Net 1 (TG ID 31001 on
TS 1) and Net 2 (31002 on TS 2) are
Brandmeister talkgroups reserved only for nets,
gathering, roundtables and the like. PNW has
elected to adopt the concept and pass various events,
either from Brandmeister or via our own connections.
We are implementing a soft approach which should
minimize disturbance to local repeater use and allow for
a user and repeater owner input.
Which events that are
carried are up to the PNW Admins, the repeater owners
and also by user request. We may also provide
other BM events that are not carried on their Net
talkgroups. The PAPA net is an example of a BM net which will now
appear on Net 2 as PNW does not otherwise BM's 3106 but
does carry the original California 3106 via
We have no plans to
actively use Net 1 at this time (any Brandmeister
Net 1 events would appear on PNW's Net 2 for now). Also, our MMDVM servers will
not carry Net 1 or 2 as hotspot owners are able to get
the Brandmeister talkgroups directly.
repeaters carrying Net 2 events will normally be in PTT, so you
must kerchunk to activate the event at anytime from 5
minutes before or anytime during the event. You
should only need to do a PTT once. The On-timer
is generally for set to match the typical length of a
particular net. If a local user kerchunks it off
then you and the user need to decide if the net shal
continue by way of another Net 2 kerchunk.
Not all PNW repeaters
will participate. If you want to have a net
carried, please contact the repeater owner and discuss
it. Only the repeater owner(s) can approve carrying
an event and under their choice of conditions.
The PNW Gathering
will remain on WA 2 but is made available to other
c-Bridges upon request. Brandmeister Net 2 and PNW
regional 2 do not
carry our Gathering at this time but a switch may be
made to PNW Regional (31771) in the future.
The Net talkgroups
are listed in the matrices and nets listed here as the guide to Net 2 appearances. Remember Net 2 is only available
for certain nets at specific times and is not otherwise
available for use.
