-Yes. This is an amateur radio web site and all regular users must have call sign. +Yes. This is an amateur radio web site and all regular users must have an FCC issued Part 97 call sign. 
  
 This is an open community. We use our call signs whenever we transmit on the air. Anyone can look us up and see who we are. Often, the radio operators who seek anonymity are jammers and trouble-makers,​ who are not welcome here. This is an open community. We use our call signs whenever we transmit on the air.

-There are those that are very interested in amateur radiobut do not yet have a call sign. You are absolutely welcome here. What you are primarily missing are features that really only work if you are licensed and have a radio to use.+There are those that are very interested in amateur radio but do not yet have a call sign.

 What we found is that GMRS owners often times do not have the same goals as amateur radio repeater owners. Many GMRS owners create small radio networks to operate farms or for family use and do not want outsiders on their systems. They also want to lock down all listings of their repeaters so only they can modify them.  What we found is that GMRS owners often times do not have the same goals as amateur radio repeater owners.

-This does not follow the Repeaterbook.com model. Furthermore,​ there seems to be other resources available that offer this service. Though not as robust and built out, their services seem to be adequate for that community.

Furthermore,​ there seems to be other resources available that offer this service. Though not as robust and built out, their services seem to be adequate for that community. ​There are no GMRS repeaters listed on Repeaterbook.com and users that attempt to register with GMRS call signs will have their account revoked. I would encourage those looking for GMRS data to use [[https://​mygmrs.com/​browse|MyGMRS]].
