Memo :: To the DMR-MARC Canadian DMR repeater owners|trustees

Memo :: To the DMR-MARC Canadian DMR repeater owners|trustees

Every Sunday Nights starting at 9:00 PM 2100 - 2200 (0200 - 0300 UTC standard time and 0100 - 0200 UTC when daylight time is in effect) we host a DMR Trans Canada Net on DMR-MARC Talk Group 302. Over the past few weeks we have experienced issues with activity on other talk groups hindering our Ham Radio Operators from passing traffic to and from the Net Controller.

We request your support in providing priority for Talk Group TG302 by allowing it to pre-empt all other talkgroups during the one-hour period of the DMR-MARC net. This will allow Ham Radio Operators to check in and pass traffic successfully.


The decision for whether/how to prioritize TG 302 is of course, up to each individual repeater owner/trustee.

DMR-MARC Talk Group 302 unique to Toronto Canada repeater VA3XPR trustee Don Trynor VA3XFT very effective DMR repeater configuration
Example : Talkgroup Specifications :: http://www.va3xpr.net/talkgroups/


Thank you for your continued support to the HAM Community.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or any of our Net Controllers.

DMR-MARC Canada Net setting for the mmdvm.ini file

DMR-MARC Canada Net setting for the mmdvm.ini file

Running MMDVM on raspberry pi3 with DVMEGA/bluestack via serial cable to the pi. I don't need the pi if I use bluedv but it is very unstable on the pc. Cell phone connection is not bad.

This is my mmdvm. ini file and contents is listed below (attached).

I am not sure how to put the Florida server in here for TG4580.

I highlighted (bold) the section where the servers can be enabled.

Can more than one server be enabled and how to switch between them, or just leave it on the Florida server for everything including non dmr+ for brandmeister?

Then again what is the name or url for the Florida server, I can't find any server lists anywhere.

Bluedv has it as a setting but just by name as USA-FLORIDA

Ok what I do is select Homebrew/MMDVM then hit switch to selected.

Scroll down to server . Click on the down button to see the list of servers. I suggest you use United States 102 and save

Then under Quick call scroll past all the brandmeister tg's till you get to Dmr plus
There you'll find 4580 tg.

DMR MARC network to be taken offline permanently in Germany

I regret the fact, that the DMR MARC network in Germany will be taken offline permanently on July 31st, 2017 according to the official website (german):

The German DMR MARC team will cease operation of the DMR-DL server as of July 31,  We would like to thank all the sysops and users of the network for the long-term trust.
  http://dmr.ag/dmr-marc-netz-in-dl-wird-abgeschaltet/
Das deutsche DMR MARC Team wird zum 31. Juli 2017 den Betrieb des DMR-DL Servers einstellen.   Wir danken allen Sysops und Nutzern des Netzes für das langjährige Vertrauen.

At this point time, we don't know about the availability of a permanent or temporary solution during the net (Saturdays 1600–1730 UTC DST / 1700–1830 UTC) for the access to WW 1 on DMR-MARC via crosslinks from other networks.

Stay tuned.

TYT Dual Band DMR Radios

TYT's long-awaited Dual Band DMR mobile radio is just about here.  My sample radios have arrived, and I am liking what I see so far.  The radio already holds more contacts than most, but an upgrade will be available soon also.  Also coming soon will be a new version of the firmware that allows you to import a codeplug from a previous TYT DMR radio (not sure yet if it will be the MD380 or the MD2017 codeplug, but it will be one of them).

Order today for an expected August 10 shipment.  Use the coupon code "GARMD9600" on the website to receive $60 off the $359 price, making the total $299 with a free programming cable, and free shipping.  You can download the software from the downloads tab now.
