Changing TalkGroups using P25

Post by ka1mxl »

Is there a way to change P25 talkgroups by keying the radio like I do with my mmdvm hotspots? I do not want to be tied to the keyboard to change groups. I see minimal information in the manual regarding P25!

THANKS

Please see http://manuals.sharkrf.com/openspot3/en ... ector.html

Switching P25Reflector servers using your radio

You can switch P25Reflector servers with your radio by calling the desired server's ID with a private call.

Hi Norbert,

Is there a reason why it the OS3 does not use similar talkgroup routing functions like that of the Pi-Star system? It seems more natural from a programming standpoint to just configure the talkgroup in the P25 channel and allow the TGID to control the reflector routing vs having to make a private call to the TG ID to chat the. I suppose it's all preference or might be just the way it works? A compromise might be to have an option in the settings to allow the user to select either Private Call TG Routing or allow the Talkgroup ID for reflector routing. Just a suggestion, I hope I'm explaining that correctly.

Kind Regards,
Ted

The reason for this is to support servers which can handle multiple talkgroups.

You need to start a private call to the desired TG ID on the OS2.
