Attention DMR users within the ten central Ohio counties served by COSWN. The digital readiness net will follow the normal analog net each week on DMR.
This will be a directed net that follows the same format as our current analog net. The goal is to gauge interest and participation in the use of DMR. If sufficient interest exists, our goal will be to integrate the digital net with the analog net.
At this time, we will only be conducting readiness nets on DMR. We will not be monitoring DMR during a severe weather event. 146.760 analog remains the standard place to reach COSWN.
A DMR Talk Group has been created to support weather in the central Ohio area. The Talk Group ID is 31392 and it will be on Time Slot One of the Columbus DMR repeaters. It will also be available to hot spot users via BrandMeister.
It is important to note that this talkgroup is not meant for routine communication or informal chat at any time. While anyone is welcome to listen, only spotters in our COSWN Skywarn counties should check in. Those counties are: Delaware, Fairfield, Fayette, Franklin, Hocking, Licking, Madison, Pickaway, Ross and Union.
To briefly summarize, our analog net will take place on Tuesdays at 7:30 PM on 146.760 MHz. A digital net will take place on DMR, TG 31392 after the analog net completes. The format for both nets will be similar.
The Central Ohio Severe Weather Network is excited to incorporate Digital Radio into our weather nets. We anticipate adding P25 in the future and look forward to your participation. We value your comments and input. You can send feedback to us via e-mail at:
