FreeDMR has Multiple Servers

FreeDMR has many servers, ythey are all connected, and you can join any one of them with your hotspot by selecting the server in the DMR Master field in the Pi-Star configuration. In Australia we use one of three server by convention but you can use any server world wide if yoiu desire.
There are three Australian Servers and each has it's own dashboard.
  1. FreeDMR-Australia
  2. FreeDMR-Australia-2
  3. FreeDMR-Australia-3


Which are the best Dashboards?

There are many choices of Dasboards with FreeDMR. Each server has its own dashboards and then any MMDVM Repeater will have a PI-Star Dashboard. So there are basically two types of Dashboards, FreeDMR Servers type and the Pi-Star type. They are quite different in the way they present data. As to which is best is a matter of private opinion. I am currently using the FreeDMR-Australia Server so I have one sceen open on this and I am transmitting via the VK4RBA Repeater so I have it's Pi-Star Dashboard open on a second screen.
