New system has a different talkgroup layout, taking a 'consumed airtime' approach.

--TG 312 TAC312, PTT 2 minute timeout (turns off 3155 for 5 minutes)
--TG 3155 WI Statewide, always on (shut off by TAC311/312 for 5 minutes)

DV4mini hotspot connections are now available to the Local 9 talkgroup!

Connect to DMR+ Master KC9UHI-1, reflector 4753

For those using MMDVM/OpenSpot, server address is link.kc9uhi.net

Feedback of successful connections is appreciated, as I only have a dv4mini currently.

TAC310-312 Now Available

Post by kc9uhi » Sat Nov 11, 2017 9:41 pm

TAC310, TAC311, TAC312 are now available on-demand, with a 5 minute local inactivity timer.

These are commonly used world-wide talkgroups for holding a QSO between two or more repeaters, to minimize network usage and allow for more people to use the repeater systems. A QSO on TG3100 will key-up several hundred repeaters. TG3155 will do about a dozen. In most situations, a user has to 'request' TAC310-312 traffic from the repeater by keying briefly. They will then receive traffic on that talkgroup for a set amount of time. This reduces network resource utilization by only activating the couple repeaters that the users are actually using to hold their QSO.

Due to the sometimes high inbound elsewhere traffic on WI-3155 (TS2), local use of TAC311/TAC312 will turn off WI-3155 for 5 minutes to allow for QSO. Any local usage of WI-3155 will re-enable it.

TAC310 is on TS1, usage should fit in well with current patterns.

Addition Summary:
-TImeslot 1
--TG 310 TAC310, PTT 5 minute timeout
-TImeslot 2
--TG 311 TAC311, PTT 5 minute timeout (turns off 3155 for 5 minutes)
--TG 312 TAC312, PTT 5 minute timeout (turns off 3155 for 5 minutes)

Updated Talkgroup Timeouts

Post by kc9uhi » Tue Nov 14, 2017 10:08 am

Timeouts of the User-Activated talkgroups have been adjusted.

TAC310-312 will now go for 5 minutes.
3100 goes for 10 minutes.

Any local user transmit activity on the talkgroup will reset the timer.
