Peter - a Public MMDVM Portal into PNWDigital

UPDATE:  We have a new public server with expanded talkgroup deck, now testing.  Only change needed to access the server is the DNS:

Server Settings for Peter (MMDVM Server)


Server UDP: 55555

Password: passw0rd

Server is located in Kennewick WA

Connector:  HotSpot/MMDVM
Protocol: MMDVM

When setting up an openSPOT, be sure to have the "advanced mode" checkbox checked so that you can enter the server IP and UDP port into the fields and then click Add Server. Do NOT enable "Use DMRplus options". (See: Image 1, Image 2).

Be sure that the "DMRplus options for DMRplus" setting does NOT have the "Use DMRplus options" checkbox checked (see image).


While Peter is a public portal, PNWDigital.Net also has a number of member portals with more extensive talkgroup decks.  We currently have 9 MMDVM servers with varying talkgroup decks and purposes.  2 of those servers are designed to support 2 slot repeaters and hotspots.

This original project is based on the great work of multiple folks going back 7 years or so.  All software is open-sourced and available on GitHub by Cort, N0MJS and his crew of supporters.  Also kudos to and for the fine assistance of Corey N3FE, one of the USA Brandmeister admins who initially shepherded our efforts at PNWDigital.Net.  Also to Vance, W6SS for being the one who coded the installation script (still used by our new use of Docker) and explained how it worked, which is instrumental to enabling Linux neophytes to be able to install and manage their own MMDVM projects. And finally to Dylan KI7SBI, who put this project inside a Docker file to enable multiple MMDVM servers to reside on a single VM.
