Today after friendly discussions with Ofcom and RSGB ETCC, We are very happy to announce the Chertsey DMR / Brandmaster hotspot MB6ICU

Access is on 434.5125 Talkgroup is TG9 (local)  colour code 1 and slot 2

MB6ICU is mostly on Brandmaster channel 4400



You can control the channel by setting your code plug up as follows

In contacts you will need each of the groups you wish to access
So popular in the UK 4400, 4401, 4402 and 4403 also add 4000(no-link)

next set up the channels
In digital channels you will need to create the following

MB6ICU-Main
frequency tx / rx: 434.5125
colour code 1
timeslot 2
TX contact Local TG9



Next create

MB6ICU-Drop (this will disconnect current channel)
frequency tx / rx: 434.5125
colour code 1
timeslot 2
TX contact 4000

Next create

MB6ICU-to-4400

Next create

MB6ICU-to-4401

Add 4402 and 4403 and any other channels you require to your channel list.

Next you will need to create a ZONE

Call the zone MB6ICU
Add each of the channels starting with MB6ICU-Main
to the zone.



Now save your code plug and upload to your radio.

To operate MB6ICU tune radio to MB6ICU / MB6ICU-Main
Listen, to ensure no one else is using the hot-spot.
If they are please join in say hello.

If not firstly rotate the channel knob to MB6ICU-Drop and TX for about 5 seconds
This will drop all channels and return the hot-spot to disconnected
Next rotate the channel knob to the channel you wish to use, again tx for 5 seconds
This will force the hot-spot to connect to your chosen channel.

Next you need to change channel back to MB6ICU-Main

You are now connected and can use the hotspot on your chosen channel.

any questions my details are on qrz.com

Enjoy the hot-spot
