Looking for something new to do in amateur radio? Maybe it’s time to check out digital mobile radio (DMR). There’s been growing interest in DMR around our club for the past year and we now have our own talkgroup (214) on the TGIF network. We’re starting a weekly roundtable net on Sunday nights at 8:00 pm local time. We’ll kick things off this Sunday 3/15/2020!
Our plan is to keep things fairly informal at first and as we build momentum over the coming months will start to check folks in with Netlogger.
If you’re already on DMR, set your hotspot to the TGIF network and join us on TG 214. If you’re working through local DMR repeaters, you can connect to the TGIF network through the KX3B VHF repeater in Holtwood. You can get configuration details at repeaterbook.com.
Does this sound interesting but you don’t have a DMR radio? Or maybe you’ve got a radio but it’s not set up? We’ve got some experts in the club… get in touch with Mark (K3MRK), Don (W3DON), or Scott (KN3A). Drop by the club site on Elmer night (3rd Tuesday and it’s almost guaranteed someone will have a DMR HT running.
