I have a new and exciting feature to announce. Jonathan, G4KLX has written a new piece of software that allows the connection of more than one DMR network at once, so as of today, FR is connected to Brandmeister, DMR+ (and by extension Phoenix) and XLX. Note, this is still experimental so some of these options might change. Feedback appreciated.
- TG23510 – South East
- TG 9 – Regional link – FR, PK, BH
- TG 8 – XLX reflectors
- TG 9 – Brandmeister reflectors – default 4400
- TG 8 – DMR+ reflectors – linked to Phoenix
XLX implements 26 lettered reflectors, A-Z. These can be connected by making a private call to IDs 4001-4026 on slot 1. I am told most DMR activity is on 4005. These reflectors are cross-mode, so you can speak to others on D-Star, YSF etc. To disconnect, use 4000. To get status, use 5000. This is basically the same as BM/DMR+ reflectors.
A list of XLX reflectors is here:
Using BrandMeister reflectors:
This works exactly as before, so you can continue to use the system as you already do.
Using DMR+ reflectors
All DMR+ reflector activity will be transmitted on TG8. To connect, you prefix all commands with an 8. (Similar to using a phone in an office; dial 8 DMR+ “line”!)
So, for example, a private all to 84400 connects you to DMR+ reflector 4400 / Phoenix TG 235 UK Wide.
