DMR Net Talkgroups

Two new talkgroups have been created by the Brandmeister USA team for the purpose of running nets.  If you want to run a DMR net, you now have a place to do it.
Net 1 31001
Net 2 31002


Colorado Fun Network expands to digital

FWD:

We’re working with a couple new repeaters which support many digital modes including P25.  I mention P25 because it’s bridged over to analog using talkgroup 10209 along with the DMR bridge to analog using talkgroup 310815.  One of the repeaters is at our Mt Pueblo site and the other is on Fremont Peak.  The Mt Pueblo machine is on 449.950- which requires Color Code 15 for DMR and both time slots are linked to Brandmeister.  The DStar mode is enabled along with P25 using a NAC of 293.  The same is true for the Fremont machine which runs on 449.500-

Doug, KV8TD, the organizer of the event. He said that we're attempting to have the event set up at the Hotshots' store at Gateway Mall, but nothing has been 'set in stone' yet.

Our 'alternate' location is the Yavapai Jeep Posse Building on Commerce Dr., near Pioneer Park (just behind the skating rink).

Pi Star v3.4.14 Release Notes

20-May-2018 - 3.4.14 (Update Only).

Just released 3.4.14, this update brings DMR2YSF, this is quite a complex cross-mode, since on Pi-Star it requires the use of DMRGateway.

The path looks like this:

<DMR RF Radio> - <MMDVMHost> - <DMRGateway> - <DMR2YSF> - <YSF Gateway> - <YSF Reflector>

Why did I take the most complex route, because by doing so I bring you guys all of the options, this way you get the option to use your DMR Radio on NXDN (and maybe P25, but I have not tested that), via the YSFGateway, and by keeping DMRGateway 
in-line, you can still cover your usual use of BM/DMR+ and XLX too....

Change Pi-Star Banner Color:

https://www.toshen.com/ke0fhs/pi-star-notes.htm#csstool

Goto: CSS Tool under Expert
Change Background Banner to: 3877dd
Factory reset only resets the colors to stock if.

2 additional new features: 

Update & Upgrade are embeded within expert tab = no more SSH access for future updates. 

Complicated - yes it is, but it should be fun / interesting, or what would the point be....
