7 days ago
To mark the launch of the BayNet Brandmeister Talk Group 31075, Kirk Smith K6RCT (Operator of the K6DOA DMR Repeater in SLO) joins us to talk Digital Mobile Radio, or DMR. DMR is a digital radio standard developed for use in commercial radio applications. Because of its commercial background, there are several operating and technological concepts that are unique to DMR that differ from what we are used to in other Amateur Digital Voice modes such as DSTAR and Yaesu System Fusion. In part one of this two part series, Kirk walks us through these fundamental DMR terms and concepts. In part two, we will talk about Brandmeister, cBridges topics and radio gear.
