    I find it strange that this site advertises using such old technology. such as the DMR radios based on the PCM system.
    yes this technology is old as the telephone system. born back in the 1960’s. pulse code modulation was how telecommunications moved forward using digital techniques. even during the early 1980’s we used packet this too was borrowed from the PCM system adapted from earlier digital systems found in the commercial sector.
    the best we have to offer is BPSK which has not yet reached it’s full potential. As for producing software which removes the operator from actually making the contact just how stupid is that idea. of course i refer to FT8.
    so when is some one going to come up with something original. we have seen this week an expirement which as saved lives from amateur radio new ideas in thialand of all places. another britain a G3. so both these ideas have been from my generation. those of us in our 70’s. so when are the young going to make advances, not old rubbish
