Good idea -

Select OPTIONAL SETTING - GPS/RANGING from the left hand box and you can turn off the GPS

Selecting TOOLS - OPTIONS from the top line menus and checking the APRS box adds an APRS section to the left hand box. You can play with the APRS settings there.

Hi, All -

A number of you have the Anytone 878s now. Besides the instructions for
those of you so inclined some interesting info can be found here:

http://members.optuszoo.com.au/jason.reilly1/868mods.htm

Some recommendations based on my experience the the 868/878 as well as
what I learned from the Internet:

(1) If you look at the back of your radio you'll notice the metal
charging tabs are relatively exposed. You really don't want these to
short out. You might want to invest in a radio pouch or holster (5.11
makes a nice one that fits the radio well  for around $15 when on sale
https://www.511tactical.com/radio-pouch.html ) or, in a pinch a piece of
blue painter's tape will work. Just take the tape off when you are ready
to charge the radio, or else the process it will take a LONG time. Ask
me how I know...:-)

(2) There have been reported problems with the 868 version of this radio
being damaged when transmitting while in the charger or with the USB
programming cable attached. This may hold true for the 878 - best to
avoid pushing the PTT in these circumstances. Personally when I charge
my radios I turn them off as recommended.

(3) For the best battery life suggest you review section 2 "Battery
Information" in your operating manual. These radios don't seem to have
very sophisticated Li-ion battery protection circuits. TL-DR fully
charge/discharge a couple of time for best capacity; take the radio out
of the charger when the light turns green; leave the radio off when
charging.

DMR - Notes From Yesterday's Meeting

Jer Kostro - Red Cross
 

HI (Again) -

For those of you at yesterday's meeting (and those of you that weren't) I've documented some of the topics we talked about:

Radio IDs - https://www.radioid.net/#! Most of you who have DMR radios have been to this site already and have registered. IIRC new assignee's can have up to two Radio IDs. You can probably get a few more but you have to convince the administrators to give them to you. If you don't have a Radio ID you'll need to upload an "official" copy of your FCC license to the site. Instructions here http://www.arrl.org/obtain-license-copy . "Reference" copies DO NOT WORK - has to be marked "Official".

Note: you don't need a separate Radio ID for a hotspot (like a ZumSpot). Use the ID of the radio you will be using the hotspot with.

Updating the contact list - go to this website https://kf5iw.com/contactdb.php and download the zip file. Unzip, open your CPS software and import the CSV file (TOOL - IMPORT - select the CSV file in the DIGITAL CONTACT LIST box). The worldwide list is large - it will take four or five minutes to load.

DO NOT IMPORT the file INTO THE RADIO ID box! (You have been warned!)

The file seems to be  updated weekly on Tuesdays. You can take the CSV file, import it into a spreadsheet program, and modify as necessary. Eventually this will be necessary as the contact list will outgrow the capacity of the 878. (Current list is ~133,000 IDs - IIRC the 878 can handle up to 160,000). Personally, updating once a month works for me.

Brandmeister System - https://brandmeister.network/

Hoseline is the online service you can use to monitor talk groups. Selected links follow:

https://hose.brandmeister.network/group/310980/ (our Red Cross primary talk group)

https://hose.brandmeister.network/group/310991/ (our Red Cross tactical TG)

https://hose.brandmeister.network/group/3100/# (Nationwide calling - always something going on here)

https://hose.brandmeister.network/group/3106/# (California - The DMR Net is on this TG 2000 hours Monday evenings)

If you register on the system you can avail yourself of additional services. Especially useful if you are running a hotspot.

PAPA System - highly recommend you consider joining if you are not already a member - IMHO a very good value for what you get. http://papasys.com/ You can register as a guest and check them out for free.

Lots of useful information can be found here: http://papasys.com/dmr/DMR101/

More later when/if I think of it. Please let me know if I missed anything.

Jer aka AK6QJ
