DMR “Linked TalkGroups” Update

Fellow DMR Users:

As of yesterday afternoon, we now have a new Link on our Local 2 TalkGroup!

Jim Blocker KF5IW has been working behind the scenes with repeater owners in Charlotte County to expand our Local 2 Link so that it includes the repeaters in Punta Gorda and Englewood. (Thanks, Jim!)

So, our Local 2 enables hams in Charlotte, Lee and Collier Counties to talk freely with each other.


The “Linked TalkGroups” have different names in each county…

Lee/Ft Myers is “Local 2”

Charlotte is “SW Florida”

Collier/Naples is “Local 9”

…so be aware of that if you are in Charlotte or Collier County and operating on their Zones on your HT or Mobile!

And, of course, be aware that more people can hear you when you’re in a QSO!

I recommend that you remember to take a “break” occasionally to allow others to join a QSO that runs for more than five minutes. Treat this Linked System as you would any other area-wide repeater.
