As at 26th August 2018, there has been a change to the access via hotspots and dongles.
Users connect to the “Phoenix F” server and are able to access various talk groups without the requirement to dial a reflector.
Hotspot/dongle users can monitor the Phoenix F server via http://www.dmr-uk.net/index.php/announcements/ which allows them to see the traffic as well as accessible talk groups via the Matrix tab.
Via Pi-Star, users can set various talk groups as static (5 in total) by adding the options listed on the Github site (https://github.com/g4klx/MMDVMHost/blob/master/DMRplus_startup_options.md). Note that if you are using a simplex device, that you will hear any traffic from both slots.
DMR Plus reflectors are still accessible via TG9 as per the standard DMR Plus routine.
