DMR USE WITH A HOTSPOT WHATEVER….

PLEASE SHARE ON FB, PI-STAR, WHATCHAMACALIT, where ever there is use of the kenwoods with DMR hotspots. Thanks.

Okay, after battles and scraps, I want to pass along the follow:

1 Please refer to nxdninfo.com for OFFICIAL NXDN happenings on the commercial
Side of the NXDN WORLD WIDE NETWORK, www.nxdnradio.com is defunct and all
attempts to raise w2bui have failed. Unknown if he is a silent key or not. No one can confirm.
Also my name is Evans, not the minion Kevin.

 

2 Kenwood DMR with Dual Slot Direct Mode (the latest of most DMR releases) DOES NOT WORK WITH ANY HOT-SPOTS IN SIMPLEX MODE. Do not use it until the creators find a way to incorporate it Into the software. TURN IT OFF. This reverts to the old style of single time slot use. Until further notice.

Ralph Betts, W4ORL

It is with great sadness to inform our membership that OARC Director Ralph Betts W4ORL has become a Silent Key. Ralph contributed to OARC in a number of ways other than being a Director and he will be truly missed.

This is sudden and a total shock to all those who have known Ralph for years. We do not have any details of how Ralph passed. We will not speculate on the cause and will wait for any official cause to be announced by the family.

In the meantime, please keep Ralph’s¬†family in your thoughts and prayers.
