BrandMeister Canada's 3026 Net

Mark it in your calendar, folks! The BrandMeister Canada's 3026 Net is held every Tuesday at UTC (1:00) and is available to HAM via DMR BrandMeister repeaters and Hotspots in Canada and globally. With over 680 DMR Industrial Repeaters worldwide, this net is going to be one of the busiest nets available for Canada HAMs on BrandMeister, with typical weekly check-ins of many stations (first net).

Anyone interested in accessing the net can do so by tuning into to BrandMeister digital DMR repeater or hotspot via Talkgroup 3026



We understand DMR-MARC has a Canada Net on Talkgroup 3026 weekly Sunday Nights.

The important fact here is we understand the two networks and TalkGroup 302 are not connected.

Tell me about the following DMR networks

Digital Mobile Radio, DMR, is a new standard that has been developed by ETSI defining digital standard for PMR. PMR, an acronym for Professional, Personal, or Private mobile radio is recognised as the term covering radio communications other than mobile telephones.

(DMR aka Digital Mobile Radio)

BrandMeister -
On the BrandMeister network static talkgroups are configured by repeater operators. These talkgroups are similar to always-­on talkgroups. They will always transmit when there is traffic.
These are the only talkgroups that must be configured by repeater operators.

Dynamic talkgroups are just that. When a user keys up on a dynamic talkgroup the
BrandMeister system creates a subscription for that talkgroup on that repeater. Then, for 15
minutes, the system will send audio for that talkgroup to the repeater. 15 minutes after the last
transmission on a given repeater, that talkgroup will be dropped from the repeater.
Users have the ability to key up on any talkgroup and use it.  15 minutes later the
connection would drop. Interestingly, the timeslot is not important. The network will route the
audio to the repeater and transmit on the same timeslot. It is recommended that timeslot 1 be used for wide area conversations leaving timeslot 2 available to local communications

On the C­Bridge network each repeater is configured with a set of talkgroups. There are
“always­-on” and “user activated” (or push-­to­-talk) groups. These are configured at the C­Bridge
and cannot be modified by users from their radios.  c-Bridge is an IP-based platform by Rayfield Communications for enhancing the functionality of Motorola MOTOTRBO digital communications systems.
