Last Sunday we started up our very first ZedNet on in the evening at 8PM EST. We had five check ins.
I had a devil of a time connecting (cf. Zuhlsdorf’s Law) because Brandmeister has been making changes for security and… I did NOT get a notice from them! Eventually the change I had to make was communicated to me and it worked after I altered the settings on my DMR hotspot.
Anyone who uses Brandmeister ought to know this about their changes: HERE
In effect, they are applying security to their “masters”. They want you to set a personal password. I did and it works.
One of the participants in the ZedNet mentioned the possible conflict with the St Maximillian Kolbe Net on 80m on Sunday nights. We are going to stick to this slot for a while, at least, to try to get it going.
I hope some of you hams with DMR etc. access will check in!
Zednet exists on the Yaesu System Fusion (Wires-X) “room” 28598, which is cross-linked to Brandmeister (BM) DMR worldwide talkgroup 31429, which essentially gives world-wide multi-mode access to a common ham radio network. Right not, no Echolink. It worked once but not now.
Any fellow hams who have access locally to a Yaesu System Fusion repeater, a repeater on the BM network, or a multi-mode hotspot that’s registered with BM can get on and have a rag chew…. 24/7/365
WB0YLE gave me a clear list, with links, of everything you need to get involved.
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.
