How to Connect a BCM Link Radio to a BCR Repeater

How to Connect a BCM Link Radio to a BCR Repeater

Hey everyone, this is Ron. I'm with BridgeCom Systems. I wanted to take a moment and talk to you guys about a product that we sell or package we sell, where we do what's called a link radio to one of our BCR repeaters. We make a series of radios called the BCM Series. We have a 2 meter, 440 and 220. What makes these radios valuable and versatile is the accessory port on the back of these radios. These allow for being used in link applications that you might need for when you want to link your repeater through our RF-links to other sites. And what I'm gonna do in this video is I'm gonna actually show you guys that arrangement and how it's done.

How to Set-Up and Master Ham Radio Without Going Crazy, Part 2

For the new ham radio enthusiast, setting up the gear can be a challenge.  This is especially true for starter radios that are known to be high on features and design but low on intuitive usability.  Documentation?  Unless you can read broken English written by a Chinese national who has never studied the  language, you are out of luck.

Like many prepper’s, I understand the importance of communication following a disruptive event.  To that end, I took the easy road and purchased a couple of portable Baofeng radios so that I could communicate with the rest of the world when the grid is down.

How to Set-Up and Master Ham Radio Without Going Crazy, Part 1

On April 18th, I will be taking the test to get my Technician Class HAM radio license.  This is something I have been meaning to do for quite some time but honestly?  I got so wrapped up with getting my equipment, two Baofeng UV5 radios, to work that I lost sight of the goal.

No Nonsense Study GuigeTo prepare for my test, I have been studying Dan Romanchik’s free guide “The Non-Nonsense Technician Class License Study Guide” which is all good.  But still niggling me was the sense of failure at setting up my HAM radios.  The crazy thing is this: the license should come first because during the process of learning about amateur radio, comprehensive and understanding the gear becomes a whole lot easier.
