DMR (Digital Mobile Radio) Presentation - Saturday, August 12th at 6:00 P.M. - Nixa Fire Station - 711 N. Main St

You will want to put this on your calendar now - Chuck Kraly, K0XM, will be at the next Nixa ARC club meeting and presenting on DMR - "What is it and how do I get started."  The meeting will be held at the Nixa Fire Station, located at 711 N Main St in Nixa with the meeting starting at 6:00 p.m.

Here's a little about Chuck:  He has been a licensed amateur since 1979, original call was N0BIW.  He and the Back Yard Repeater Group (BYRG) have been instrumental in the growth of the Brandmeister DMR network in the KC Metro area and across the state.  Currently, BYRG has 5 UHF and 1 VHF Brandmeister DMR repeater operational in the KC Metro area, with a second VHF repeater in the works.  Chuck and Bob, W0NQW, started the BYRG in 1986 - and the BYRG history is eerily similar to how and why the Nixa ARC started back in 2001.

In addition to the DMR repeaters, BYRG maintaines repeaters on all bands 2-meters and above.

Chuck assists with the Brandmeister with the wiki, new modes, and perk testing.

Professionally, Chuck works for BVCI, a division of Black & Veatch, as a Test Technician / Construction Manager / Field Engineer  

If you want to learn more about DMR and its expansion into the Southwest MO region, THIS is a presentation you want to attend.  

Please send this out to any other groups in the region so that as many hams as are interested in learning about DMR can attend.  EVERYONE is welcome!!!
