The Explosion of Digital and why it is growing

This subject of digital as in DMR is an Exploding system compared to anything in HAM Radio, bar none, and has been for many years as a dynamic mode that is often changing.   A mode that is challenging the HAM radio community's user base as it evolves. This compared to the stagnant water of any "anything" or mode in HAM Radio.

A network from it's inception that offered a single manufacture and commercial (public service) grade devices is now offering numerous manufactures, important to note that no other HAM Radio mode offers as many devices to select from in purchasing. The on "fire" prices are beneficial to the consumer as value for money, as found in the many affordable devices that are offered in Digital Mobile Radio. The cost of DMR device almost comparing and rival inferior FM analog transceivers.

Benefits include:  device firmware exploits from Travis to Ty all to the benefit of the end user or ham radio operator.  With dismal advances in any other aspect of the radio hobby this is welcome change and may stimulate old bones in other areas of the hobby.

To the surprise and joy of many in the DMR community the introduction of Hotspots and its popularity continue to evolve and explode the digital user base, with the ability to shift users moving to self empowered devices and also have the option to use the many repeaters as backup if available for communication tools.

Now, to the joy and relief of most digital users we have the flexibility of moving off a repeater that most often is or could be abusive by an inept individuals with a CB mentality.



We have all heard those narcissistic or abusers on a repeater, and at the time many may be wishing for the handheld batteries to die.  The current proven popularity of DMR and at time explosion with the evolving hot-spots help with territorial repeater behavior.

This is a positive and optimism view of HAM radio and not ment as disparaging or alienating, as we expect this post to be manipulated by some. HAM radio is a hobby first and the fundamentals is bring people together.

We understand Digital Mobile Radio is the follow -
