Report it! That's why there is a enforcement bureau and thats why there is long list of violations.n6orz said:There is a crew controlling traffic for a railroad project using "bubble pack" radios on GMRS 462.55, a block from my house. No ID, clearly illegal. Whadda ya think, guys? Worth reporting, or should we consider GMRS a lost cause?
Bubble packers degrade the GMRS service. It used to be that you could communicate with family members all over the area with repeaters. Now repeater operation is all but impossible due to all the interference.ReceiverBeaver said:No, don't report it. Dontcha have something better to do with yourself and your life than to worry about the working Joe or your neighbor bending some little weenie radio rule?
Even if they have a license, GMRS is for personal, non-commercial use. What they are using these radios for is not permitted on this service.ReceiverBeaver said:Just because someone doesn't SAY their callsign on GMRS doesn't necessarily mean that they don't have one.
462.55 is not an FRS channel.ReceiverBeaver said:And they may well have been on .5 watts on an FRS rig. Speculation is specious.
