Thanks for checking out our Catawba Valley DMR Group page! For those not aware, the Catawba Valley is located in central North Carolina in the Piedmont Region. Closest cities included in our local area are: Hickory, Lincolnton, Gastonia, Huntersville, Charlotte, Morganton, Statesville, Mooresville, Maiden, Conover, Newton, Shelby, Kings Mountain, Belmont, and quite a few others. We are located at Talkgroup #31678 and we are a group of Public Safety professionals, including Firefighters, EMT's, Security, etc. However we want to encourage anybody to feel free and chat on our Talkgroup if you'd like to, after all that's why we listed it on the list. Feel free to say hello to any of us, we might even be your neighbors, and we're a friendly bunch of guys (and girls) that started out using GMRS channels & graduated to Ham channels (some of us are Technician level and some are General level).
