CQ CQ CQ: Ham Radio – #ZedNet reminder – Sunday 21 March ’21

Here’s a reminder about ZedNet for Sunday 21 March ’21 – evening at 2000h EDT. (0000h ZULU Monday).  Europe has not yet changed hours.

We now have the site running:  http://zednet.xyz

I hope some of you hams with DMR etc. access will check in!  We are getting new participants as you hams try these digital modes.

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. Echolink is running again!  WB0YLE-R

Fellow hams who have access locally to a Yaesu System Fusion repeater, a repeater on the BM network, or a multi-mode hotspot registered with BM can get on and have a rag chew…. 24/7/365

Anyone who uses Brandmeister ought to know this about their changes – you need a personal password now: HERE  In effect, they applied security to their “masters”.  You must set a personal password.

WB0YLE gave me a clear list, a BOM, with links, of everything you need to get involved.

HERE  THIS WAS UPDATED on 22 March 2021

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.

    Tried to get on ZedNet Wires-x room 28598 but it would connect for one sec and then Say no Answer from PC. Note that I am using the Wires-X PC Software and My FTM400 connected direct. Is any one else having this problem trying to connect to wiresx room on sunday nights at 8PM? thanks KC1OGS. also note there were only 3 people in the wiresx room.

    Jim – the whole thing is mysterious. I’m connecting on YSF through YSF2DMR and Brandmeister, to the DMR group 31429. I have tried going straight to the Wires-X room 28598, and so far have not made a contact there. No local repeaters in my neighborhood that I can connect, so I’m using Pi-Star. It took some time to get it set up, but it basically can crosslink YSF to DMR using YSF2DMR. Wasn’t set up in time for the March 21 Zednet. 73, KF0ENV, Tom
