The SERC DMR Repeater on 444.700 MHz is located at our Laurel site along with the 145.130 MHz UHF FM repeater.
Hoping someone will step up and volunteer to write a Newbie’s Primer and Techie Guide to DMR radio at SERC.
Here’s some info:
dPMR is NOT DMR
dPMR is not compatible with DMR. To help us newbies this is just a quick explanation of the difference between dPMR and DMR.
Note: SERC’s new 444.700 MHz repeater is DMR and will NOT work with a dPMR transceiver.
- dPMR: The digital Private Radio standard relies on FDMA (Frequency Division) techniques, which relies on the old analogue way of physically dividing an existing channel.
- DMR: The Digital Mobile Radio standard relies on TDMA (Time Division) techniques, which relies on creating two 2 “virtual” channels within a single existing channel by transmitting information in “time slots”
There is an easy to follow explanation of both modes here
