September Meeting Cancelled but GMRS Operational

There will be no September meeting.

Thanks to the generous financial support of the people, the GMRS repeater is operational. It covers from Benton City to Selah. By mid-month, our correspondence chair hopes to have it linked with the UVA repeater in Selah.  Frequency info: 462.575MHz, PL 69.3, Offset: +5.00MHz. GMRS Ch. 16. Repeater is referred to as “Dry Grass.”

A GMRS license can be obtained from the FCC for $35 and lasts for 10 years before it needs to be renewed. The license covers the entire immediate family which is defined as licensee, spouse of licensee, children, grandchildren, stepchildren, parents, grandparents, stepparents, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and in-laws of the licensee. The following link has steps for obtaining a GMRS license. https://quality2wayradios.com/store/gmrs-fcc-license
