Volunteer members of have worked hard over the past few months to introduce the FreeDMR network into the Republic of Ireland. As a result, a national server was established with multiple modes integrated.
Enhanced Talk Groups / “Dial-a-TG”
Implementation of a new enhanced method to connect to non-static talkgroups. On FreeDMR users can now simply manual-dial private call to any talk group number to have it routed to Talk Group 9 on Time Slot 2 on a FreeDMR repeater/gateway. Pre-programming of all Talkgroups into each radio is no longer a requirement.
“Single mode” stops users being locked out of a talkgroup if another user accidentally tries to change to a different talkgroup mid-conversation.
