Hmmm . . . 
After all that is set up, and you have gained access through the repeater, and the correct channel code, and color code, and time slot, now you're down the correct hallway, select the correct chatroom door, you must know the correct door knock, password, and secret handshake!!
Phhht!

Hi Jim,

Color Codes and Time Slots are set by the repeater or hotspot owner, so we need a little more information: 

Are you trying to get in via a personal hotspot, or through a local repeater? 

The ZumSpot hotspots running Pi-Star are set to use Color Code 1, Timeslot 2 by default. Most people don't change that.

For repeaters, it depends on how the repeater owner set it up.

It's really not so bad. But like anything else in amateur radio, there's something new to learn if you want to give it a try.

It helps to have a friend get you started. If a buddy helps you set your new radio up, then talking with the rest of the 4-States gang is as easy as turning a knob to Channel 1, hitting the push-to-talk button, and saying hello.

From there you can start learning about the required pieces of information you need to make your radio do what you want. Again, there's just a few pieces of info, depending on whether you are using your own hotspot, or someone else's repeater.

In either case, you need to know:

- Frequency
- Color Code
- Time Slot
- Talk Group

No 'secret handshake' required :-)

I just got my DMR radio going and hope to began to participate starting this coming Wed.

I found what I needed to know about the DMR group/net on groups.io, but I thought we might want to make it easier for others, or at least to let others know it exists.

Many of us tried to get in a few times. I don't know if this is on Berts side or just the talk group server lagging out. Lots of loss and ber rates in the red. I have been listening on both the rig and the dash from BM and lots of lost in translation has been going on for a few weeks now.

 I hope the net continues to grow but the amount of loss is pretty rough.

Re: DMR Net

David,

How are you connecting?

Generally I thought things sounded pretty good. Here's a screen shot from my hotspot. (Oddly enough, my BER here is higher than usual. I'm using a different setup than I do at home...)

N0̷YJ has a bit of a challenge with his satellite internet, but although it stutters a bit I find him still copyable.

Listening to others discuss the Brandmeiser server they are connecting to with their hotspot; perhaps you might try another? I use 3102 at present; IIRC I tested the servers and picked the one with the shortest latency.

Re: DMR Net

 

I will have to look into a change I guess. I heard quite a few others check in and not get picked up. I have used DMR for about a year now and this has been the most delayed TG to date, no blame of course as it could just be how I am getting in. I have been using the BM listening feature to hear from both the internet and my hotspot to try and make it 100% copy and still lose some of it.

Running :

ZumSpot

Anytone AT-D868UV

With a solid 100Mb line to the net.

BM Master 3108 (I just switched to 3102)

Hope to make it in next week and still enjoyed listening.

Re: DMR NET

Charles W. Powell
 

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.

72,

Charles - NK8O
