PRSG's former national newsletter, the PRE (or Personal Radio Exchange), had long been our primary printed communications link with GMRS licensees and our other subscribers. In the past, it had been the vehicle through which we had announced or distributed nearly all of our other publications and services.
The PRE reported on the latest news and events pertaining to GMRS (General Mobile Radio Service), to the FRS (Family Radio Service), to the MURS (Multi Use Radio Service), and to other functioning or proposed personal radio services.
Our last printed newsletter edition was dated August/September 1998. We also had two subsequent electronic-only versions (sent by E-mail, for those subscribers for whom we had E-mail addresses) dated April and May, 2001.
For a description of the contents of our newsletters, click here to review our extensive online annotated bibliography. The bibliography includes descriptions of all of our newsletters (going back to the very first issue in August 1982) in catalog category "H."
We plan to consider resuming our national newsletter service soon, but only in an electronic format. Persons who were previously subscribers to the printed version, and whose subscriptions had not yet expired with the August/September 1998 edition, will be credited for the missed issues.
This change to an all-electronic format would allow us to make announcements and deliver other information much more rapidly. We do hope to make one more mailing of printed material to our subscribers for whom we do not have current E-mail addresses. It would announce the recent FCC proposal to make substantial changes to the GMRS rules, and would list the URLs of important Web sites for GMRS users.
If you are a PRE subscriber but have not receive any E-mail communications from us, click here to send us a message with the E-mail address that you want us to use for you. (We will not share it with others.)
