Well thanks to the efforts of the NEDECN folks and the raising of the antenna at the Eastham NE1B repeater (145.360) I was able to make my first DMR contact on 2 meters tonight with W1MLL. The repeater will apparently be back on the network soon; looking forward to trying the full-fledged system. I know this is old hat to some of you guys but as far as I'm concerned it's a potential rekindling of my interest in amateur radio, which has been for a variety of reasons pretty much non-existent for years.
I'm using a Connect Systems CS751 portable into my tower mounted Comet GP-15, and probably just barely making it into the Eastham repeater, but good enough for starters.
I know a few of you that are obviously using DMR (yeah you Mullaney and JFR also), any other SNE members that have the capability?
