Lessons Learned

  • Do not use DMR for events like this. People might be able to bring their own equipment, but the audio-quality is not good enough for the occasional user.
  • Tetra would probably be the better choice.
  • Have 10 to 20 radios prepared and ready to use from the moment PL arrives on site. Having site-coverage for those is a very nice to have, but not a must-have just yet.


Stands for Radio Operations Center You can reach us at DECT 2580 (Group)

Current reservations:

Most of our Infra is hooked up in Infra:Tower and the hardware is placed in Infra:E0.

If you BYOD, and you do not have a special configuration such as HAM-Radio, please step by ROC for programming your radio.


Bringing your own DMR-radio to use when you are volunteering is allowed, if it is programmed correctly to work with the Orga-system. An example of a radio that should work well, and has a lot of features to play with after the event: "Anytone AT-D878UVII PLUS V3" Beware of the "PLUS" part.
Beware of local rules/laws/regulations when using a transmitter!

If you bring your own radio, please contact ROC when you are on-site to get it programmed. We cannot make promises that we can provide config for all radios.
Also, please send an email or an irc-message NOW, telling us what type of radio you'll be bringing, so we can prepare the configuration for it.

If you have the knowledge to program the radio yourself, you can find the frequencies here: Please do contact Team ROC to notify you will be using a radio, and please follow our ID guidelines:


Using your 4-digit DECT-number as your Radio-ID would be preferred for MCH.
Using a HAM-Radio DMR ID if you can only have one ID in your radio (like in Motorola) is fine as well.

We Do

The goal of the ROC is providing radio-communication to Orga. We plan to provide

  • site-wide coverage through repeaters for the channels that need that.
  • provide radios for teams like Safety, Logistics, PL, Horeca, NOC and many others.

The radio-tech used will differ from 2017. Tech is DMR, known to many.

We Don't

  • Provide Amateur Radio materials.

Members of Team:ROC do however support & facilitate the setup of a HAM-Radio repeater. More info can be found on Projects:HAM Radio Repeater

The plan for 2022

We plan on using DMR-radios in 2022. These are most likely available from our German friends (tbd) and have many advantages.

It will also be easy, allowed and even applauded to use your own radios!

If you want to BYOD, then please let us know what device, so we can try to prepare codeplugs (configuration-files) for the most used types, in order to make the radio-network work optimal.

An Example of a radio that would work, and has a lot of features to play with after the event: "Anytone AT-D878UVII PLUS V3" Beware of the "PLUS" part.

Please get in touch!

We need to know:

  • How many Orga-provided radios you need during:
    • Build-up
    • Arrival
    • Event
    • Tear-Down
  • Do you need accessories?

It would also be good to know if you are bringing any radios of your own to work on the orga DMR-network, and which type so we can try to prepare configuration-files for those.

Follow-up questions will follow if you send us an email.
