Caribbean DMR Net

DMR has been catching on slowly but surely in the Caribbean, with many getting on via hotspots. 
Active on air are Trinidad, Barbados, St Vincent, Dominica and saint Lucia.
Barbados has quite a few active users, and the group there is working hard towards a repeater setup to allow coms locally and via IP
In Saint Lucia likewise soon we will see a repeater there. 
With the way it is going it is likely that we will see dmr repeaters on the other islands also.
The group of DMR users in the Caribbean decided a net would be a good way to garner more interest. It was decided after a poll to run the net on Thursday evenings at 8  Pm local (00:00 UTC) on the DMR Caribbean Talk Group (talk group: 969).
Last evening Dev 9Y4DG did the honours of being NC and he ran its first session successfully! A very good turnout as you can see below

I myself was not on air we had a social with j68DH and J68HZ and their families, next week I will be on also!
See you all on Talk Group 969 on Thursday at 8PM for the Caribbean net!

CEWN is always looking for net control stations. please use the contact form under the Net Control menu item to apply. In times of emergency this is a very important position. It might just be the only way to communicate right after a disaster.
