SW
DMR Group
Digital Amateur Radio for South West England
Introduction

Amateur radio has taken the inevitable digital route. The SW DMR group is an attempt to look at a new way of funding amateur radio repeaters.

GB7KM was our first digital repeater in the South West and is connected to the Phoenix UK DMR CORE. With your support and enthusiasm we would like to expand this, and other networks into other towns within our area.

Our aim is not to compete with fellow amateurs or repeater groups but to provide more of what the amateur radio community wants, through crowd-funding. We appreciate the work the repeater keepers and their groups have put in to provide their repeaters, but our efforts should be seen as an extension to and not in competition to that work, after all the repeaters are there to be used by everyone.

We have taken the DMR (Digital Mobile Radio) phrase and interpreted it in its broadest term. The SW DMR Group supports all Digital Amateur platforms. With sufficient funding a D-Star or Fusion repeaters could also be added to our sites, but this will need to be driven by feedback and ultimately your financial support.

We are a non-profit group and any money donated will be used to buy equipment, support running costs and fund future investment.
