Membership

Ready to join up? Membership is FREE! The Arkansas GMRS Repeater Group is 100% volunteer and funded with donations from its members and repeater owners. There is no obligation to pay to become a member of the Group! Many of our repeater owners allow usage of their repeaters even without a membership. Membership required repeaters will screen through this process and is indicated on each webpage. Fill out the the web form below and we will get you added and you have full access to all affiliated systems. Also, joining the membership gives you inside tidbits and information as well as access to help with radio programming, building repeaters or other fun GMRS stuff!

We welcome all GMRS Repeater Owners and Licensees in Arkansas!

General Membership

All we ask is that you have an active GMRS license and follow the rules the repeater owners have decided for their independent systems. The Group, at this time, controls no repeater or owner, it is strictly a sharing cooperative. Many Group repeater owners will come up with a basic mode of decorum as shown on our site on their individual repeaters as they’re added. There will be benefits forthcoming to membership such as assistance in installing equipment, radio programming (where available) and technical advice. Sometimes it’s good to have a helping hand and that’s why we’re here!

Repeater Owners

As a repeater owner, you are offering your precious resources to users and we all do appreciate it! The Group isn’t designed to take over your system, make a bunch of rules and cause mayhem like a lot of clubs. As a repeater owner, you will get a page here on this site, complete with any pictures and information you’d like to add. Publishing CTCSS/PL tones is optional and can be given to members in private.

Or if you want to follow the old school Open Repeater Initiative that some Group members were part of in forming back in the early 2000’s, we welcome that too! Some repeaters are open, some require permission. Join today and have access to both!

Either way, please fill out the form below and we will get with you as soon as possible! If you are not a repeater owner, you can disregard the repeater questions. Thanks for becoming a member of the Arkansas GMRS Repeater Group!  As an Open Repeater Initiative supporter, membership IS NOT REQUIRED and is voluntary.
