|Description||Indiana Statewide Talkgroup|
Group call #3118, better known as Indiana Statewide, is the preferred talkgroup for wide-area, intrastate DMR communications within the State of Indiana, USA. Originally hosted on the core cBridge of DMR-MARC, talkgroup 3118 was relinquished by DMR-MARC in April of 2014 and hosted by the Hoosier DMR network until the summer of 2017, at which time, Hoosier DMR split from their cBridge based topology, W9SMJ-NET, and became a wholly networked entity of the BrandMeister network. This allowed the talkgroup to become available to thousands of repeaters worldwide on the BrandMeister network, along with several other ICBO's and networks that source the BrandMeister feed. Thankfully in February of 2018, through a joint effort to make Indiana DMR great again, with the trustees and administrators of the W9SMJ-NET & IN-1 Indiana cBridge based networks, a memorandum of understanding was agreed upon with the BrandMeister and Hoosier DMR networks to unify the 3118 talkgroup, thereby allowing all repeaters in Indiana, both cBridge and BrandMeister based, a unified, wide area platform for all stations to communicate on. This amalgamation also allowed a link for 3118 to be reestablished the DMR-MARC based network, Tri-State DMR, making 3118 a truly united talkgroup once again.
If your ICBO or network is interested in carrying Indiana 3118, please reach out to the BrandMeister sysop team.
