October 2014 update

A few noteworthy things have happened this month. 

  • First to mention is that Bill Atkinson, NF9K, has joined the Indiana DMR family with the addition of an XPR8400 with a temporary home at his QTH near Eagle Creek reservoir. The info for his machine is as follows: 
441.025+, Color Code 1
Time Slot #1 - Group Call 1 = World Wide (PTT activated with 5 min inactivity timeout)
Time Slot #1 - Group Call 13= WW English
Time Slot #1 - Group Call 3 = N. AmericaTime Slot #1 - Group Call 310 = TAC-310
Time Slot #1 - Group Call 9999 = Audio Test (PTT Activated - 2 min inactivity timeout)

Time Slot #2- Group Call 3169 = Midwest Regional 
Time Slot #2 - Group Call 3118 = Indiana Statewide
Time Slot #2 - Group Call 2 = Local

  • Secondly, Steve, N9KYB, has turned the Frankfort repeater into a master, with Galveston and Indianapolis becoming it peers, thus making Local TG2 now only simulcasting to that "node" or zone. This will allow for local rag chewing without tying up the entire network as it has in the past. 

  • Lastly, Randy WB9VLE, has decided to eliminate the use of TG719, Eastern Indiana, as the local talkgroup and to migrate that traffic over to Local TG2 on his master and its peers. 

Please remember that TG3118 Indiana is still connected to all repeaters in the state on TS2 and still allows everyone to be able to talk to one another!
