SCHEART DMR Talk Group Change
Posted on April 19, 2020 by KD4JQJ

SCHEART has been notified that TAC1, TAC310 and DCI/Brandmiester talk groups will no longer be freely available after April 30th.

The decision was made by the host of these talk groups who distributes the audio connection to other C-bridge networks.  Due to the growing number of feeds and costs incurred in providing the talk group data, the owner decided to no longer provide free distribution.  C-bridge network owners will need to pay for access starting in May. 

SCHEART obtains data for these talk groups from the PRN C-Bridge network.  Administrators for the PRN network decided to drop these talk groups effective with the policy change. 
 
No other talk group on the SCHEART DMR system will be affected.  During emergency operation, access to these talk groups were already being dropped.  So this change will not affect SCHEART emergency support operations.


From logging data, it appears very few South Carolina users were actively talking on the three talk groups.  We apologize to those few users who have been active and one alternative is to obtain a  personal digital ‘Hotspot’ for the Brandmiester network

GSARC SIMPLEX nets


General News

The Grand Strand Amateur Radio Club has started a series of SIMPLEX radio nets in order to train the emergency procedures that would be needed in a time of degraded communications  operations.  As part of this training, bimonthly 2 meter SIMPLEX nets will be conducted,  at 10:30 AM on the first Saturday of each month   The net will begin on the GSARC Conway repeater (145.110 MHz/85.4) and then move to the chosen simplex frequency.  All amateur radio operators are invited to participate.  We will also periodically conduct both 6 meter and 10 meter nets.  These will also begin on the 145.110 repeater and then switch to the selected frequency.  These nets have no set schedule but will be based on both interest level and available dates.  Please refer to the Events Calendar on this website to see net dates once they are finalized.
