Looking to see if anyone knows of a repeater in the suburban Philadelphia area, or would be interested in helping me put one up. GMRS is pretty quiet around here, although I do know of quite a few people with licenses in the area.

Hello,

Have you checked the mygmrs.com database? The database shows three repeaters in the Philly area. One in Aston, PA, one in Norristown, PA and one in Wynnewood, PA. Hope this helps out.

Also on a side not, a quick check of the FCC database shows 128 licensed GMRS users with a Philadelphia address.

Checking myGMRS.com was the first thing I did. I would not have posted here without checking it.

The Aston repeater has been inactive, or at least for the 3 weeks I've been listening to the freq.
The Norristown repeater is for a town watch that I'm not a part of.
The Wynnewood repeater is for a radio network that I'm also not a part of.

And I know there are a lot of GMRS licenses out there, which is why I posted here.

Thanks.

Try contacting the owners of all three of them. I run the Central Jersey Radio Network that the Wynnewood site is part of, and you don't need to be a member to use it. If you request permission through our website at Central Jersey Radio Group, you'll automatically be granted permission for all of the repeaters we manage. All the repeaters are free to use, although each owner may have their own rules like hour restrictions (no calls after 11pm, for example).

I've talked to the owner of the Norristown repeater, and he doesn't mind occasional users on the system, but contact him first before jumping on. I never used this system or the Aston system yet.

The owner of the Wynnewood repeater is Anthony WQFF822, and another frequent user is Mark. Just put your callsign out over the air and ask for one of them. Whenever I visit Cherry Hill, NJ I talk on the Wynnewood repeater as much as possible.
