I'm new to this group and just got a new license, but have been using GMRS since the 80's up North with REACT. When I moved to SC, I let my license from NY expire and then applied for another and never really used it so that one expired too. I am now getting back in to it and I have found a couple of repeaters here near me in central SC, and they aren't really active, but one of them is listed on here as requiring permission for use. I e-mailed the contact person a few days ago and have heard nothing back either way. Should I get on the repeater, give my call sign and just ask, or is there a "protocol" to follow?

FCC rules require permission from the owner of the repeater prior to using it. He doesn't check his email very of, just give it some time.
