The May program is scheduled to be presented by Daniel Petsinger KDØTGF. He is going
to be talking about Basic DMR (Digital Mobile Radio) operations and usage. Come to the
talk to learn why DMR is so fun to use and to demythify the complicated appearance of
using DMR. This talk will give you enough to get started in the world of DMR.
Dan has a long background in RF going back to 1995. He served in the US Air Force for
6 years working on Radio and Navigation equipment on board the E-4B (the DoomsDay
Plane). With this experience he has worked all RF from VLF to EHF and most digital
modes known even encryption modes. Dan owns and operate a wireless business that
allows him to work everyday with microwave systems in both the unlicensed and
licensed bands. He also started a DMR repeater network in Southern Minnesota called
South Central Minnesota Repeater Network (SCMNRN TG 312734) with three repeaters
up now, and plans to have seven up by the end of the year.
