DMR Net Information
GBARC is increasing use of DMR, so we will be adding additional nets for DMR users. There will be a DMR Repeater Net each month on the third Tuesday of each month. This is an optional net, however our DMR Net will allow us to test our DMR Radios, and make sure our codeplugs are programmed consistently.
The nets will be held on the Bridgeport ARES repeater, and will start off on TAC-1. After we check in on TAC-1 we will then migrate to DMR LOCAL on the Bridgeport Repeater, then go on to SIMPLEX, first on UHF and then VHF.
In order to insure the net is accessible by all the schedule for check ins is as follows:
8:00 – 8:10 – TAC-1 (any ARES Repeater)
8:10 - 8:20 - TAC-11 (any ARES Repeater)
8:20 – 8:30 – BPT Local A (only on the Bridgeport Repeater)
8:30 – 8:40 – VHF Simplex on channel DV1 (145.790)
8:45 – 8:50 – UHF Simplex on channel DU1 (441.000)
8:50 - 9:00 - TAC1 Roundup and Comments
We do not expect every member to be able to hear everyone in all situations. If you can hear a station, please try to relay back to Net Control.
DMR Programming Information
Our DMR Repeater Nets will be held on the ARES Repeater Network using ARES TAC-1 (Talkgroup 8902, CC1, TS2) . Following checkins, we will move to TAC-11 (Talkgroup 8909 CC1, TS-1), LOCAL (Talkgroup 9. CC1. TS2).
ARES Network DMR channels are:
In emergencies, we should be able to use DMR Simplex. DMR Simplex Channel are assigned to Simplex (Talkgroup 99),and should be referred to as:
Connect Systems CS-800 Programming for Simplex
If you have an Connect Systems 800/800D here is a sample for you to use:
If you have an Anytone 868/878 here is a sample for you to use:
GBARC Leadership encourages all members to participate in DMR networks, and we request that you program your radios to include the ARES Network assignments and the Simplex frequencies as listed above.
