D-Star VK4RDB-B and VK4RDB-G
This repeater runs a Pi-Star based node and a MMDVM modem. The repeater’s dashboard is here.
The repeater’s functionality is ‘soft’ and the current settings allow the use of D-Star and DMR as below:-
DMR (Digital Mobile Radio)
DMR Timeslot 1 is used for Brandmeister
There are no Brandmeister static talkgroups pre-allocated on the repeater.
DMR Timeslot 2 is used for VKFreeDMR
Talkgroup 505 is statically linked to the repeater. This means any network activity on TG505 will be transmitted by the repeater.
To select a different FreeDMR talk group, use Dial-a-Talkgroup on your radio.
APRS (Automatic Packet Reporting System)
Both Brandmeister and VKFreeDMR support digitally encoded APRS position information.
D-Star reflector 23C is the main Australian connector and is linked to by default (to be confirmed)
