BEARS, in its continuing partnership with the Disney Emergency Amateur Radio Service (DEARS) at Walt Disney World in Orlando, is pleased to announce a new DMR link between New York and Florida.
The link is the result of extensive work by Ken Kerns/N2ZXS, Kurt Livingston/N7WWL and our own Jerry Cudmore/K2JRC, and utilizes a Florida-based C-Bridge administered by Bob Schneider/KC2CWT. Bob’s C-Bridge delivers a feed to the Bronx TRBO C-Bridge, administered by Bernie Berger/NY4Z — who in turn, routes it to Jerry’s DMR repeater here.
BEARS members, and all licensed users with Digital Mobile Radio capability, can connect to this link — and with an extensive DMR network serving greater NYC as follows:
