National GMRS Net: June 14, 2020

The National GMRS Net saw a total of 40 round-table participants and a cumulative total of 108 check-ins this evening for all nets system-wide. Net control for the evening was Darren, WRCU527 with the Tucson GMRS Association.

The topic of the evening: Are you doing anything with GMRS or ham radio for field day? Listen in to the recording for feedback; note that silences between transmissions have been removed so it is not a time-accurate recording, but is more efficient to listen to.
