DMR | DMR-Repeaters / DMR Repeater Deployment in Washington State
This is a general considerations group to foster MotoTRBO repeater growth and coverage expansion in the Pacific Northwest.  This is a subgroup for MotoTRBO repeater owners in Washington British Columbia, Idaho, Oregon and Washington.  FM Repeater owners are generally welcome if they are active in PNW DMR already and are generally interested in deploying MotoTRBO repeaters. Please update your Subscription Profile to include: call, name, location and optionally more info along the line of the subject of this subgroup.  This should be done when you request to join or very soon thereafter.  More info on that update *HERE* ( http://www.trbo.org/pnw/joining-groups-io.html ). The purpose is to be able to discuss TRBO repeater deployment options.  Subjects such as which sites, coverages, UHF or VHF, costs, points of contacts, site requirements, existing FM repeaters considered to switch to MotoTRBO, etc. Membership is primarily by invitation.  If this appeals to you, you are welcome to request to join our group.  You should update your subscription profile to include the basic information above as well as your interest, experience and why you wish to join.  If you know one of the members of this group, please mention that as well.  This is not a secret handshake society but a selective private effort to more efficiently expand MotoTRBO DMR in our region through our collective experiences and efforts. Negotiations or other private stuff is optional and likely best not discussed here.  If you are shy, please email: *pnwdmr@gmail.com* and tell us what you don't wish the entire group to know.  We look forward to a wide and experienced group of folks who are driven to get things done and hope you will participate and not just lurk...because you can.

DMR | MMDVM / MMDVM Server Project for Multiple Servers in the Same Virtual Machine
This group will be used to document our efforts to roll out 2 or more MMDVM to IPSC servers (AKA: Bridget) on the same VM. Please provide your first name and call sign in your subscription/profile after your request to join has been made.  If you do not do this you will not be be joining our group.  Think of it as a simple test to follow instructions. UPDATE: We have our first multiple instances running on a single VM with the great help by Dylan KI7SBI.  He has published his work on GitHub.  What we still lack is the install scripting and documentation that enables a 2 or 3 instance install using a newly spun-up VM (at Digital Ocean).  That is in the works and normal workloads and the holidays have slowed out effort to publish the script and documentation.  But it is coming... It is not a general MMDVM support group but a specific effort for the common man to be able to roll out their own multiple servers on the same machine.  While we have a narrow focus, we will share the fruits of our efforts with other neophyte groups who wish to deploy their own MMDVM services for their members.  Or consider this an in-house effort to discuss how to and best approach to, this goal. We are using the cool project that W0MJS, Cort has spearheaded and others have contributed to over the years.  See the overall project at:  Github ( https://github.com/n0mjs710/DMRlink ) and join their Forum ( https://groups.io/g/DVSwitch ) if you are interested in their work. We have wanted to be able to offer an easy method to stack up our MMDVM servers on the same VM so that multiple MMDVM devices could access different talkgroup decks to various c-Bridges (via IPSC).  Then to publish the method so that others (like us) who know little about Linux would be able to deploy these multiple servers. As our busy Bridget here at PNW DMR is only using about 11% CPU on a minimal DO 1 core VM, we think we can stack up 4 or 5 more "Bridgets", so to speak on a single monthly service.  Memory use is the larger factor over that of CPU as our early 2 stack is using about 300 MB RAM Likely others have done this already and it is not a big deal but the secret sauce hasn't trickled down to us yet.  While others have lent a hand in the past with Screen and one other method I don't recall now, we were stuck until Dylan came to our rescue with his Docker implementation. If you would like to help, let us know.  If you request to join, please update your profile/bio if we don't already know you.  Here's how ( http://www.trbo.org/pnw/joining-groups-io.html ) * *

DMR | PNW / Pacific Northwest DMR
Pacific Northwest DMR --------------------- A Ham based c-Bridge IPSC network of MotoTRBO repeaters located in British Columbia, Idaho, Oregon and Washington with MMDVM support. NOTE: You must enter at least your call sign and location into your Subscription/profile after requesting to join.  Please do not skip this step as it will delay your request or may cause a rejection. 12-20-17:  Goups.io is now the main support and information vehicle for the users of the Pacific Northwest Ham DMR Networks serving Washington, Oregon and Idaho. British Columbia is also affiliated and we share many of our PNW talkgroups. Our membership criteria is based on call sign and member location.  To join our group, please provide your call and location.  Additional information may speed up your approval.  More details HERE ( http://www.trbo.org/pnw/joining-groups-io.html ) to speed up your approval. This is an interactive group, so please if you have questions, comments or wish to help others with their DMR activities, jump right in and post. If few participate, then our group will provide poorer support for its members. New users, PLEASE check out our other support page on PNW at: www.trbo.org/pnw ( http://www.trbo.org/pnw ) for a quick update on repeaters, talkgroups & our best practice page or go to our Wiki ( https://dmr.groups.io/g/PNW/wiki/home ) for that information.  All users are expected to have read those pages and operate accordingly.  Any questions, please send them to: pnwdmr@gmail.com or to our moderators at:  PNW+owner@DMR.groups.io ( PNW+owner@DMR.groups.io ) Please add your name and call to your profile also.  Any other info is optional but always nice (profile image/avatar is very handy to have) to be able to get to know group members better with a bit of help via their profile. We are now focusing our build-out efforts east of the Cascades with 2 repeaters added in 2017 and 5 more repeaters (planned) to be added in 2018.  The west side coverage is most excellent now but we still encourage individuals and clubs, ARES groups, etc to BYOB their own repeaters for fill-in services anywhere in our region.  We will assist you in deploying your assets to come onto the PNW DMR Network. We use MotoTRBO repeaters but are client radio agnostic as long as they work properly on our networks. While MotoTRBO is fully supported and BFDX CS-580's and Anytone AT-D868UV (dual band) are the suggested lower cost options, other models may require their owners to support their radios directly. We appreciate and encourage all member to share their codeplugs and experiences with the group. PNW also supports MMDVM devices with our main "Bridget" servers but also several others are available for member use.  openSPOT's, ZUMspots, etc may connect directly into our network, providing an alternative to Brandmeister connections.  We do also have a few BM cross-connected talkgroups as well as our own dedicated BM talkgroup: PNW Regional, TG ID 31771 (timeslot 2 on our c-Bridge) This is NOT a general DMR group and is only open to members living in our region or those with exceptional reasons if not in our area. We need to know your callsign and location at the very minimum, so update your profile and for faster service to be approved, send an Email to: pnwdmr@gmail.com with your call, location and why you wish to join.  This group is not moderated. It is your choice if you don't want list posts via Email, please go to your profile and adjust how emails are sent to you.  Digesting is a great option to bundle up multiple posts and receive a menu'ed grouping of individual posts.  ln case of PNW crisis (as we recently had with Yahoo Groups) the moderators may require information to be disseminated ASAP, we may override your settings to push important system information your way for this event only.

DMR | PNW-Idaho / Idaho DMR Repeaters on the PNW DMR Network
A place keeper for Idaho State if there is any interest.  Currently the solo Idaho repeater closely follows Washington state due to stateline proximity as well as excellent overlapping coverage with the Spokane repeater.
