We have created a special c-Bridge
manager (soon with hotSpot support) that has all of the PNW
talkgroups available full time plus
many more from DMR-MARC and
Brandmeister. This manager is
likely best used with radios that
have 2 timeslot digital monitor or
promiscuous mode capability. It is
to be used to monitor 57 talkgroups
from many different DMR groups.
Hold-off timers for
Washington 1 and PNW Regional 2 are
supported if one wishes to TX on
MARC & BM
PNW 1 and 2
TAC 1-3, 8
Comm 1 and 2
DCI 1 and 2
Idaho ARES (bm)
Always on /
via MCT Off
There are only 2 hold-off timers,
Washington 1 and PNW Regional 2 on 3
minute hold-offs. So you may
talk on those 2 talkgroups and all
the other talkgroups will be
held-off for 3 minutes.
Talking on any other talkgroups will
likely get your conversation
MCT's are also in place though
programmed a bit differently.
By default, all talkgroups are on
full time, but MCT off will turn off
all but the native PNW talkgroups.
All MARC and BM talkgroups (except
our statewides; ID, OR, WA).
MCT On will turn all talkgroups back
on. The standard 55/15 minute
cycles apply here.
You only need to create one channel
for your radio to match either your
hotSpot or repeater. Select
that channel, turn on digital
monitor and listen away. We
suggest that you also create
channels for Washington 1, PNW
MCT On and MCT off.
channel list has been added above. As
this is primarily a listening
manager, you should enter all the
talkgroups into your radio (D868
TG Import File; csv for
members only) if your radio supports
their display and you desire know
which TG is active.
We will soon add an MMDVM server to
this manager. That
server coupled with digital monitor or
promiscuous mode, will make for a
very useful hotSpot demonstration mode for
club meetings, symposiums, hamfests
etc. Great for the non-stop
solo drive across the USA to keep
you awake. If anyone thinks
DMR is too quiet, put a hotSpot on
this MM and get a taste of how much
traffic is out there and why our
part time talkgroups are so common
on PNW DMR.
If you are a PNW DMR member and you
wish to put your own MotoTRBO
repeater on the manager, please write to us as
the credentials are provided after
we know what you have and wish to
do. The MMDVM server
credentials will be published in the
Wiki on IO Groups.
