MESSAGE POSTED 23rd February 2016:


Hi All, G1XCC As the founder of DMR in the UK I'm just letting you all know that as of Saturday 20th Feb 2016 the following UK DMR Repeaters have moved over to the BrandMeister UK Network:

GB7DD, GB7EE, GB7EL, GB7HS, GB7HX, GB7LE,
GB7LN, GB7MR, GB7SR, GB7TD, and GB7TP


All of these repeaters are operating as they were before the move with the exception of no connection to the Phoenix networked DMR Repeaters.

You can add Reflectors and the USA Talkgroup (TG3) if you wish. Activity Logs can be viewed under the BRANDMEISTER button on the toolbar of this page.

This move has taken a couple of weeks to organise between myself, the above repeater keepers, and Jon G4TSN from the BrandMeister Team, a big thank you to all.

The graphic below shows the designation of TalkGroups per slot.

Users are reminded to always try and use the TalkGroup that transmits on the least number of repeaters and to make use of the User Activated TalkGroups or even QSY to simplex if this is an option available to you.

If you have any questions then you can submit them using the
CONTACT US form and either Michael G1XCC or Martin MM0DUN
will reply to your query.


DMR repeaters each have the capability to provide local, regional and worldwide repeater coverage. Much more than that though, the network allows two completely separate QSOs at the same time, a unique feature made possible 
using Motorola's "Time Division Multiple Access" (TDMA) technology. This enables a TDMA repeater to divide transmissions into two discrete and pre-selectable "talkgroups", routing them appropriately to others monitoring the same group anywhere around the world. Effectively, this means two completely separate voice channels are possible within one standard 12.5kHz frequency allocation - highly efficient use of the spectrum!

What this means in practice is that to set up a QSO, just select the desired talkgroup on a suitably programmed radio, key up and you will be heard on every repeater on the same group worldwide. Very easy and for mobile use, very safe.

Whats so good about MotoTRBO DMR TDMA?
Time-Division Multiple-Access (TDMA) preserves the full channel width and divides it into alternating time slots that can each carry an individual call. Motorola maintains that two-slot 12.5 kHz TDMA-based systems, providing 6.25 kHz equivalency, are the better choice for most large organization/enterprise radio users. This means that two seperate conversations can be handled by the one repeater, on the same frequency but a different "channel".

TDMA technology for narrowband 12.5 KHz (6.25 equivalent-6.25e) organization/business radio users, provides advantages of feature flexibility, lower equipment costs, longer battery life, future-readiness, and the proven ability to increase spectral efficiency without risking increased congestion or interference.

DMR, like all repeaters needs the support of the people who use them to ensure they are always available for use not only now but in the years to come.

Many repeaters are funded out of the pocket of the Repeater Keeper themselves and with the introduction of Digital Repeaters like the DMR ones there are monthly costs for the internet connectivity.

As to what will happen with any Donations made via this website this is yet to be decided and when this has the information will be posted here at the time the Donate button becomes operational. This will allow an individual to decide if they wish to donate to DMRUK or not.
