New DMR Help and Information Pages

Since our last DMR training, the SRARC has had a large growth in the number of members getting involved with DMR.
As with any new radio or mode, we all have questions and issues. To help with those I have created a new section for DMR Radio on the SRARC Website. The new section is located on the main menu of our website.
Over the next few weeks, I’ll be adding helpful information about various problems and solutions along with reviews on various DMR radios and configurations. The price range of DMR radios is wide so I’ll list several options that are worth looking into.
I’m also in the process of creating a Code Plug for the SRARC Members to help you get started using your new DMR Radio. It’ll contain the common digital talkgroups and I’ll be organizing all the VHF/UHF repeaters by distance radiating from the 145.230 W4CAT Lavergne Repeater. As well as the NWS, RC ARES and Mt Juliet Simplex Frequencies.

If you have any suggestions of things you’d like to learn about with DMR please feel free to contact us using the Contact Us form on the website.

Thank You,

SRARC DMR Training

This past Sunday a group of us from the SRARC met to learn and program a few different types of DMR Radios.
It was a great learning experience for those of us who haven’t worked with DMR.
One thing we did learn is that we liked the AnyTone AT-D878UV Plus Bluetooth w/GPS over a few others we tried.
I don’t have any photos of our time working with the radios so I thought I would post this video from Ham Radio Crash Course going over its many features and what makes this a great radio.
