USE OF 4400/TG235 ON DMR

As the NoV holder of a multimode public gateway I'd like to ensure that DMR users of reflector 4400 or TG235 on DMR are aware of the impact this has on the ability to offer a multi mode service. My gateway like many others are by default linked to DMR reflector 4400 as this is the UK wide DMR calling channel. When someone is using DMR 4400/TG235 my gateway and most other multimode repeaters and gateways are locked in to DMR mode as they can only offer one mode at a time. This means that C4FM, DStar, P25 or analog users cannot access the gateway or repeater. So please consider this if you choose to have an extended chat on 4400/TG235. Not only does this tie up the nationwide DMR calling channel across dozens of DMR repeaters but it also locks out users of other modes, that you will not be aware of, from dozens of multimode gateways and repeaters across the country. /G0NEF

MB6IBK OPERATIONAL

DMR Gateway MB6IBK is now operational in Bracknell, Berkshire. The frequency is 434.4875, colour code 3, slot 2, 1w ERP. The gateway is connected to both the DMR+ and Brandmeister networks via the gateway built into the Pi-Star software used to run the node. The default connection is to DMR reflector 4400 which is the Brandmeister UK wide call channel but most Brandmeister and DMR+ reflectors should be accessible. To connect to a new reflector you must send a PRIVATE CALL to the reflector you want. For Brandmeister use the regular reflector number, so for Reflector 4400,use 4400. Brandmeister reflectors are returned to the Gateway on Talk Group 9. So you need to have TG9 in your recieve talk groups list. For DMR+ add a "8" infront of the reflector number. So for 4400 on DMR+ use 84400. DMR+ connections will come back to the gateway as Talk Group 8, so ensure you have TG8 in your receive group list for each channel. /G0NEF
