NXDN Digital Amateur Radio


Welcome to the website for NXDN Digital Amateur Radio in Scotland

NXDN is for licensed radio amateurs and you must hold a valid amateur radio licence before you apply for an NXDN Radio ID number and most definitely before you attempt to press the PTT button.

A new digital repeater for radio amateurs in Edinburgh (GB7EU) has recently been licensed and is currently undergoing testing (Sept 2019). This repeater will have an excellent coverage of the Edinburgh and surrounding area.

If you have an NXDN radio and are outwith the GB7EU repeater coverage you can use an MMDVM hotspot which has NXDN capabilities to access the NXDN Reflectors.  If you do not have an NXDN radio but have a DMR radio and an MMDVM hotspot you can use the DMR2NXDN Mode in Pi-Star to access the NXDN Reflectors.
