G'day and welcome to my VK-DMR information page. Information on this page is gleamed from the VK DMR servers via the DMR hot spot channel and dashboards. Although I have taken care with gathering the stats they are not official and do not come from the officials that run the VK-DMR project. As such they are provided as is and without warranty. In saying that a big thanks to Peter VK3TE for embracing the site.

I'm providing the stats from a hobby and interest point of view in the spirit of Amateur radio, In my day job I look after a very large network these sorts of stats drive product development and reliability. This is not a name and shame list. There are a lot of good reasons for short transmissions. Please be kind.
