How is the GMRS traffic in your area?

Post by Admin »

I know where I'm at there isn't a lot to speak of. Been trying to catch what sounds like a repeater ident but haven't really been trying very hard. All I hear most days is crickets apart from that.

What's it like in your area? Much traffic at all or?

I’m just south of Tucson. So the traffic is actually pretty good. I usually listen to the nets on the Mt. Lemmon repeater during my rive to work in the evening.

Quite a bit of regular traffic during my commute in the evening.

Typically folks are on the radio during the morning and evening commutes. A modest amount of chatter in the evenings. Not much traffic during the business day, except maybe at lunch. A fair amount of traffic on Saturdays and Sundays. There is also a local radio training net that happens weekly on Sunday evenings that seems to bring in 12-24 check-ins. Folks that can hear the repeater but cannot open it up can check in on one of two alternate repeaters, one is GMRS, the other is amateur 2m. A couple of folks monitor two frequencies so questions can be received and relayed to the official net frequency.

We had a new repeater go up about a month ago. Traffic is slowly picking up. I think when word gets out how well this repeater does traffic will continue to increase.
I'm still waiting patiently for the wisdom that comes with old age...
