Nu de ontwikkeling van DMR+ lijkt te zijn stopgezet en er alleen nog gereageerd wordt op bugs in het systeem is de DMR wereld zich aan het beraden. Uit onderstaande post blijkt van DMRX Experimentation and Discovery haar achterban aan het informeren is over BrandMeister.
It has been a struggle for the past year, trying to get the Germans onboard with us here on the State side. We’ve been unable to have any input with the software. Nothing has been open source.
My personal opinion, is we move to the Brandmeister network, since it’s already built and there are many benefits to the new system.
Benefits of Brandmeister:
Allows the use of Motorola, Hytera, and Homebrew DMR systems on a single
Allows the use of a DV4Minis and other Dongles to access ANY talkgroup,
not just reflectors.
Allows communication with DStar reflectors.
Allows for custom applications to query weather, user information, etc
Allows private calls across the entire network.
Allows SMS across the entire network.
Allows template based configuration of static talk groups.
Allows dynamic (PTT) access to all talk groups across the network.
Support for location based services for Motorola and Hytera radios with
Less network activity, meaning less repeaters until people learn of it,
test it, and make the decision to move to it. Many of us use our local
talk groups primarily so I don’t consider this a huge loss.
Here are the links to setup the system. It’s very easy.

the repeater ID
Motorola Configuration Example:
*** Use a blank password and 188.8.131.52 in the Master IP field ***

*** PLEASE NOTE, ALL REPEATERS MUST CONNECT TO THE NEW SYSTEM, YOU CAN NO LONGER SLAVE YOUR REPEATERS ***
Let me know what questions you have and how I can help! (N5QM)
