Information on Tagalog Non English TG 5150-5159 51569 and 310726
As the result of few until further notice all Fillipino ( Tagloog) Talk groups have been blocked across all Mountain West Repeaters on all Time Slots. This is the result of users in our area failing to conform to the standard. The standard I am referring to is any talk group that is not pat of our published line up under the repeaters section of this website need to go on Time slot 1. Furthermore we no longer support the use of pseudo trunking as this steals the time slot away in the event the TS they are using is busy their radio flips them to the unused time slot. Typically this is a HYTERA supported mode however we do not support this method of communication.

Important Programing and Time Slot utilization requirements for use on all repeater that are part of the Mountain West DMR Network. This is not a suggestion but a requirement.

In order to prevent time slot hijacking, our requirement for those of you that make modifications to the following talk groups time slot allocation; and or add other talk groups they are required to be on TS 1 no exceptions. Examples of TS 1 TG are as follows: NorCal 31068 NorCal 1 31069 SoCal 31066 SoCal1 31067 etc……. Furthermore if you are adding any reflector or international talk groups that are not suggested; we also require that they be programmed on TS 1 .

Mountain West DMR has moved its operations to Master 3102 for the purpose of stability

Because Mountain West DMR is affiliated with Brandmeister, you have the power to use any talk group you want to program into your radios. I say this with one subtle suggestion which is if it is not a talk group that is in the list of published talk groups; that you kindly place it on time slot 1 as to not interfere with the local traffic that is being utilized on time slot 2.

Further more any talk group that is not set to active always will be treated as a push to talk or user activated talk group meaning it will remain active so long as there is activity emanating from that talk group on the repeater it was made active. It is important to note that with User activated talk groups if 15 min elapses with no activity, that talk group will go back to non active until the next time it is activated on the said repeater.

Also because we are part of the Brandmeister network of DMR repeaters, you as a user have the ability to harness reflectors. Reflectors act like a talk group however you must have a activation TG of the reflector # on the TS you are using. To all on the reflector, you must then put your radio on TG 9 on the TS you activated the reflector and you can utilize that reflector just like a TG. Reflectors are more widely utilized in Europe then here in North America. Another use of a reflector is to bridge dissimilar networks such as System Fusion, D-Star, P25, and 20K0F3E (Analog)

You have the flexibility to use any talk group that is available on the Brandmeister network on any repeater anywhere. This is the true power of DMR or DMR 2.0

Go forth and enjoy the system as it was built with you in mind!!
