MichiganONE DMR Net for 8/12/2019

Net Summary

Stations Checked In: 20
Net Closed: 9:12 PM

The net today saw 20 stations checking in, on this "our lawns need the rain" edition of the net. We had 2 new stations join us this evening; WD8CRQ and KZ4FOX. Welcome to the net everyone, we hope to hear you back soon and often.

Net regular Paul K8PD mentioned there was a recent update to the Anytone D868UV firmware, which had some bug fixes plus expands the digital contact list to 200k contacts. With the DMR database growing every day, this is a welcome update so that these radios can accommodate the whole list - at least for now. Thanks for the tip Paul, we appreciate it!

Great net this evening, lots of stations checking in and great conversation. Thank you to everyone who did check in - it's YOU who makes this net a worthwhile Monday evening activity.

MichiganONE DMR Net for 8/5/2019

Net Summary

Stations Checked In: 12
Net Closed: 8:57 PM

The net today saw 12 stations checking in, on this "first net of August" edition of the net. We had 2 new stations join us for the net this evening; KE8FJW and KU8L. Welcome to the net everyone, we hope to hear you back soon and often.

BrandMeister was really struggling this evening, with many stations experiencing packet loss and the inability to communicate. The Iowa net has also reported issues over the last few weeks during their statewide nets, so it sounds like BrandMeister has some work to do in shoring up their network.

Jay WB8TKL outlined some of the fantastic repeater maintenance work done by a crew of amateurs over in the Ann Arbor area, including some improvements to the DMR repeater serving Ann Arbor and surrounding area. Fine work Jay and Team, thank you for your time and efforts in DMR and the hobby at large - it's appreciated.

Announcements
  • I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable 4th of July holiday.
  • BrandMeister USA has reinstated TAC310 as of this morning. Please remember this is not a calling TG and parking yourself on there will earn you a 24 hour ban from the network.
  • HAMRADIO 2.0 is doing a live DMR Q&A this Wednesday on his YouTube Channel. If you have questions about DMR, it's probably a good place to get a answer.
  • KM8CC repeater in Kalamazoo has changed frequencies to 443.400 / 448.400 - it's also moved to a slightly higher tower south of downtown.
