In order to prevent time slot hijacking we are asking those of you to make modifications to the following talk groups time slot allocation: NorCal 31068 NorCal 1 31069 SoCal 31066 SoCal1 31067. Kindly change the time slot from TS 2 to TS 1. Also those of you utilizing reflectors kindly make you reflector TS be that of TS 1 as well. WE have had several occurrences where someone is having a conversation on Mtn West and their QSO was hijacked.
Mountain West DMR has moved its operations to Master 3102 for the purpose of stability
Because Mountain West DMR is affiliated with Brandmeister, you have the power to use any talk group you want to program into your radios. I say this with one subtle suggestion which is if it is not a talk group that is in the list of published talk groups; that you kindly place it on time slot 1 as to not interfere with the local traffic that is being utilized on time slot 2.
Further more any talk group that is not set to active always will be treated as a push to talk or user activated talk group meaning it will remain active so long as there is activity emanating from that talk group on the repeater it was made active. It is important to note that with User activated talk groups if 15 min elapses with no activity, that talk group will go back to non active until the next time it is activated on the said repeater.
Also because we are part of the Brandmeister network of DMR repeaters, you as a user have the ability to harness reflectors. Reflectors act like a talk group however you must have a activation TG of the reflector # on the TS you are using. To all on the reflector, you must then put your radio on TG 9 on the TS you activated the reflector and you can utilize that reflector just like a TG. Reflectors are more widely utilized in Europe then here in North America. Another use of a reflector is to bridge dissimilar networks such as System Fusion, D-Star, P25, and 20K0F3E (Analog)
You have the flexibility to use any talk group that is available on the Brandmeister network on any repeater anywhere. This is the true power of DMR or DMR 2.0
Go forth and enjoy the system as it was built with you in mind!!
