|I welcome your connection!
All users of Digital modes and analog are welcomed into the System.
Please check your microphone levels before you connect to the system.
Please maintain a 5-second delay between transmissions so that others stations
can get into the system and the conversation. This also allows all the various links to
drop. There is a automated delay in all aspects of the Digital modes and analog. Please
try and follow the 3-minute rule. LET IT DROP all the way wait 5 seconds. All aspects of
basic amateur radio guidelines and protocol should be followed at all times.
PLEASE ID WITH YOUR CALL SIGN EVERY 10 MINUTES
WHEN YOU'RE ON ANALOG OR ANY OF THE DIGITAL MODES
47 CFR § 97.119 - Station identification
This is a zero-tolerance policy of the WMRA.
NO TALKING ABOUT POLITICS AND RELIGION.
CONNECTING TO DIGITAL MODES
ALLSTAR, ECHOLINK, DMR, YSF, P25, NXDN AND D-STAR
ARE ALL LINKED TOGETHER.
I HAVE TRIED MY BEST TO MEDIGATE ALL OF THE NOISES FROM DIGITAL,
PLEASE DON'T COMPLAIN ABOUT A NOISE YOU CAN HEAR ON THE SYSTEM.
IF YOU ARE USING RF FOR THAT MODE MOST LIKELY YOU WON'T HEAR
THESE NOISES. BUT IF YOU ARE ON A APP LIKE DROID STAR AND DVSWITCH MOBILE.
YOU WILL PROBABLY HEAR THESE NOISES. I ALSO INCORPORATE A OPEN DOOR POLICY.
I LOOK FORWARD TO YOU BECOMING A PART OF THE WMRA AND REALLY HOPE
YOU ENJOY YOURSELF AND MOST OF ALL HAVE FUN!
