    DMR 201 – Understanding DMR Networks – this is a forum presentation I have given at Hamcom and also at a couple of local clubs. In this presentation we will talk about the 3-4 different DMR Networks, how each of them connect to one another, and answer any questions from the audience in the Super Chat.

    This is a longer-than-normal video due to it being a Livestream with Q&A time, plus just interacting with the public. Use the Short links in the YouTube description to skip around in the video and watch just the parts that might interest you.

    Thanks for posting these on here. Might motivate me to spend more time lurking on QRZ.

    DMR makes a great two channel repeater as a stand alone. But the rest is IMHO just Skype without the video. The miracle of radio is your box and antenna and the other guy's box and antenna with ether in between. The rest is just VOIP in one form or another. The same goes for D-Star, Fusion, NxDn,P25, etc. No offense intended or criticism of the presentation. Now, if they were RF networked, it would be another story. Nationwide Ham MESH maybe?

    DMR would be much better if people would stop turning up their mic gain! And get more power! You think you're hitting the repeater with your HT from the basement, but you're not!

    This stuff is useful as an evolutionary step towards a ham data network. Check out the AREDN project if you are interested.

    ...the first 7 minutes and 15 seconds of which was all meaningless fluff before the actual live streaming starts, just shy of 10 minutes before DMR was even mentioned, and finally the (2 year old!) DMR presentation video display at the fifteen minute mark. Actual general information started at 19 minutes.

    It's oft said that life is too short for QRP. I contend that life is too short for this type of broadcast. Video stopped at 21:31 - and it won't be revisited. It's well past time to move onto something more productive.

    Guess I'm a glutton for punishment, but I wanted to give this one the benefit of the doubt.

    Did you miss the part where I said "use the short links in the YouTube description to click around"? I assume so. No need to watch the parts you don't want to, since this was an interactive Livestream and not a normal video.

    No, I didn't miss the "short links" suggestion. I was interested in watching from word go without interruptions - not cherry pick excerpts for "the good parts."

    However, we do agree on one thing: that it was "not a normal video."
