DMR Nets

As ARES members we should always be prepared to communicate with whatever tools are available and fit the need.  DMR communications are becoming much more widespread, and are used almost exclusively at the state level.  To help us all become familiar and comfortable with this mode, we will be using DMR for the first ARES net of each month.  We will be using Talk Group 721 – Northern Colorado.  If you need a code plug for your radio, take a look at the RMHam site: https://www.rmham.org/wordpress/sample-codeplugs/

The goal is to make sure our members are familiar with this mode.  If you have a DMR capable radio, get it programmed and try it out.  If you have any questions or problems contact us, and we can help you out.  If you don’t have a radio and would like to try, we have a limited number of radios that can be loaned.  Let us know any way that we can help you: This email address is being protected from spambots.

NEW NET TRAINING / ZOOM TRAINING

For the last few weeks, ARES have been conducting weekly training on the Thursday ARES nets. We have decided to take this one step further and instead of doing our training on our net we will be provide Zoom training to replace our normal net on the third Thursday of the month. We feel that this will provide our trainees a better understanding of the presentations we plan in the future.

We will be posting the Zoom credentials very soon so check back on this website. Please join us, and feel free to chime in on the comment section following the training.  If you have suggestions for future topics, send a short email to This email address is being protected from spambots.
