I am interested in how groups are including DMR in their planning for disaster assistance. I know groups are including DMR in their regular nets, but how exactly is this mode to be used? It does not seem like this mode is useful for ham-to-ham work since we have analog repeaters and simplex. Why would a volunteer need to speak to another volunteer two counties away during a disaster? On the other hand, DMR talk groups could be a good way for EOCs to connect to each other.
