Using a DV4mini dongle.

This is a great way to get onto the BrandMeister DMR network, which seems to have a lot more activity than the DMR-Marc network at the moment. I am now for the first time also able to access the D-Star network with my IC 7100 radio which has previously not been able to log into a repeater from my location.
No Fusion radio to try that mode.
I have found setting up the software a little challenge but well worth the effort.
Having fun on Digital radio.

Monitoring the DMR Brandmeister Network

DMR radio is very popular in many parts of the World; one of the Internet linking networks called the Brandmeister Network now has a first class web site which allows you not only to view the activity but also to hear the voices of the stations and sometimes even to see their photo's.

A site well worth monitoring and bookmarking if you have an interest in Digital Amateur Radio.
Start with the UK English main talk group.
