Drop QSO command in Brandmeister Manager

Post by KC3MLA » Wed Feb 13, 2019 2:37 am

N5BOC duplex, pi-star 3.4.17

Just got an API key to enable Brandmeister Manager.

What exactly does "Drop QSO" do? Drop private calls?

I understood that "DROP QSO" shut down all the talk groups and the QSOs in progress ... "Drop private calls" is the same but for private calls.
I get the same effect as DROP QSO sending TX on TG4000: more easy!

I don't see a "drop private calls" button, only "drop qso" and "drop all dynamic".

I know what a QSO is, but how is it defined in the Brandmeister environment? My guess is that it terminates the current transmission but as soon as someone out there keys up and starts talking, I start receiving it again.

Doesn't group TX to TG4000 terminate linking to dynamic TGs? And private TX to TG4000 terminates links to reflectors (outside the US)?

My memory could be wrong, but I believe the "drop qso" is a shim that goes directly to the server, useful when you've got folks that are not leaving enough time between PTT to let anyone else transmit. It is hard to send to TG 4000 when the radio won't transmit because the channel is busy, and (if you configured the radio to allow transmit even on busy channels) the hotspot is not listening anyway.

Duplex hotspot helps somewhat with that.
