I recently got my GMRS license and I am so confused with research. How do I know what repeaters I am able to operate on with this license. I did an import from repeaterbook on CHIRP for nearby repeaters and about 10 results returned within 20 miles but am I allowed to operate on them?
I did a search on repeaterbooks website for GMRS and found hardly any repeaters so I am a bit confused in what I should look for and be aware of. Here is a repeater in my area that I am interested in. 146.925000 Baldwin Hills. Am I able to operate on this repeater?
Also, pardon my ignorance but the FCC assigned me a call sign. What is this used for? I dont see much information online on what a call sign is and what its used for.
