Link to a Talkgroup
BrandMeister allows linking to any talkgroup simply by setting that talkgroup number as the “TX Contact” for a channel. This is done by programing a channel for the repeater you want to use with the “TX Contact” set to the desired talkgroup number. You can then use the channel as you would any other channel for that repeater.
- Add talkgroup to the Contact List (if not already there)
- Program channel with TX Contact set to talkgroup number
- Use channel for QSO
This is the preferred way to link to a talkgroup you use regularly, as this programs it as a channel in your codeplug.
Link to a Repeater
BrandMeister supports “Reflectors”, which is the easiest way to link the local repeater to a remote destination. All activity is on TG 9, TS 2
- Use “REF LINK” channel TG 9, TS 2)
- Enter reflector number from keypad as a “Private Call”
- PTT to link
- Enter “4000” from keypad as a “Private Call” to unlink
- Enter “5000” from keypad as a “Private Call” for status .
