It was expressed that there are hams to are rail fans. So should there be a Railfan group on PNWDigital?
Interesting idea…a quick look through the Google box showed no DMR talkgroups for railfans, Only thing found was EchoLink that supported railfans with a node. IO Groups has 20 railfan groups. AllStar may have some support as well as many standalone FM repeaters. No rail on BM either and they have 667 published TG’s. It would seem that DMR would be a shoe-in for a dedicated talkgroup. Likely to be a dedicated BM TG at some point.
So should be make an effort to support Railfans in some form? Possibly on an existing talkgroup and should there be a weekly net? Or create a new BM TG for railfans or just use their Net 1 or Net 2 group?
Open to ideas…
