If you haven’t yet tried a DMR radio, this month you will get your chance. Last month we had a great introduction to DMR presentation by Michael Rickey, AF6FB of the PAPA Radio System. This month we are going to follow up on that meeting with some DMR radio demonstrations, and a discussion on installing firmware, contact databases and programming codeplugs. For many of our members this may all sound complicated so we are going to try to take some of the mystery out of this for you and show you on the big screen how simple it is once you understand the DMR concept. We’ll also show you how we programmed a DMR HT for Dave, K9KBX to take on his upcoming European vacation. He has repeaters programmed in for 16 different cities he is going to visit, and he will be able to call back to Santa Barbara with a single PTT press.

Getting into DMR is inexpensive and fun. If you are at all interested in learning more about it, please join us!

SBARC General Club Meetings are held at the Goleta Union School District, 401 N. Fairview Ave. in Goleta, right across the street from the Goleta Library. Doors open at 7:00 PM and the meeting starts at 7:30 PM. Put the date on your calendar and bring a guest!

Post expires at 11:30pm on Friday August 18th, 2017 but will still be available in the archives.
