The Return

The net will be returning tonight at 0000 UTC. We have changed the link to reflect the new TG we will be using. We are also changing it from from TAC 310 to TG 310-01 Net. The website will remain as is for information regarding the net. We have created a new Facebook Page to also reflect the net activities. The former group will remain as general conversation about TAC 310. No one expressed any interest in continuing to do a net on 310. The online page will function as always has and have been updated to reflect the new information.   The return happens tonight.

The Future Of TAC 310 Net

On Friday June 5 2019, I noticed a posting in the Facebook group with the message “looks like it happened”. This was first indication that something had changed although the news was now a week old. I looked through the various postings and realized that Brandmeister had shut off the ability of users to make TAC 310 static. While the Facebook group is based on the net, and not the talkgroup, I made a decision to suspend all nets on the talkgroup. I did this because if we had that many kerchunks when had the capability of static, what would the net be with EVERTYONE chunking? I continued to follow the conversations on TAC 310, Brandmeister DMR Master, and Brandmeister USA. As I did, I saw the firestorm of comments both good and bad regarding this action. As of 1200 ET Saturday June 6 2019 Brandmeister pulled the plug on TAC 310. The talkgroup has been temporarily disabled with no date of when it is going to be connected again to DCI. Again while the Facebook group does not deal with the 310, this action does affect my continued ability of running of the net. In my area, I can use my hotspot, or the local repeater on Brandmeister. The other local repeater is on the NEDECN system, which long ago also removed all access to TAC 310 for the numerous complaints their users had filed. There is no DCI access in my area. So the question that is on everyone’s mind is what is the future for the TAC 310 net? While Brandmeister may restore access, I have come to the decision that my online duties for the TAC 310 Net will have to fall to someone else who is interested, and still has access to TAC 310. I enjoyed running the nets for the last year, and thank everyone who stopped in week after week to check in. Does this mean no more nets? On TAC 310 yes, but I have secured permission to move my net to TG 31001, known as Net 1 on Brandmeister. I know that C Bridges can connect to it, and maybe some of those bridges will in the future. We will still use the online page but I will have to contact Jesse about updating the information. We will use the Facebook group I created last year when we ran the experiment. If you haven’t already followed the group invite on TAC 310 group, I suggest you follow it to become a member of the new group. I know that some are die hard TAC 310 fans and won’t follow. I would hope you would but that is a decision you all have to make for yourself. The TAC 310 Facebook will remain in case you do have someone who wants to continue trying to do the net on that talkgroup. This website will also reflect the new talkgroup, if it is easy to change. For now, it will remain as tac310.net until I am able to change it to the new one. Any questions you may have you can reply here, or on the new Facebook group.

IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ

This information was received by Jeff Woods:
As of a few hours ago, the North American admins of the Brandmeister network have taken the ability away from users to make TAC 310,311,312 a static talk group on a repeater or hotspot. Hotspots that have one of these talk groups set as static will have it manually removed at some point in the next few days.

The TAC talk groups were never meant to be a “calling” talk group. That is, they were designed to be used to offload a QSO from a higher profile talk group. Due to the amount of traffic being initiated on these TAC talk groups, they have degraded to a level of being unfunctional. Some repeater owners have even blocked their use on their networks or repeaters. This is counter to what their original designation was.

For hotspot users, remember the Parrot talk group is your friend. As you make adjustments to your device settings, tune there so you are not keying up many repeaters for a simple audio check on a high profile talk group. You should get a pretty good idea how your audio is sounding, or that you are able to key up a talk group with a minimal BER (bit error rate).

My guess is over time most North American activity will be pushed back to talk group 3100.

DMR is still evolving as a mode for our hobby. There are many repeater owners, network admins, Cbridge owners, and others that volunteer their time and money to ensure a pleasant user experience for us all. This change is simply an evolution to ensuring this goal happens for everyone.

At this time, I am going to suspend the nets until I research this further.  I can not access TAC 310 without using Brandmeister at this time.
