NEDECN will permit Hot Spot connections for the convenience of NEDECN Members in areas of poor repeater coverage, or those who are traveling and away from New England for seasonal or other reasons. A limited subset of talk groups will be provided through our partner CAN-TRBO’s IPSC2 Gateway. Any abuse or technical issues such as looping, cross-linking, high loss rates or robotic keyups will result in blocking of the user at fault.
Further configuration info can be found at:
Every Thursay night, after the SKYWARN net, there will be a discussion group on NETAC1 talk group for Questions, Answers and Presentations regarding Hot Spots. This will commence at 8 PM. Go here for further information: Hot Spot Office Hours
HBLink and DMR Bridges
NEDECN is focused on providing a reliable, quality communications infrastructure throughout the New England states. To meet that objective we require a controlled, authenticated network architecture. Experimental software gateways have not provided the level of control and network management that our repeater owners and trustees require. No HBlink gateways and DMR Bridges meet NEDECN criteria. Any such links will be terminated.
