A DMR repeater was on the air and on-network from June 2nd Thursday evening to June 5th Sunday at 2:00 PM – 444.1500 +5MHz CC1 – Convention floor HT coverage. 24 hams used the repeater over the weekend.

  • 444.1500 +5MHz CC1 – This is the Mt Hood pair which is in the community codeplug as well as ACB files
  • Talk-in, on-site and Talk-out Talkgroup is PNWR (31771 on TS2).
    • This talkgroup is on fulltime on most PNWDigital repeaters in the Pacific Northwest
    • Also available via Brandmeister, talkgroup ID: 31771.
    • Everyone not attending is encouraged to get on the air and hail those DMR folks in Seaside Oregon.
  • The repeater will be located between .1 to .75 miles from the convention center depending where the Comm Truck is parked.
  • Full HT coverage inside the convention center building.

If you are interested in learning more about DMR, stop by the WA7HAA table in the Flea Market. Steve is flying a beacon and PNWDigital sign There may be a PNWDigital meet-up also. Check back here for more information or last minute changes.

Additional thoughts:

  • As PNW Regional is full-time on most PNWDigital repeaters, everyone on the network will be able to participate
    • Please join in and chat with the crowds while they’re en-route or onsite
  • Seminar: only known, scheduled one is “Digital Voice Systems” that covers DMR (among others) generally
    • Saturday at noon, presented by K7UDR
  • Repeater Talkaround (simplex on the repeater’s output frequency) can be used for quick chats around the repeater
  • National Digital Simplex (U1): 441.000, Timeslot 1, TG ID 99, is the alternate local DMR comm off repeater

At the HAA table are (L to R): W7NCX, N6UOW, K7VKT, K7TPT and WA7HAA

Tripthi, K7TPT

I live in Portland, Oregon.  I’m 13 years old. I started ham radio with a Technician license in August 2020. I got my General in August 2021.

K7KVT was the person who got me interested in ham radio, and helped me get my license.

I use an Anytone 878 radio and I recently built a hotspot using a Raspberry Pi Zero.

My interests other than ham radio are:

  • Reading
  • Chemistry
  • Fixing things that are broken
  • Biking
  • Sushi 🙂
  • Baking

This sign appeared this weekend at WA7HAA’s Flea Market table but was first at Mike n Key earlier this year.

APRS Snapshot taken 0856 local time on Saturday, 6-4-22

Sparse attendance it appears…was busier when the doors opened this morning. This snapshot taken at 1330 local. I heard there were about 35 tables. This after a 3 year Covid-19 hiatus.
