So, that's the issue. If you use Pi-Star, the host file comes from
Andy Taylor MW0MWZ (The author of Pi-Star) Andy starts with the the
host file from Jonathan G4KLX which is here <https://github.com/g4klx/P25Clients/blob/master/P25Gateway/P25Hosts.txt
There is nothing sacred about the file. Pi-Star give the user the
ability to add custom entries. If I dont use Pi-Star I can edit the
host file to my liking.
Pi-Star is a "repackaging" of the software from G4LKX. That is not
to say Andy does not add value. He certainly does and I would
venture to say that without Pi-Star (or something like it) DV
hotspots would not have taken off like it did.

How do I get my P25 reflector/TG to show up in the pulldown
in the P25 section of the configuration screen of every
Pi-Star hotspot in existence?

Where people get their host file depends on where they get

Another question is, what determines whether the TG

The P25Reflector software does not actually care
what TG it reflects. When the reflector sees UDP
traffic on the proper port, it reflects it to all
The program that determines what TG, is actually
P25Gateway in it's host file:
# 10200 North America
This tells P25Gateway, when you see traffic on TG
10200 send the traffic to dvswitch.org
(188.8.131.52) on UDP port 41000.
As to the name, again it's in the P25Gateway host

I'm having some difficulty while installing the
whole package (G4-somebody/dvswitch) using the 927.org instructions
(which is riddled with typos);
I've read everything I've been able to google,
both here and elsewhere, but I'm stuck on a
concept or two:
What (and WHERE or WHO) determines what your newly
installed P25 reflector's TG ID is?
I probably will choose not to publish the TG (at
first, at least) but where do I give it its name?
I saw a thread where Steve says some ppl are using
the same #
as their chosen DMR TG (which already exists; I'm
trying to link them)?
