More Canadian Business Users Turning to GMRS
As I go about my day, I've been finding more and more Canadian businesses using GMRS radios for day-to-day wireless communications. Of course the construction industry, especially road work crews, have embraced GMRS. But even when I have gone into some grocery stores, small retail outlets, and even a library, employees are carrying around GMRS radios for customer service, staff management, stocking, cleaning, and many other activities. Since GMRS radios require no license or other fees to use, they are inexpensive alternatives to business-band radios. And in this economy, when short-range radio communications are required, the business radios are being dumped, and GMRS radios are being used. I pose a challenge to you. In your daily business activities, are there times when you could use cheap two-way radio communications? So why are you still using business band equipment?
