GB7WI is connected to BrandMeister network providing reliable digital communications to radio amateurs worldwide.
Having two Time Slots (TS) allows two conversations to take
place simultaneously using one frequency. This means you can
be talking to someone on TS1 using the Yorkshire Talk Group TG
23560 whilst another station uses TS2 to connect to World Wide
A huge advantage of BrandMeister is that it is dedicated to amateur radio, you can use Motorola and Hytera repeaters, GPS/GPRS, Reflectors and you can use a DMR hotspot/dongle/accesspoint and homebrew DMR repeaters! No matter where you are in the world, if a repeater is available or not, whether you are in your car, house or in a hotel room you will have the capability for worldwide communication.

just to name a few, but there are many more busy places to visit. TG 4000 is used to dissconnect your talk group. Also Check out the BrandMeister LH site (last heard) link is above, to see what is currently active. TG 23530 Yorkshire remains active on TS1 at all times as it is set up as a Static TG. Other Talk Groups will remain active for 13mins before timing out if not used.
TS2 is now used for talk groups same as TS1. Reflectors are now no longer in operation on Brandmeiser. UK wide TG 2350 is set up as static TG on slot 2 however any talk group can be used on here. Also..TG 4000 is used to dissconnect your talk group if you wish to close it down.
