At the moment, all of the network repeaters operate on 70cm, with the exception of Darwin.

As we all know, 2m is better suited to rural applications because of improved coverage.

Most of us use mono band 70cm radios, but if there was a 2m DMR repeater available in a rural/regional area that currently had no UHF DMR coverage, people would have the incentive to purchase a VHF radio….

Is your club interested in a 2m DMR repeater? If so, please contact Peter VK3TE.
