CQ CQ CQ – #HamRadio Saturday: ZedNet slowly growing

Just a reminder to any hams out there who might be interested in ZedNet.

Just recently a Catholic permanent deacon who has been a reader of many years has chimed in on ZedNet, through his local repeater.  The technology is interesting.

ZedNet is Brandmeister DMR worldwide talkgroup 31429

More HERE.   But quickly…

For you who are into this digital stuff, ZedNet still exists on the
Yaesu System Fusion (Wires-X) “room” 28598, which is cross-linked to Brandmeister (BM) DMR worldwide talkgroup 31429.  This gives world-wide multi-mode access to a common ham radio network.

Any fellow hams who have access locally to a Yaesu System Fusion
repeater, a repeater on the Brandmeister network, or a multi-mode hotspot
registered with BM can get on and have a rag chew.

WB0YLE gave me a Bill of Materials.  A list of what you need.  HERE

What are we doing with this?  Not much right now, but who knows.  And it’s fun to make it work.

I created a page for the List of YOUR callsigns.  HERE  Chime in or drop me a note if your call doesn’t appear in the list.

    So, I have a Yaesu Fusion radio in my car. I do not have the Wires-X setup. Would I just need to find a Brandmeister connected repeater in my area? Brandmeister doesn’t sound familiar, so there may not be one around here.

    I think that’s right, but I am hardly the one to ask. We should get the expert, WB0YLE in on this!
