This net will strive to be a critical place to share news and information about DMR and hobby large in Michigan. We will strive to deliver news on DMR development (new repeaters, talkgroups or events), as well as Michigan specific amateur radio events happening in our (large) neck of the woods.
Test DMR Equipment and Systems
This net will strive to be a vehicle to test DMR equipment and systems. This includes operator equipment (HT's, mobile rigs, and DVAP's), repeaters / system links, and BrandMeister infrastructure.
Engage in Fellowship with Other Operators
This net will strive to encourage fellowship and goodwill between radio operators inside and outside of Michigan. The net is open to any licensed amateur with a radio and a desire to key up to join.
PlanningThere are several steps needed in planning this net. The most critical of which is selecting both a day/time for the net, and a talkgroup on which to host. We could certainly toss a dart to determine these, however it's much more ideal to evaluate the best days and times, as well as partner with link system groups and talkgroup administrators. We are attempting to be mindful of other statewide DMR nets for surrounding states (Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, Pennsylvania, West Virginia) yet establish and secure a place for Michigan.
Net Control Stations
We are looking for Net Control Stations who are willing to pick a week to run the net. We could have one person do this, however as this net is meant for amateurs all over the state (and the global), having multiple NCS is preferable. This also greatly helps the sustainability of the net and allows for vacations, life events and equipment outages.
If you interested in being a net control for this net, please contact Dustin N8RMA at firstname.lastname@example.org or via the contact us form on this site.
