National GMRS Net – Session 6

Session 6 of the National GMRS Net saw yet another record of check-ins, totaling 56 attendees. Use of a roll-call relieved a lot of the pileup issues we’ve had in the past, and we’ll be using one going forward. The recording is available here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uKaDCQXrCCE

The Texas GMRS Network joined us for the first time on this session, with a total of 10 check-ins from their system; nice!

Net control for the evening was ran by David, WQVS960.

The evening’s topic was: Mobile set-ups, what are you using? Responses are logged below
