National GMRS Net – Session 13

The national GMRS net saw a new record total of 112 check-ins this evening. Net control for the evening was our own Darren, WRCU527. Thanks for running it!

The topic of the evening was again suggested by Dustin, WRFQ335: What kind of handhelds do you recommend for GMRS? Responses are logged below.

We are looking for net control operators to run the net on May 3rd and 10th – if you are interested let us know! Any licensed GMRS operator is allowed to run it – expertise is not required! We’ll set you up with all the tools and give you a run-down of how it all works and what to look out for. If none come forward, session 14 of the net will reconvene on May 17th.

The recording from the session is available on our YouTube channel:
