DMR Presentation coming Thrusday Auguest 17th

The Platte County Amateur Radio Group is sponsoring a DMR presentation on Thursday August 17th from 6-9pm at the National Weather Service (NWS) Central Region Headquarters, 7220 NW 101st Terrace, Kansas City, MO.  This is a federal building and has security restrictions.  Please bring a valid, government issued ID with you.  They don’t allow any weapons into the facility either.  Thanks Bill Gery (KA2FNK) for helping make this event happen!

Chuck Kraly (K0XM) and Tom Wheeler (N0GSG) will be the primary speakers.  Chuck, and the BYRG gang, are responsible for many of the DMR repeaters in the metro area.  Chuck will be describing DMR, will talk about the BYRG repeaters and their programming concept. Tom is the mastermind of the N0GSG Contact Manager software.  Have you bought your new DMR radio and looking for an easier way to program all of those DMR MARC contacts?  Did someone give you their code plug as a starting point but you want to make changes? Come hear how Tom’s Contact Manager is just what you are looking for.  This software is known worldwide; we are lucky enough to have him in our backyard and willing to come share with us. 

We are hoping to make this a regional discussion on DMR.  Who is doing what in the area with their repeaters?  How are you building out your code plugs?  Are you using hot spots to connect to the networks?  Are you connecting your DMR radio to D-Star or Fusion? Are you using your D-Star or Fusion radio to connect to DMR?  Digital modes are emerging as an increasingly popular option in the world of amateur radio.  Come join the new and old alike and learn more about it, or share what you have learned.  It should be a good time.

We look forward to seeing everyone on the 17th.
