Gentlemen - I googled info on GMRS/FRS licensing (your episode 6) and fortunately selected your forum. I am pleased to say that your show is very informative and easy to digest in a non-radio geek kind of way. I appreciate how you gentlemen stay on point with the topic. The reviews that you give on the show seem to be honest and unbiased. I was wondering if you had an episode that addressed the question of if there were an EMP anomaly would repeater stations/antennas be affected?
