Welcome to the MNTRBO DMR Plus linking system

REPEATERS

If you have a repeater and would like to link, contact N0VZC.

You can look me up on QRZ.

The Talkgroup layout is set for my repeaters.  If you want to link a repeater and have different static set of talkgroups, I can set that up for you.

The DMR Plus IPSC2 Server supports Motorola, Hytera, and MMDVM (HomeBrew) repeaters.

I can connect the server to XLX and YSF Reflectors and bridge them to a talkgroup of your choice.

If you would like a talkgroup linked to my server, let me know.  I will try to get it for you.

I run a low coverage MMDVM repeater in St. Bonifacius on 444.725 CC2

 

 

HOTSPOTS

If you have a hotspot, you can connect it to the DMR+ Network.

All you have to do is set your hotspot to DMRplus mode and connect to one of the servers that is closest to your location.  I run 3 Minnesota servers.

The Old servers are called USA-Minnesota and USA-Minnesota2 and the new server is called IPSC2-Minnesota.

The old server only supports Reflector usage and the new server supports talkgroups.

The Minnesota State Group is on Talkgroup 3127 or reflector 4605.

Please Use the New Server.  The old Servers are no longer supported or updated and will shutdown at the end of 2018.

NOTE: The DMR-MASTER USA-Minnesota has been changed over to the IPSC2 Server. 

 

For MMDVM and RF Shark users

(This will only work with the IPSC2 Server)

If you want to add static talkgroups you will need to add the following to the options section

Note: This is a sample, you will need to customize it to your needs

Ref=4000;RelinkTime=15;UserLink=1;TS1_1=3127;TS2_1=2;TS2_2=3169;TS2_3=1000;

This would  give the the following static talkgroups from my server:

3127 from time slot 1

2 from time slot 2

3169 from time slot 2

1000 from time slot 2

For RF shark users, you will want to make this line for the Raw Options section.  Do not add the talkgroups to the "STATIC TG #" section. 

This will only pull from Time Slot 1 and if you wanted talkgroups from time slot 2 it would not get them.
