DMR-MARC and DMRPlus Partnership Update :
READ HERE :  https://dmr-marc.net/

Dear DMR-MARC users,
As a follow-up to our announcement in August 2016 regarding our partnership with the DMRPlus network, we have some more exciting news to share with you regarding our collaboration with the DMRPlus team. Firstly, our testing of the new DMRPlus interconnection talkgroups, which include DMR+ USA (TG133), DMR+ UK (TG143) and DMR+ South Pacific (TG153) has been very successful and we have decided to roll these talkgroups out to all repeaters connected to our network. We have also added DMR+ Quebec - French (TG131), and DMR+ Latin America - Spanish (TG134). This will allow any device connected to the DMRPlus network, including commercial Motorola or Hytera repeaters, homebrew MMDVM repeaters or base stations, the upcoming DV4mobile and DV4mini users worldwide to access users on either the DMRPlus or DMR-MARC networks. The rollout has already started and will be completed over the next few weeks.

DMR-MARC Worldwide Net Award

DMR-MARC Worldwide Net Award

DRAFT.

UNDER DISCUSSION :::    As per ANDRE VE3WZW
...... THIS INFORMATION IS ALSO ON THE BLOG BUT NO PUBLIC ....

DRAFT as per VE3WZW Andre

The DMR-MARC Worldwide Net Award is being considered as a fun award Certificate for checking into the Saturday weekly Net to promote and encourage reliable communications world wide to help all amateurs improve their stations and to share friendship and good fellowship, testing the infrastructure of connected DMR Mototrbo repeaters.

DMR-MARC Worldwide Net Award Certificate - for checking into the Net
example certificate of membership or merit (Artwork by Andre/Sandra VE3WZW)

DMR-MARC Worldwide Net Award Certificate

The original prerequisite for the certificate was that one had to call in at least 10 consecutive times to the DMR-MARC Worldwide Net 

The artwork can be handled in one of two ways should that be decided.

1.)  One method would be to simply email the certificate, with the persons name and call sign, with the expectation that the recipient would print it out on their own printer. I see this as being a free service.
