Tucson GMRS Association

We are a small group of GMRS enthusiasts looking to promote its use in the Tucson Metro area. Licensed or not; we're happy to have you!

Tucson Area GMRS Repeaters & Access Information

There are a number of GMRS repeaters around the Tucson Metro area that you might find useful. Find the complete list and how to access them here

Now with More Chile!

The TGA repeater system is now linked to the New Mexico GMRS group, meaning you can now talk to our neighbors to the east or stay in touch with acquaintances traveling the area! GMRSNM maintains an extensive repeater network covering much of northern New Mexico.

Radio-over-IP Access

No radio? No problem! The TGA repeater system is accessible from the internet, meaning you can join the conversation from your desktop, laptop, tablet or phone! A GMRS license is still required.

Need a GMRS License?

GMRS licenses have a $70 fee through the FCC and are valid for 10 years. The license covers an individual and their entire family (yes, even the in-laws!). Applying is easy, and there is no exam required!

The Basics

General Mobile Radio Service

The GMRS is a licensed radio service that lets users of handheld, vehicle mounted and base radio devices communicate with one another.

As the service allows access to sophisticated equipment, communications over distances of a few to thousands of miles are possible.


Licensees may run up to 50 Watts of power on equipment certified for the service, including consumer radios as well as professional equipment.

Family Licensed

A single GMRS license covers you and your entire family, including the in-laws. Only one person needs to apply with the FCC, there is no exam!
