Great talk with Robert VE1RMJ tonight on the Round Table about DMR. I learned lots of stuff, got some web links to check out and generally am not quite so confused about DMR. Thank you Robert for all the great info.
Just a reminder the Newbie Round Table is back on tonight January 27, 2019. Tonight we will be discussing DMR with some amateurs who have experience using the VHF DMR Digital modes.
Canwarn Atlantic will be activated at 1200 Sunday Jan. 20th, 2019 for the storm coming up the eastern seaboardC
During the activation if you record the information and radio it in the following order it will be very efficient.

Due to the pending storm on Sunday through to Monday the CanWarn System has been activated and will be using the MAVCOM system from 1200 to 2359 on Sunday. Therefore the TARC Newbie Round Table has been cancelled for Sunday January 20th.
The Round Table will be back on January 27th. We will be talking DMR that night with Robert VE1RMJ along with Martin VE1KLR and Kevin VE1KEV providing their experience and expertise to the subject.
Everyone stay safe over the weekend during the storm and we will talk to you on the 27th.
