GB7RR Information

Following on from the installation and live operation of GB7RR the FIRST Hytera repeater in the UK on the DMRplus Hytera network on the 14th February 2015. Today saw another FIRST in the UK for GB7RR with the addition of a DMR / D-Star bridge between the GB7RR repeater and the UK DCS005 Reflector Module F.  This now means DMR and D-Star users can communicate with each other using the bridge in both directions i.e. DMR To D-Star & D-Star To DMR. The number translation takes place within the bridge, for further information on the BrandMeister network including how you could link your Motorola repeater to this developing network please contact us here gb7rr@gb7rr.co.uk.

After moving the repeater to it's new site it was decided by the GB7RR team to discontinue the D-Star to DMR Bridge that we had running on GB7RR.  After we first initiated this gateway it was done as an experimental task as well as trying to encourage amateur traffic on the network, this seemed to work well as the first and only bridge on the system at the time. GB7FC was chomping at the bit to start a bridge through the Blackpool repeater which eventually they did with the help of Jon G4TSN.  With two Bridges running together the system started to fall over with bad audio and connectivity problems.  It was then decided not to continue when we moved GB7RR as Dave M0AUT keeper of GB7FC expressed that he would like to continue the bridge which was good news as the system would still have the bridge for amateurs to use, you will find it on DCS005 F from D-Star.

In December 2015 the network was changed to the BrandMeister network to enhance the infrastructure.

May2016 - Simplified talkgroups policy introduced to avoid confusion and network congestion.  DStar bridge has now been disconnected.
