For text messaging to work correctly on the BrandMeister system, the Data Bearer Service must be set to Compressed IP. This setting can be found in CPS at Digital Common ⇒ Basic. In the Miscellaneous section.
The BrandMeister network allows Group Calls and Private Calls.
A Group Call is a call to a talk group number, in which other stations configured to listen to this talk group will receive and broadcast this call. These other stations can respond in the same group call using the same talk group number. A list of commonly used talk groups is available below.
When using a Hytera station, you can manually dial in a group ID by selecting Contact in the menu, select Manual Dial and press # to switch between Group or Private ID.
A Private Call is a call to a specific DMR ID. This allows a single station to connect over the BrandMeister network to another station. The communication is "private" in that other DMR stations with a different DMR ID programmed won't broadcast the QSO, but the communication is available for anyone listening in to the DMR stream or with a DMR station with an identical DMR ID programmed.
When using a Hytera station, you can manually dial in a private ID by selecting Contact in the menu, select Manual Dial and press # to switch between Group or Private ID.
