GMRS on the Water!

This summer has seen me writing more and listing to my scanner which scans both the marine channels and GMRS channels here in Barrie, Ontario. And you know what I have noticed? More and more people are adding GMRS radios to their boating activities. Sure, the marine VHF channels are still used for chit-chat, but many boaters are finding that inexpensive UHF GMRS hand-helds can do the same thing for shorter range communications. Since GMRS radios don't need a license, nor are there any air costs at all, even those boaters who are not required to have VHF radios are using GMRS radios. Just one of the many uses of GMRS that I have come across in my daily activities. Why not add GMRS radios to yours?
