Anyone wanna hang out on the radio for a bit on May 29th @ 8:00pm? We are hams after all and we need reasons to use our beloved equipment!
This will be come as you may, leave when you want, whatever goes event. Got a technical question? Want to meet up with others to chit chat? Need a radio test? This will be the perfect time.
Please note that this is not a net and we will simply pass the conversation around to anyone that joins in.
For anyone planning on making the pilgrimage to Dayton, OH for Dayton Hamvention 2013 on May 17-19, 2013, there are several must haves for this event, including a good pair of walking shoes, a ball cap, lots of sunscreen, a sturdy backpack and most importantly, your DMR radio. By using your DMR radio, you can keep on constant communications with your peeps back in Toronto for the entire event by simply tuning into the W8AK DMR repeater located in Dayton, OH, and having your ham buddies back home tune into the VA3XPR DMR repeater in downtown Toronto. By tuning into the North American talkgroup on either DMR repeater, you will have immediate access to the other repeater, with no complicated IRLP or EchoLink codes to dial or remember – just key up your radio and you will be heard in both Toronto, ON and Dayton, OH.
So when you need your friends back in Toronto to look up some radio specification on-line or some prices on eBay, your DMR radio will become your hotline to information.
