Template:Table Trbosys/doc


Contents

Documentation Sub-page for Template:Table_Trbosys

Scope of Use

Purpose

  • This template is to be used to define the Frequencies, slots, color codes of any DMR / MOTOTRBO trunked system. In addition, each frequency can be appended with a short comment. If longer descriptions are necessary, add a new section at the bottom of the table, and describe in detail.
  • This template is required because the current version of the RRDB does not display this information correctly, if at all.

Directly Invoked By

  • Any TRS that contains the Tracker_DMR template.


Parameters

Parameter Name Var Description Expected Value(s) Default Value Notes
TrunkName
  • The name of the TRS as defined in the RRDB

CommentsxA
  • A Short description or comment on usage
ChanNumxB
  • The channel number for slot 2 - see Usage Notes below
ColorCodexB

  • A Short description or comment on usage
StateName
  • The State (or Province) in which this TRS resides
A value is Required

Usage Notes

  • If there are multiple sites to this system, define 1 page for each site.
  • Slot numbers in the template are stated as A or B, but in reality they are slots 1 and 2. This convention was chosen to avoid confusion when reading channel numbers and slots together - for example, if we wish to define channel 01 slot 1, if someone printed 011, it would be very easy to think this was channel 11. The letters A and B reinforce the 2 slot principle without sacrificing accuracy.
  • CAUTION - The entry of frequencies in the RRDB has been highly variable in its accuracy. Many are attempting to represent the same frequency twice in an attempt to display slots 1 and 2. This results in the system showing the frequencies repeated twice.
  • There is space in the template for a total of 64 channels (32 channels x 2 slots / channel). Not all channels need to be filled - if there's only 10 frequencies in the system, then the rest should be removed from the copy of the template being applied. The rest will be resolved automatically. x should vary from 1 to 32.
  • The COLOR template can be used to make the frequencies red or blue, to correspond with known primary or alternate control channels.

Examples

  • The horizontal lines below separate examples for clarity and do not appear when template is invoked.


How to invoke this template

Note that there are only 2 frequencies, with 2 slots, in this system. The rest of the template is not needed, and is dropped.
