Wayne,

I do suggest contacting the repeater keeper and at least asking if they will add 31654 to the allowable list.  I think they CAN add Brandmeister TGs to the repeater list, but it’s a question of whether or not they WANT to add them.  Also keep in mind that the TG lists are often different on the different types of systems.  For example, the Parrot function for testing audio I believe is 9999 on DMR-MARC (but don’t hold me to that!)

72,

Charles

Wayne,

Are you using the Code Plug Manager that came with the radio?  If so, here are the basics.

Make a copy of what is actually on the radio as a starting point and save it.  Anytone recommends this.

Then program in the following order:

  1. Go to the left menu, Digital and select Radio ID list.  Under Radio ID type in your DMR ID number.  Under Name type your call sign. Double click on a line to edit it.  If you have 1 ID and 1 call sign, you will only have 1 entry.
  2. Go to the next menu item under Digital and select Talk Groups.  Double click the first line.  Under Name, type 4-State QRP,  Type: select Group Call, TG/DMR ID: 31654, then click OK.
  3. Go to the top of the list and select Public.  Then select Channel.  Double click the first line or any line you would like to use.  Name: 4-State QRP.  Receive/Transmit frequency depend on whether you are using a hotspot or repeater.  I recommend setting your hotspot to 434.0000.  So if hotspot 434.0000 for both or the repeater pair. Channel Type: D-Digital. Transmit power: Low for hotspot, High or Turbo for repeater.  Bandwidth: 12.5K, TX permit: Always. Scan list: None, then to the right, click on the bar for Contact and select 4-State QRP, Radio ID: select your callsign, Color Code: Depends on the repeater or on the one you selected for your hotspot. I usually leave Color Code 1 for my hotspot and use that on the radio as well, Slot: Depends on repeater owner’s preference. If using a Zumspot it will be Slot2.  Receive group list: doesn’t matter.  Leave Digital Encryption: Off, and Encryption Type: Normal Encryption.   Everything below this point is left unchecked or left alone.  Click “OK”
  4. Go to the next Menu Item Zone.  Double click the first line or any line.  Zone Name: Hotspot or Local Repeater.  Select from the Available Channels on the left 4-State QRP and then click the arrow in the middle of the columns to select and move that to the right.  Click “OK”

You are now ready to upload to the radio.   Select the menu option at the top, Program: Write to radio.  Once that is done, you should have a radio that can access the 4 State QRP Talkgroup.

Notes:  
  • Even if your drivers are installed you probably have to Set menu option and select the port.  The program uses a virtual com port that does not stay in the program memory.
  • When you add other talk groups, you use exactly the same procedure
  • To see what your radio is doing/how it is working, use TG 9990 Brandmeister Parrot.  Use PRIVATE CALL when setting up the Digital Contact
  • To talk to a particular individual by DMR ID it is also a PRIVATE CALL
  • Suggested TGs: 91 Worldwide,  310 TAC 310, 311 TAC 311, 31075 Baynet (Hamradio Workbench), 4640 to 4649 Corresponds to US call areas 4640 = Call Area 0 and 4649 = Call Area 9, etc., 3120 Kansas Statewide.
  • If you are using a local repeater, be sure it is Brandmeister.  DMR-Marc and other C-bridge systems WILL NOT WORK to access Brandmeister, the only open source system.

When you have this done and the radio is operational, then let me know and I will send instruction on loading the User Database.  The 868/878 will hold the entire world-wide user database, at least so far.

Let me know if you have any questions.

They can mapped between BM and C-Bridged repeaters. Also both show 9990 as a parrot, but C-bridges are group calls and BM is a private call.

Re: DMR Net

Charles W. Powell
 

Check to see if your radio is in promiscuous mode.  If it is, it will hear anything that comes through.  Or at least that’s my guess on this.  Hotspot or repeater?  If it’s a hotspot, try dropping the static connection to 31654 before listening elsewhere.  Also I have seen this problem with Brandmeister Server 3108.  It does some weird things at times.

The above is from a previous message.  I DO use a hotspot, but how do I drop the static connection?

I have long wanted to do qrp on Field Day, but no locals seem interested.

I'm not local, but my club (wb1gof.org) does field day every year, the
past N years as 3A (cw/ssb/digital, plus vhf and gota). The last few
years have been with 100W stations, mostly operated via honda EU2000.

But, a few years ago (2012?), we operated at 5W only, on lead acid
batteries (starting full), with solar panels. All the rigs were K2, and
it was very quiet without the motors running. We still had all the
antennas, including 2-el wire beams on 40 and 20/15/10 pointing west (EMA).

Overall, the score obtained was similar QRP vs not, and we made about
half the contacts as QRP. For operators and guest operators who aren't
specifically into QRP, it seems more contacts is more fun.

So I would definitely encourage you to do this. Even two people can be
a fun time; I once ran a 1B station solo in the same place as somebody
else doing that - that's like a 2-person FD except we had separate
logs/scores/calls.

Guys,

Go for it!  The South Plainfield Amateur Radio Club (NJ2SP) here in NJ was founded in April 2014 and that didn't leave much time for Field Day planning. So I suggested we go QRP - just a few wires in the trees in the local park, and operate off batteries. The club agreed and we did a 2A Battery effort that year and came in 3rd pace nationwide in our category!

I thought that once that was over the other guys in the club would want to go QRO for 2015. They didn't! They had such a good time, that we've been QRP for Field Day ever since and we place decently every year.

Admittedly, the SSB guys have a bit tougher time, but we added a beam to our antenna arsenal for them - so they make their fair share of QSOs, too.  I know you'll have a blast if you decide to do this.

Hi Charles and group,

I would like to invite you to use our XLX reflector here on the Nature Coast,
for your meetings. If you need a good reliable reflector for DMR. We were tired of the problems with the traditional TG Talk Groups and built our own using XLX software.

The XLX352 reflector can be used for D-Star or DMR.  DMR defaults to Module D,
D-Star is used for A,B,C modules. The setup is a little different, but not complicated.
If you would like to know more about the setup for your radio let me know.
The dashboard is at XLX352.ddns.net. Talk to you soon.

Re: DMR Net

There are several ways to do this.  One is to obtain a login to the Brandmeister network under your call and click on your hotspot from the menu column (usually the last on the left side).  Then you can manage static connections.  Second is, if you are using Pi-Star to install the Brandmeister API. Then you can control this from your hotspot dashboard. The Brandmeister API can be added to other hotspots as well, but I am not familiar with anything other than Pi-Star.  I think there is way to do this from the radio, but someone who knows more than me will have to elaborate.  The advantage of the API is that all your connections, both static and dynamic, show up on the Pi-Star dashboard.

I will be adding some links on installing the Brandmeister API to my 4-State DMR document.

The St. Louis QRP Society has been doing Field Day for years -- all battery power (and a little solar too!). We have a lot of fun.

Our 2017 outing was written up in the ARRL MW Division Newsletter: http://www.arrlmidwest.org/pdfs/arlmwd-aug2017news.pdf

And here's a little info about FD2018: https://www.slqs.net/another-great-fd-for-slqs/

You can see photos of our past outings here: http://photos.slqs.net

If you're in the St. Louis area, we'd love to have you join us this year.

Maybe we should have a "4 States QRP FD Site Locator" on the 4SQRP web page...?
