Thank You Law Enforcement!

TriStateDMR thanks law enforcement for the sacrifices they make everyday to protect our freedoms and preserve our safety. Lately, law enforcement has been unfairly attacked and we believe that without law enforcement our society would simply crumble into chaos. Consider donating to your statewide FOP today and whenever you see a memeber of law enforcement on the streets say THANK YOU!

XLX Transcode Hub Access

TriState DMR is excited to announce a link to XLX312B. This module accepts DMR, Dstar, and Fusion connections.

DStar Portal Testing

TriState DMR is excited to announce we have completed construction of DStar portal DCS312B our network. Many hams over the last few years have been scattered between several talkgroups, reflectors, and digital technologies. Our goal is to create an opportunity to for DStar hams to join DMR hams in one place. Sounds like fun, right?

More Choices, More Fun!

DMR+ has arrived on TriState DMR Network! DMR+ is the original network that links Motorola and Hytera repeaters. It also supports dongle interfaces such as MMDVM/DVMEGA, DV4mini, and OpenSpot. DMR+ features access to over 200 worldwide reflectors. One of the most innovative offerings of DMR+ is hobby topic talkgroups such as HF/DX and Contesting, Digital Radio, Raspberry Pi/Arduino, Astronomy, Skywarn, Computer Programming, and Sports.

Spring Forward! The Future is here. We changed talkgrops on Sunday, March 5th. Get your CPS ready to reprogram your radios if you haven't by now. If you cannot reprogram your radios, please refrain from using the system until your radio has been updated with the latest talkgroup configurations. Please visit the Talkgroups section to learn more.
