Hello everyone. I am new to the realm of HAM radio and hoping to pass my exams on next February 13th. My only piece of HAM equipment at this time is a Baofeng UV-5R which at the moment I'm using only in receiving mode. I've been watching youtube videos about the different DMR transceivers available and I've found them interesting but, sadly, there are no DMR repeaters in my area (the closest one is over 100 miles away from my town). Now, the big question is...would DMR still be useful somewhat in my situation, or with the lack of a DMR repeater in my area this purchase would'nt make sense at all? Thanks !
