How would you like to talk around the world with just a Tech license and an HT? You can if you use a DMR Radio.
How does that work? I have been told that my HT is only good to talk to a repeater. Well that is right, but DMR repeaters are interlinked with other repeaters around the world and your voice goes everywhere.
In the Tallahassee area there are repeaters (NX4DN) located at Greensboro in west Gadsden county near I-10 at 300 feet, a repeater in Tallahassee located downtown at 200 feet, and a repeater located in Wacissa near HWY 59 and Tram Rd at 500 feet. All sites are networked together and if you key any one site all sites key up in unison.
