Since December 2019 LARU members have been experimenting with POCSAG pagers on VHF.

In September 2020 phase 1 of the LARU POCSAG Network could be accomplished. The network currently consists of 4 transmitters sharing timeslots on the LARU frequency 144.8625 MHz and sending messages to pagers. Every amateur radio operator can generate such messages via dapnet (Decentralized Amateur Paging Network) and receive such messages with a POCSAG pager tuned to 144.8625 MHz.

The LARU deliberately chose the VHF band for paging in order to gain an optimal nation-wide coverage. Emergency communication is also standing in the foreground. That's why our partner LEMCIT (Luxembourg Emergency Communications Intervention Team) has equipped the members of the LARU emergency communication team with professional Oelmann pagers.

More informations concerning the LARU POCSAG Network are available here.


Growing DMR network 2019

Posted in News

Currently the LARU operates 6 fixed DMR (digital mobile radio) repeaters in Luxembourg. The coverage of 2 of our repeaters (LX0FSK and LX0DMR) could be improved significantly with new QTH's. The valley of Larochette now has coverage in DMR by the repeater LX0LARO. We are also experimenting with frequency-sharing.

The interconnected LARU repeaters form a modern network for digital voice communications. The interconnection is achieved within the BrandMeister-network. Advantages of the LARU BM DMR network are:

  • Exclusive application of the mode DMR (digital mobile radio), avoiding conflicts with other modes on the same repeater.
  • Double channel capacity because of two available timeslots.
  • Possibility of roaming by the enduser, eliminating the manual switching between repeaters.
  • Easy operation because of flexible talkgroups.
  • Worldwide availability by more than 3800 repeaters within the Brandmeister network (October 2019).

It is planned to improve the network in the near future. More about the LARU BM DMR network can be found in the category On The Air / DMR.
