Peter, our open MMDVM server is available to the Ham public.

This server allows a method to use an internal PNWDigital server without the need nor overhead to gain limited access to our DMR network. It is useful for testing of hotspot set-up as well as access to a few of our internal talkgroups that are not shared with Brandmeister or other DMR networks.

It also allows access to our popular Nets when those nets use an internal talkgroup such as Cascades 1 or Washington 2. Peter may carry various nets from time to time.  Turn on your promiscuous mode to listen in. Check our CallWatch to see the activity on our network.

If you ARE member of PNWDigital, then you are welcome to access our wider list of MMDVM servers with custom talkgroup decks.

While Peter is a public portal, PNWDigital.Net also has a number of member portals with more extensive talkgroup decks.  We currently have 9 MMDVM servers with varying talkgroup decks and purposes.  2 of those servers are designed to support 2 slot repeaters and hotspots.This particular project has been in the works for months but is based on the great work of multiple folks going back 6 years or so.  All software is open-sourced and available on GitHub by Cort, N0MJS and his crew of supporters.  Also kudos to and for the fine assistance of Corey N3FE, one of the USA Brandmeister admins who initially shepherded our efforts at PNWDigital.Net.  Also to Vance, W6SS for being the one who coded the installation script (still used by our new use of Docker) and explained how it worked, which is instrumental to enabling Linux neophytes to be able to install and manage their own MMDVM projects. And finally to Dylan KI7SBI, who put this project inside a Docker file to enable multiple MMDVM servers to reside on a single VM.The partner programs used are:  dmr_utilsdmrlink, hblink and Docker.Please see our install page for more on how to deploy your own server
