If you can't seem to make headway and
need to reach out for the PNWDigital help, then read on.
We think that we have a comprehensive
online support system in our 3 primary IO groups for almost
all the general questions that are typically top of the list
for a new DMR user. But everyone absorbs information
differently. We have primarily a text based network of
support. You may prefer images, YouTube videos or face
to face Elmering. But here for now, we are passing
along information on how you may be able to help yourself by
using our IO Groups or our Website. In other words this is
going to be your guide to self-help.
Hopefully this may reduce your
frustration starting out in DMR. There is a steep
learning ramp. We hope that this page along with our
IO groups, check-n and tech nets and over the air contacts
will help to flatten that curve.
If our website, IO Groups and
Over-the-Air conversations have not
answered your questions, then please
write to the support team at:
