DMR High-powered Hotspot

There is a DMR High-powered hotspot located near Mowat Middle School in Lynn Haven.  

The frequency is 146.595 MHz, Color Code 1, Timeslot 2.
The antenna is only up about 20 ft. currently, so coverage is limited.  
The hotspot is connected to the TGIF network.  On this network, you can reach our local talk group, 
850 "Florida Panhandle Ragchew," and about 1700 other talk groups to check out.  
This hotspot is temporary until we can have a DMR repeater installed.
