North Georgia GMRS Association
Welcome to our Website
Dear Friends, Fellow Members & Perspective New Members,
Again, Welcome and thank you for taking the time to stop by.
We look forward to making your experience painless, informative, and rewarding as you consider looking into our group and perhaps becoming a member.
Spring of 2018 brings our North Georgia GMRS group to its 11th year of operation. We have grown in record numbers and still plan to grow in membership as the New Year rolls in.
Our growth in 2017 was one of the best years ever. As we enter into 2018 our paid membership listing is as follows: as of (11-8-2017)
Licensed Members: 175
Amateur Operators: 87
Unit Numbers Assigned: 498
Feel free to explore our website and discover the fun and versatility in taking advantage of our Area Wide Repeater System, throughout the State of Georgia.
Our mission is to remain a premier GMRS organization and provide expanded communication opportunities, as well as learning more about radio communications in general.
In addition, we strive to assist those members who seek to learn more about the Amateur Radio world. Even though Amateur Radio and GMRS communications are very different, they are similar in likeness, because it involves one common denominator. That being the member who seeks to learn.
We will continue the nightly net, Monday thru Friday at 8:00pm, on our network. Feel free to join in the fun and contribute to the conversation.
Annual Membership Dues will be required to be paid by any member who chooses to remain a member of the North Georgia GMRS Group., or any New Applicant who seeks membership into the group.
This year we are offering several different levels of membership into the North Georgia GMRS organization.
You will find the Membership Level and cost that will best serve your needs as a North Georgia GMRS Member, under the Membership tab, here on this web page.
