i'm in north nj near Hopatcong, Standhope, Parsippany, Cedar Knolls, Randolph, Morris Plains.   I have been scanning GMRS for about a year and I hear no one talking.  But I do hear private repeaters sending out CW now and then. I'm guessing there must be some private repeaters around.  I'm wondering if anyone in that area is interested in talking on their repeater or testing range of their repeater, or coordinating with me for any emergency communications.  If i had a private repeater (not listed on this site) I would want to get a local group together... If i only had a site secured.  I do have a few leads on sites, but nothing is panning out.  I find myself with my GMRS radio, and no one to talk with, and I'm not looking to socialize, but to have some idea of who's out there so we can reach out to someone if we needed to.  How active are you guys on GMRS? It seems to be basically dead where I live.... or is it?
