It is with great pride that I announce the Ventura County Digital Radio Club (VCDRC) BrandMeister TalkGroup.
Today, talk group 31070 went live on all 5 of the Ventura County DMR Repeaters, on TimeSlot 2, the Sierra Nevada Amateur Radio Society (SNARS) c-Bridge, and of course the world-wide BrandMeister Network.
The plan is for “VenCo” (#310652) to return to being just a local repeater channel for Sulphur Mtn, just as #310701 is for South Mtn, and #310721 is for Red Mtn.
More on this Thursday night during the net, but for tonight… please share my joy.
To support all of the recent changes to the DMR configuration in Ventura County, as well as the addition of NorCal and SoCal talkgroups, Version 2.0 of the MD-380 codeplug has been released and is available for download now. We are also adding a special zone for DVMega HotSpot users. It uses 435.100 MHz (simplex) on TS-2 with ColorCode #1 to do its magic.
Next update to be released late in September will include more callsigns and another added feature that is currently being tested.
Last night, the DCI/DMRX TAC-310, TAC-311, and TAC-312 talk groups were hooked into the BrandMeister Network.
This is great news for the friends and family that were left behind on the DMR MARC Network by the switch to BrandMeister. The same ol Push-to-Talk “TAC-310” is now the new and shiny BrandMeister TG-310 (Dynamic).
**Along with this change came 311 and 312 for expansion.
Please test out this connection and let me know if/how it works. Program your radio to use these as TimeSlot #1 !!!
