Channel naming

Currently the TYT and Retevis style channels use a font and position for channels that only give you 9 (or 8. if greater than 9) characters visible then it scrolls, however, the scroll is slow to start.

FM Channels are consistent with other configs:

  • VK2RBV 7 (70cm), VK2ROT 2 (2m)

DMR channels are more "creative"

visible Full TG TS Repeater
9 1CGVK2 9 1CGVK2 9 1 VK2RCG
3800 2CGV. 3800 2CGVK2 3800 2 VK2RCG
113 1CGVK. 113 1CGVK2 113 1 VK2RCG

Where I can resolve the type of Network the repeater is connected to it generates more or less channels.

i.e DMR-plus/MARC Generates 9/1, 8/1, 3800/2, 380x/2, 9/2, 4000/2, 5000/2, 9990/2, 1/1, 5/1, 13/1, 113/1, 123/1, 133/1, 143/1, 505/2

  • 380x is generated based on the home state of the repeater.

BrandMeister generates a similar list.

This is a fairly automated build so once you get the rdt file you should change a few things.

  • Your ID and similar fields in General Settings.

You probably want to move some other channels into the VK2RCGDMR zone (e.g. ROT,ROZ, RCG FM).

The tools I am using:-

  • Tyt MD-380 CPS
  • ContactManagerV133.exe from n0gsg
  • CPS Programmer V0-25 from DL5MCC
  • G4EML tools
