Hi,

Yes I set the talkgroups, but I could have done it wrong of course.
I've not got my licence yet, and as such cannot give the radio a code to enable it to TX on dmr. Therefore, would the echo not work in my case anyway?

If you have a licence you can transmit, if you don't, you can't. You're also not really allowed to re-transmit somebody else's callsign without taking special measure - some of which are tricky to do. The parrot style record and replay devices come under these rules:

14 Recorded or retransmitted Messages
14(1) The Licensee may record and retransmit Messages addressed to the Licensee received from other Amateurs:
(a) with whom the Licensee is in direct communication; or
(b) which are intended for retransmission to a specified Amateur.
14(2) When recording and retransmitting the Message of another Amateur, if the Licensee also records and retransmits the Callsign of that Amateur, then the Licensee shall transmit the Callsign in such a way that the origin of the Message and the origin of the retransmission are clear.


It seems that the last bit isn't that easy - Station one transmits to you and your repeater, his callsign then goes out - how do people know they are listening to your transmitter and not his?

Nobody seems to bother - but the rules are quite difficult to implement?

A calling channel is just that. A common channel or frequency that is used to to call out for other users. A common place where people can listen out for their friends etc.

The usual protocol is to put a call out on the calling channel and once communications have been established then move to one of the working channels. This then leaves the calling frequency clear for others to do the same. It should not be used for lengthy chats and chin-wags.
