Hytera Network vs BrandMeister

Sorry for the confusion, we could not earlier comment this incredible and stupid rumours.
Thank you Kurt for jumping in.
Torsten was in US last weeks, I was on a business trip in UK, we had both limited access to the internet and it was really a surprise to find all the emails in the inbox now which talk about such causeless stupid rumours.
This may again show clearly why it is not possible to cooperate with this group.
This kind of competition and fighting each other has nothing to do any more with my understanding of Amateur Radio and Hamspirit.
It is not worth to lose more words on such stupid behaviour.


The developer team Torsten, Kurt, myself and all supporters are fully committed to DMR+.
For us Amateur Radio is no competition, we like the development of this system based on our own knowledge, own ideas, own code, legal code and tools, no matter if used for 1000 repeaters, or for 100 or for just our own 10.

To give you a brief overview on our next steps:

- A new DMR+Master 9.2x is in test since a few weeks.
This will provide a few new exciting features for dongle users.
We did not roll out more yet because we were busy with travelling and it makes no sense to spread a new release without being able to support it in the first days.

- A new IPSC-server is also in test.
The next version will fix a few bugs in the connection to the c-Bridge.
We brought up several connections from IPSC-servers to c-Bridges during the last weeks and a few more are in progress.
We also plan to integrate a dongle port to the IPSC-server and make it work independent from a DMR+Master.
There is also a nice feature under development which makes the configuration of the TG routing of repeaters much easier and more flexible.

- The DSTAR-DMR-gateway has been improved.
We have a new version in test since about 2 weeks which no longer needs the API of a Hytera repeater.
It works standalone at the DMR+ network, only needs an internet connection.
With this version we were able to improve the audio quality.
We no longer use an intermediate step with compressed audio like required by the API solution.
The new gateway now works from the test reflector DCS001_V to DMR+ test reflector 4012 and replaces the API version.

- We hope to probably also be able to improve the current API-based gateway with a new firmware for those who have it in use. But we need to test and verify it during the next days.

Believe us, there will be more new developments during next weeks and months.
Our activities are no competition which may give us any reason to give up.

For legal reasons it is not possible to make the DMR+ software open source.
There are many patents around DMR. Some people may believe that "ETSI standard" means open / free of patents and IPs, which is absolutely wrong.
We have SLAs and NDAs which help us to use these things in a legal way for our needs.
The contracts expressly do not allow us to make the code open source and public available.
The risk of abuse for commercial applications outsite of Amateur Radio is high.
