EmComm and Public Service information

DRAFT: work in progress

9-17: PS 1 and PS 2 have been added to all participating WA repeater managers including HKS's Sultan repeater, all hold-off timers have been added.  PS 1 is FT with 120 minutes of hold-off and PS 2 is PTT for 60 minutes with 60 minutes of hold-off time.

The PNW DMR network supports Washington state EmComm and other public service or public benefit organizations.  We have 2 dedicated talkgroups solely for use to support EmComm activities.  These two talkgroups can be used simultaneously so two communications links can operate independently for additional traffic or for different purposes.

We have affiliated with HamWAN which provides PNW DMR with use of their microwave backbone IP network.  This increases the robustness of our network and provides us with less dependency on the public IP networks (Internet).  We are also working to provide MMDVM servers for additional "Bridgets" via HamWAN, a project in active development now.
