Hi Wes -

Not sure if this has been covered before, but can we operate on GMRS using 
our HAM calls?  I'd think so, but I wasn't sure.. I still hold WPTY784 for 
GMRS, but I'd definitely not renew if I didn't have to, I got it before I 
became a HAM.

I do realize a lot of people operate on GMRS without licenses. :)
