BrandMeister settings for LX

Posted in DMR

The DVC working group recommends the following settings for operating in the BrandMeister network  in Luxembourg:

Selfcare:

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.

Talkgroups:

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 27079 LX LARU EMCOMM
TG 2709112 LX EMCOMM  
TG 9112
Emcom EU  
TG 9 local Reflectors

Talkgroups for emergency traffic (EMCOMM) shall only be used for official emrgency traffic. 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. Aktivated 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

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)
