March 17th 10AM – 12PM
American Red Cross Building, 1601 W Lucas St., Florence SC
Florence Representatives of the South Carolina Communications Group, sponsored by the SC Department of Emergency Management, will be conducting the training session. This Training is designed to develop skills in this new technology called DMR or Digital Mobile Radio. South Carolina has developed a statewide UHF radio system to supplement the South Carolina Emergency Auxiliary Communications Network by using trained and qualified hams to assist when normal communications outlets are not available and/or overloaded. Also new Federal directives are in their infant stages requiring more extensive use of amateur radio in medical facilities.
The March training will consist of basic and intermediate DMR terms and concepts, operation and programming requirements to effectively operate most DMR transceivers being sold on the amateur market. The material will also overview DMR Hotspots such as the Shark RF Openspot and Raspberry Pi Variants . System Discussion will include the NC/SC PRN and the Brandmeister system.
