Hello. If I want to connect 2 repeaters together without using TG, can I call a repeater so that only 2 are connected? oz2gre

I think the flavor of the question leaned toward wanting to link repeaters without using a public talk-group. If so, a cluster can be created by a master-server sysop, and then the repeater can be configured, using the dash board, to use the cluster. A cluster encapsulates a talk-group, but limits access to only other repeaters that are using the cluster (i.e. it overloads the talk-group). For example, repeaters using a cluster with talk-group 2 on time-slot 2 would have communications with other repeaters subscribing to the same cluster. At the same time, traffic outside of the cluster that is on talk-group 2 remains off cluster (i.e. the clustered repeaters cannot hear the non-clustered traffic on the same talk-group and visa versa). Consult with your master server sysop...

Radio code plugs that have the cluster talk-group on the repeater that subscribes to the cluster are no different than non-clustered code plugs. The individual operator simply selects a channel with the talk-group encapsulated within the cluster. The individual operator may or may not be aware that a cluster is being used.

For an example, look at any of the NorCal repeaters, 310606, or 311602 or 311603.

Hello Gunnar! If 2 people use 2 different BrandMeister repeaters, and they program the same TG# in their codeplug (for ex: 12345), no matter what timeslot. When both people press PTT, they will create a dynamic TG, and they will be able to talk to eachother. You can say the "two repeaters are connected". Hope this helps.

No, you need to use a TG or a reflector - this is how DMR works :)
