Pacificon 2016

Hello All:

I am pleased to announce the 10th Anniversary of the Pacificon Digital Dinner.

It will take place Friday October 14, 2016 at the same great location as last years “standing room” only event.

Buffalo Wild Wings
200 Montgomery Street
San Ramon, CA 94583
925 380-6631

Seating will start at 5:00PM and the room is reserved until 10:00PM.

Buffalo Wild Wings has more than 40 beers available at this location, so I’m sure you’ll find a favorite.

Ken Mirabella, KM6YH President of Powerwerx Inc. will be our guest speaker this year.

Powerwerx, Inc are the folks behind the New Terra TR-7200 VHF and TR-7400 UHF DMR radios.

Supply of both of these radios will be for sale at the HRO booth at Pacificon 2016.

This will be the first year, NEW DMR radio inventory will be for sale at a Pacificon event since NorCal DMR started down the DMR path in 2011.

Since that time more than 55 DMR repeaters have become active in Northern California with more than 95 active DMR repeaters within the State of California.

NorCal DMR will have a club table, headed up by Bruce, NG6D this year to assist with programming of DMR radios, answering DMR related questions, a place to gather and solve other life problems, including “marriage counseling.”

There will also be a one hour DMR Forum early Saturday morning at 08:00AM October 15, 2016 at the Pacificon 2016 host hotel, the San Ramon Marriott in Salons G-H and another DMR Code Plug 101 Forum put on by the SNARS folks later Saturday afternoon.

So this will to be the BIGGEST and the BEST DMR Pacificon Event in History.

Please make sure you get your tickets by registering at:

Attendees – Pacificon2016

Do it before October 3, 2016 and safe a few bucks, so you can afford to buy a new DMR radio.

See you all at Pacificon 2016.

New Emergency Talk Group

Due to the high demand for emergency communications on DMR we have implemented two new (worldwide) Talk Groups

TG 9911 – EMCOM US
TG 9112 – EMCOM EU

Please keep these Talk Groups clear. Use them only for Emergency Communications!

(FAQ: why is there a 9 infront of each TG? The 9 stands for global TGs that are not bound to any country.)

BrandMeister LastHeard and HoseLine

Hello All:

I was ably to get “iFrame” working to embed The BrandMeister LastHeard and HoseLine into the NorCal-BrandMeister Web site.

I still need to figure out how to add a “files” section that users can download Code Plugs from.

Thanks,
