Sydney DMR and P25 repeaters

Postby citabria » Fri Oct 06, 2017 6:12 pm

Hi Guys,

I have been a long time P25 users in the HAM bands now, and I am starting to play around with a MD380 DMR radio as well. Is anyone else playing around with digital modes on HAM radio?

Cheers,
Matt

WICEN put out a Expression of Interest back around November 2019 from memory, asking members if they would be interested in doing a group purchase of DMR Radio's.

Don't know what the take up was, or if it was for the HAM Bands or WICEN's own Commercial Network or a 3rd Party Network Provider.

WICEN as part of the COVID-19 Prep's, are required to report Members Status on a Daily Bases. WICEN is doing so by a runing a Call-in Net at 09:00 & 21:00hrs daily, with the WICEN VKDMR Network, Talkgroup 3810 monitored at 09:00 for the Call-in. https://nsw.wicen.org.au/

Having been off air for 2 years, I'm not up on the WICEN VKDMR Network or DMR/P25 Digital Amateur Systems in general at all. Last I knew . . . 'F' Callsigns were not permitted to use Digital, but looks like that restriction had been lifted, so I'm in catch up mode.

Kev might know more.

Grant,

Just go and apply for your radio id via www.radioid.net and it'll come through in the next few days. Since the F calls have been allowed access the digital modes have gone nuts.

Good to see

Cheers

Matt,

Was interesting reading and watching some YouTube of the Amateur Radio DMR material yesterday at work.

Can understand why DMR Networks have popped up everywhere, unlike Internet Linking, DMR Protocol provides heaps more flexibility.

And by the looks of it, the many hated Chinese Radio Manafatures are the ones running with the DMR consept, as I was unable to find one original mainstream radio manufacturer cattering for the Amateur Radio DMR market, Icom, Yasue only supporting their own D-star and Fission Digital systems.

Plenty of Handheld DMR Units to look at, just need to wait for a Half Decent looking Remote Head DMR Dual Band Radio to come available now.

Grant.
