Re: Do we need more subgroups. #poll


I agree assumptions usually get broken fast.

I'm strictly making that comment from what I've seen on this email list and what I've been asked to build for others that reach out to me. AllStar <> DMR being the most common and what builds to the bigger bridges that also include other modes.

destination may not have been the right word as all systems in a bridge is where we expect to hear audio. We this group lays out a bridge flow it usually has a start and end and the end is what i meant by destination in that <> flow.

I don't agree with the assumption that DMR is involved in every bridge. Does a bridge have a destination?

without making it "complicated". The destination would be the topic name.
I think we can assume DMR is the core mode. I don't think I've seen a bridge system someone has worked on that hasn't inluded DMR in the mix with the exception of one i'll talk about later.

I would think subgroups would be Allstar (we already have), main (already have for DMR and general), D-STAR, YSF, P25, NXDN. if you post in those subgroups then the assumption you are tying to bridge dmr to that mode. 

In the case of one i saw was allstar to YSF then you would probably pick YSF group and notate in the subject ASL <> YSF. 

i think this would keep things mostly separated as for topic discussions.

So the question becomes, I want to build a DMR <-> D-Star bridge, what subgroup do I use? DMR? D-Star?

somehow i missed it too i must have marked everything read when i got a backlog of messages from being away a few days......

I'm very much in favor of the subgroups, it makes things easier to ready when you know the topic ahead of time vs all being in one big email list.

Example Allstar subgroup vs main.

A very interesting thing has shown up in the voting so far. Though the majority of votes want separate subgroups, some of the people that answer questions voted to leave things the way they are.
