Any Ham Operators on MotoTURBO DMR?

Recommended Posts

I'm just wondering if there are any hams at AVSIM who operate on MotoTURBO DMR? If so, give me a call  sometime on any of these Talk Groups as appropriate for your area of the world:

 

World Wide – TG# 1 (PTT Activated)
World Wide English – TG# 13
North America – TG# 3
USA 1776 – TG# 1776 (PTT Activated)
TAC-310 – TG# 310 (PTT Activated)
UA English 1 – TG# 113 (PTT Activated)
UA English 2 – TG# 123 (PTT Activated)
Midwest Regional – TG# 3169
Indiana Statewide – TG# 3118
Local (True Local) – TG# 2

I just bought a Tytera MD-380 UHF DMR HT a few weeks ago for $110.00. Sure beats mega-$'s for a

/\/\  or Hytera radio though!

 

My very first contact on DMR was with a nice gentleman in Durban South Africa, followed by a nice QSO with another ham in Wales. It is amazing to walk around with a tiny 5w HT and talk half-way around the world! :dance:

 

Of course the system is using the internet via c-Bridges to interconnect all of the DMR-MARC repeaters in the world, but still...

 

The QRM here is so bad that I sold all of my HF gear years ago. It was just too discouraging to hear a 5/9 report from a ham in Saudi Arabia when I could barely copy through the hash. Now with DMR I can at least have perfect copy. Think of it as an improved version of cellular technology for ham use. :Applause:

Also a ham: VE2DGZ. And you got me interested in finding out more about that technology.

In as far as QRM is concerned, I'm in the same boat as you. I still have the HF rig though. Don't transmit much.

Tks for the info again Bill.

Hi Fr. Bill,

Congrats on the Tytera. I'll have to look you up. I mostly run a Moto XPR7550 HT and XPR5550 in the vehicle for TRBO. Moto XTS5000 and XTL5000 for P25 and various Icom/DVAP for D-Star. Hardly use analog at all.

 

Mostly monitor NA or TAC310 talk groups, ID: 3112463

 

 

73,

Mark

Hi Mark,

 

My subscriber id is 3118469, and all my info is on http://qrz.com

 

Given that TAC310 requires someone at both ends to 'pickle' the repeater to grab the TG, I don't see too much point in monitoring it. NA or WW English are my two primary monitoring groups because both are always on (unless someone local 'pickles' the repeater to grab one of the PTT groups).

 

By parking on the WW-English or NA, and scanning I managed to hear most of the activity. :hi:

I've met quite a few hams from up north. I've been rag chewing on DMR to a fellow in Leamington, Ontario for the past week. I was attracted mostly by the name of the town, wondering if one of my remote ancestors may have had a hand in founding the town. Two brothers came across the pond in 1636. Christopher founded the "Lemyng" clan in the nascent U.S. colonies. The other seems to have disappeared from all historical archives...
