In early September 2020 over 20 participants in the ‘8:35 on the 805’ QSO were capable of using the DMR Digital Voice protocol and several of us began monitoring the DMR Mid-Hudson Valley Talk Group 31368. We were particularly interested in ‘firing up’ this local talk group to provide an alternative to our VHF and UHF repeater and simplex communication resources.
The graph above provided by Joe AD2AH shows the dramatic increase in activity on 31368 that occurred in the ensuing days.
So, who was talking? See below.
Thanks to Joe, here’s how you can use the Brandmeister Analytics for your own research.
—Go to BrandMeister Home Page
—On LEFT Column, click on DATA VISUALISATION
—Under the data visualization dropdown, click on CONTACTS EXPORT
—Only need to fill in the TOP space for Talk Group Number (e.g.31368)
— (NO NEED TO FILL IN REFLECTOR)
—Hit RUN (wait about 15 to 20 seconds for report to be built below)
—Hit PRIORITY SORT on LAST Column “TX”
—CLICK ON PDF (goes to you download basket automatically on your PC/MAC)
Another interesting Stat summary is to go back to DATA VISUALISATION and click on the “QSOs/HR” dropdown.
