The DVC working group recommends the following settings for operating in the BrandMeister network in Luxembourg:
You should create a BrandMeister network account, for adjusting personal settings. Adjust the following settings in Selfcare:
- APRS SSID 5
- Select an icon.
- Select your radio brand (transcoding of messages).
- Put some descriptive text in the APRS text field, for example your first name.
The following static talkgroups are present on LARU repeaters (these talkgroups are present permanently):
|Timeslot 1 (TS1)||Timeslot 2 (TS2)|
|TG 270||Luxembourg||TG 9||local|
|TG 2707||LX LARU||TG 27077|
|TG 2709112||LX EMCOMM||TG 27079||LX LARU EMCOMM|
Talkgroups for emergency traffic (EMCOMM) shall only be used for official emrgency traffic. Depending of t he location of the repeater, further talkgroups exist on timselot 1 (TS1) of the repeater:
|Timeslot 1 (TS1)||Repeater|
|TG 27071||LX LARU North||LX0BER, LX0NSR|
|TG 27072||LX LARU Center||LX0DMR, LX0FSK, LX0LARO, LX0LWL|
|TG 27073||LX LARU South||LX0DMX|
Dynamic talkgroups can be activated on both timeslots in the BrandMeister network. This makes it possible to activate all existing talkgroups temporarily on a certain timeslot (e.g TG 262, Germany). Existing talkgroups can be looked up here.
|Activating a dynamic talkgroup:||Group call in the desired talkgroup.|
|Unlinking a dynamic talkgroup:||Private call to the ID 4000
Activated talkgrups will be automatically unlinked after 15 miutes of inactivity.
The LARU recommends:
- Timeslot 1 (TS 1) for national QSO's with the static talkgroups on a given repeater (TG 270, TG270x and TG 9).
- Timeslot 2 (TS 2) for national and international QSO's with dynamic talkgroups (and TG 9).
Dynamic talkgroups should be activated preferentially on timeslot 2 (TS 2). Please don't activate dynamic talkgroups systematically on timesolt 1 (TS 1)!
Reflectors exist on timeslot 2 (TS 2). These are present for backwards compatibility with other networks. A permanent reflector should not be linked on timeslot 2 (TS 2)
