DMR SSID?

Post by kd4ppg » Mon Jul 02, 2018 2:37 pm

This is not really an openspot specific question, but I'm still rather new to DMR and haven't found a clear answer elsewhere.

I've been using the DMR SSID feature on one of my openspots (appending 2 digits to my DMR ID#, 99 in my case). I'm getting ready to program a second radio and wondered if I should be using SSID numbers on my radios also. For example, an HT with 02 and a mobile radio with 03. I don't know if this is considered good practice or not, and would rather not do the wrong thing here. What happens if both radios have the same ID number?

thanks,
jim

You don't have to use an SSID in your radios.

Use your seven digit ID in all of your radios, unless two of them will be on the network at the same time. (such as loaning out a radio) In that case, you will need to apply for a second ID.
