A number of tests have been conducted between Phoenix and DMR+.

Test's have been made using both the DV4 Mini and DV Mega.

Repeaters included are; GB7SE, GB7WL, GB7AL, GB7MK, GB3OM and GB7AV.

Further updates will be posted as testing continues.

Is anyone using this regularly?

I connected a few times and you get a synthesised voice announcement about "Reflector 4400" but I never heard any use of the reflector.

Maybe that's because the repeater hook up has only happened recently.

The connection to Phoenix is recent. Also, you will find that traffic peaks at various times of the day now that the word is out of the test link.

If / When it goes fully operational, I'm sure it will be better published and if it's added to a lot more repeaters then it could prove useful.

I listened a bit over this last weekend, there is indeed some activity from time to time so clearly its existence is gradually coming to people's attention.

Yip, I believe that there are still some minor issues to be resolved.

A few of us have been trying it on repeaters, the DV4 Mini and DV Mega and it's all going good.

More reflectors have been linked to Phoenix regional talk groups today - http://www.dmr-uk.net/index.php/hotspots/

Note that the reflector list is not set as the system as the DMR Plus Admins will allocate the UK more reflectors during this test period.

There have been drop outs experienced when using MMDVM however updating to the latest version will rectify this issue.

The latest version also allows users to set the default reflector and time out when on another reflector (the system will then revert back to the default).
