Quick Networking Information

This page is a catch-all, quick entry page to help you connect your repeater onto DCI ASAP!

  • Programming recommendations for Repeater and client Radios:  programming.html  We strongly encourage our repeaters as well as the user radios to follow these settings.

  • Use the networking info (sample below) provided to you via Email.

  • Talkgroup possibilities:  talkgroup.trbo.org  Typically, the active TG's at a minimum are: Audio Test 2, Bridge 2, Comm 1 & 2, DCI 1 & 2, Local Net 2, North America 2, Parrot 1,TAC 310-2 and Worldwide 2.

  • Some talkgroups are full time TG's while others are PTT.   Additional talkgroups can ultimately be added to your manager or your repeater can change to another IPSC network. 

  • Most repeaters, especially those who have come aboard without any prior relationship with DCI will start out on our Open IPSC network.

  • To see yourself on the DCI network, netwatch.trbo.org and key up and look for activity in the current talker or log.  If you see the activity, you know you are on the IPSC network and everything is likely working well at this point.

  • To hear yourself, use the talkgroup: Parrot 1 (Echo Server)

  • Or to test for levels, try the VU meter via NorCal's streaming server

NO7RF hangs out on DCI 1, so check in when you get aboard as he tries to be available for new repeaters coming aboard.

If you are really bored or inquisitive, try the sitemap alpha sort and spend a few hours looking at topics of interest.

The networking information shown below will be sent to you via Email.  But this is what is generally passed along when you join your repeater to a DCI IPSC network:

Master IP:  198.xxx.xxx.xxx

Master UDP Port:  xxxxx

Auth Key:  xxx

DCI IPSC network name: to be determined

If you have any questions, please contact: dci@trbo.org
