Are you a New Ham with a Technician license just itching to QSO with others across the country or around the world? Are you a Ham with HF privileges that lives in an HOA with antenna restrictions? Are you turned on by the thought of being able to communicate worldwide with a 1 watt Handi-Talki while sitting in your favorite chair in your living room? If any of these situations sound like you then DMR is your savior!

Digital Mobile Radio has been around for years in the commercial radio industry, and has only become available to Amateurs over the last several. Radio equipment prices have come way down from the once only available commercial gear from companies like Motorola. Today’s Ham can jump on the fastest growing Digital Voice mode for slightly over $100. How exciting is that?

If you are now saying to yourself “I need to know more”, then my presentation at the April OVARC membership meeting is the place to be. I will fill you in on the history of DMR as well of the basics of how to get started, and where it will take you. If you love technology and are ready to try new things, make sure to join me.
