If you are constructing a code-plug that supports the KC7MCC, N7IBC and W7CIA DMR repeaters, it is recommended interleaving channels for each of the repeaters as contiguous channels of a like talk-group to promote driving safety. For example, if the TS1 NET for the KC7MCC DMR repeater is adjacent to the channel for the N7IBC DMR repeater, and then the W7CIA DMR repeater, you will not need to change zones when mobile operation requires you to move from one repeater to the next. You will only need to change channels.
Dynamic talk-groups (i.e. push-to-talk talk-groups), residing on time-slot 1, are available to stations directly using the KC7MCC DMR repeater with DMR Tier II equipment, or by stations using analog repeaters that are on the CIARC 33cm link back-bone (when enabled). While stations on DMR will have the ability to activate a specfic dynamic talk-group, users from the CIARC link back-bone do not have the ability to select a talk-group and can only use the talk-group that is currently activated.
Calls initiated from other repeaters that are on the BrandMeister network, and appearing as a dynamic talk-group on time-slot 1, will be heard on the CIARC repeater network whenever the 33cm link is enabled. Any traffic on the CIARC repeater network will be heard on the active dynamic talk-group on time-slot 1. This means that your traffic may be heard on other repeaters in Idaho (and other regions, states, countries). The 33cm link will be disabled during the monthly CIARC NET, and at other times at the discretion of the control operator(s).
The KC7MCC 70cm/UHF DMR Repeater, N7IBC 70cm/UHF DMR Repeater and W7CIA 2m/VHF DMR Repeater are configured to subscribe to a cluster on Time-Slot 1 / Talk-Group 8 and to another cluster on Time-Slot 2 / Talk-Group 2. Respectively, these channels are named TS1 NET and TS2 NET. Any communications occurring on any of these repeaters will be heard on that repeater and the other two repeaters when one of these channels is used. Clustered Talk-Groups are STATIC.
The maintaining of a static talk-group on both time-slots is not conventional. The purpose of doing so is to support primary NET operations on one time-slot, and allowing traffic to be moved off of the primary NET and onto the secondary NET in order to maintain communications capability while allowing the primary NET to serve, unimpeded by traffic, as a coordinating NET. The convention that has been established for these two clustered time-slot/talk-group pairs is that the primary NET operations will be conducted on TS2 NET while off NET traffic will be handled on TS1 NET.
A composite coverage prediction for repeaters included in these clustered channels is shown below:
