April’s Meeting


Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) is a digital voice mode that is rapidly

gaining in popularity in the Amateur Radio world. The high-quality of the audio and low-cost of the radios makes it a good choice to explore the world of digital voice. DMR allows the user to not only talk digitally with others on a local repeater, but through worldwide networks, users can talk to others around the globe using this mode. In our presentation on April 14th, we'll talk more about what DMR is, how we built a DMR repeater for Davis County, and how to get started.


Brandon Rasmussen, K7BBR has been a ham since 2009. His interests in the hobby have varied from earning DXCC, VUCC satellite, to building a DMR UHF repeater.



He lives in Woods Cross with his wife and four children. His day job is an airline pilot flying the Canadair Regional Jet.

The plan is to better understand who we are and what interests we have so we can improve our meetings and be more responsive to our needs.

Running the club store is a big job, and for every hour our volunteers are selling things there is about as many hours dedicated to loading, unloading, ordering, inventory, pricing, and other tasks involved. We're looking for another volunteer to help our existing staff. We want to both lighten the load for existing staff, and perhaps expand to make our store available at more ham radio events.
