I spent a few more hours working on the openSPOT project before being able to declare victory. The final piece of that puzzle being programming my DMR handheld to work with the new network hardware. The good news is that it’s all working, and was done in time to join 36 others in checking into the weekly Hoosier DMR Net.

DMR is certainly a different world than where I come from but I’ve come to prefer spending my time in the hobby in the places where the crowds are gathering. Besides, DV is going to help fill the void in ragchewing and keeping us connected while the HF bands continue to sputter and spiral towards ever deeper solar minimums.

We could talk more about this if you like. Let me know where to find you on on DMR and I’ll give you a call.
