The DMR System
Trygve Svärd, KDØPNQ
The presentation will explain how to set up and use a Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) to reach the entire world with a $100 investment.
The DMR system allows 2 independent communications on each frequency and, with the many repeaters in the Twin Cities area, enables us to communicate locally as well as world wide. A lot of website information will be shared for individual education and to pro-vide a better understanding of the many features of the DMR system – including local small wifi-type repeaters to connect DMR radios to the world.
