Membership & Growth

Membership & Growth

Back in 2007 when we first got started, it was getting crazy with spending money and working long hard hours up on these towers.  In a justification for what we were doing, I made this statement…

“Build It. They Will Come.”

Oh how true this has become…keep on coming, there is plenty of room!

It’s interesting to note, that 52%  of our Licensed GMRS members are also FCC-licensed Amateur Radio Operators.

Again, please consider the value and safety our system provides and continue to help in supporting the organization, by donating.

Thanks again and stay safe!
