@MM3NTX I'm working up a presentation for our local club on some of the advantages of DMR. Thanks for confirming one of my points: getting out when there aren't any repeaters, Another was that DMR gives the possibility of DX for those for those who can't put up antennas.

The digital modes - #dmr and #dstar - have been great when 20m and higher have been dead during the sunspot minima. For those who have newly passed their license, it's helped maintain interest, especially for those in NZ as until recently, getting *any* DX on HF has been really hard. 73s - ZL2GX

@gmoretti Glad to be of help. Other issues to consider are the fact we can't travel to get up hills due to lockdowns, and also operating from home in the town is challenging with lots of local interference. I did write a couple of recent blog posts on DMR might be of interest.

Welcome here operator Michael.
