Is there a link between BM and MARC ? I noticed that the DV4MINI interface does not support MARC either or am I wrong and is there a way around ?

I wil be travelling and staying frequently in VK in the near future but appearantly no BM in downunder ? Only way to hook up with BM Belgium would be via the DV4MINI then. But working a local repeater is always more fun ofcourse.

Tnx for your reply and 73 de Ronald, ON4BBQ

Hello Ronald!

As you may already know, "cBridges" are the back-end servers for the Motorola's repeaters on the MARC network. For the Brandmeister network, the "Master Servers" are the back-end. They not only accept Motorola but also Hytera and RadioActivity commercial repeaters.

Brandmeister servers can also create a "CC Connection" to a cBridge to exchange Talkgroups between the BrandMeister network and a cBridge, such as the ones used with the MARC network.

So the answer is: you can connect a Hytera repeater to a Brandmeister Master Server , and make sure that one owner of a MARC cBridge creates a CC-Connection with a BrandMeister master server and exchange the MARC Talkgroups your users want to talk to. BrandMeister has no problem with this type of interconnection, but you might want to ask MARC if they are also okay with the interconnect and talkgroups exchanges.

Does this answer your question ?

Many thanks ! Indeed I found out that what BM is concerned there is no problem. MARC however is not hot in interconnecting from their side to BM. That is the problem appearantly. Too bad. 73 de Ronald , ON4BBQ
