I am a new ham, and just got my dmr hot spot up and going. I was listening to a QSO about tac 310 and its usage. You comment explained it very well and now I understand. I wish things were explained in plane understandable words like this on other web sites so that new hams like me dont make other operators angry or use the system incorrectly by accident. Thanks for the post.
You are most very welcome! Please enjoy and pass your new knowledge on. That is how we can all learn together! :cool:

How long before this happens on TG 91?

It's amazing how long people will tie up the talk group with a combination of "DMR DXing" combined with "DMR Ragchewing".

For some reason my hotspot wouldn't drop the group last night and it was tied up on that group for at least 8 hours last night.

Brandmeister seems to have trouble dropping the group on the BM Dashboard despite repeated attempts to drop it.

Any ideas, other than avoiding the TG like the Bubonic Plague?

If your hotspot uses PiStar, did you try logging into the hotspot and killing that TG? Usually if that TG is 'PTT' you can kill it from the Admin window.

For TGIF network, go to "Admin" page, put another TG in the "Talkgroup Number", select "Link", then click "Modify Reflector", and that will switch to a different TG. Or just "UnLink" to simply disconnect from the current TG. I haven't tried this with BM.

EDIT: I just tried with BM and it doesn't exist. Another good reason to use TGIF.

315, 316, 317, 318, 319 would be good choices.

That is assuming all of you are licensed of course. Is your daughter licensed in Sweden, or using a reciprocal agreement with the FCC?

Illinois statewide has very little traffic. I don't recall the last time I heard someone on Midwest.

The rules are pretty much the same. Is this frequency in use? No, good, go for it.

Did you try the disconnect command? A call to 4000?
