS repeater receive frequency very near by.  I receive in carrier squelch so I hear them.  I politely announce that they are on a licensed frequency and ask for their call signs.  They seemed to have moved so it cleared up right away.

Yea, Jerry your interference sounded like simplex. This managment group actually has a repeater set up on our pair. and they seem defiant, wtich is not good "for them" I did some signal finding on the beach today and I heard on of the employees mentioned "since the radio got caught" and said he would come to the others office as opposed to talk on the radio. sounds like they may be making some changes, we will see. Regardless I am still collecting information for my report.   73's....

     I think it was just a couple guys on bubble pack radio channel 15 which is usually GMRS 1.  They got off right away.
