DMR, a short for Digital Mobile Radio, is an open standard defined by European Telecommunications Standards Institute for digital mobile radio. Radio amateurs around the globe has been using this standard to communicate.
The standard is defined only on the terminal side, not on the network side. Due to this, there was difficult in the early days to use repeater hardware from different manufacturers in the same network.
The problem using hardware of different brands was solved when the Brandmeister team released their server software and the site brandmeister.network.
You can connect prebuilt repeater hardware from Motorola and Hytera as well as home build repeaters using MMDVM to the Brandmeister system. You can also connect hotspots acting not as a repeater but as a bridge between the network and a RF frequency.
My DMR-ID is 2400029. In case you want to try, feel free to give me a private call. You can also call me on talk group 2400.
I’ve been using Xubuntu since 2013 and I would like to take this opportunity to let everyone know how happy I am using Xubuntu. As I’m already using the 64-bit version I look forward to use Xubuntu many years to come.
Thanks a zillion to the entire Xubuntu team maintaining my favourite Linux distribution!
As you might have understood online privacy matters a lot to me.
This doesn’t mean I fully agree what Mr Julian Assange say or do. The same day as Mr Assange and Wikileaks releases as many leaks about China and Russia as they release about United States and its allies, that day I will re-evaluate my perception of them.
According my opinion Mr Assange and Wikileaks are connected to the Russian government to such level that we can call them Voice of Kremlin! Sarah Harrison, deeply involved in Wikileaks, helped Edward Snowden to escape to… Moscow.
Are all the people around Mr Assange good guys? No. One of them, Mr Jacob Appelbaum, is accused for sexual abuses in the film Risk by Laura Poitras. Mr Appelbaum’s abuses is even mentioned on Wikipedia. Maybe Mr Assange is guilty to whatever he is accused for by the Swedish prosecutor?
Yes, I believe we as individuals need to be able to keep our privacy and integrity when being online. But also states and governments need to keep secrets. Therefore all governmental agencies are not per definition bad.
