Brandmeister does not seem to send Talker Alias on Private Calls

Post by VK3KYY » Sun Aug 23, 2020 6:28 am

Guys,

I have been investigating a bug, where only the caller ID number is being shown for Private Calls if the person who calls you, is not in your Contacts or the DMR ID database that has been loaded into the radio.

I think I have tracked down the problem, as it seems to be caused because Brandmeister does not seem to be sending Talker Alias information for Private Calls.

I don't have any other radios which support Talker Alias, so I'm wondering if anyone has noticed this on a non OpenGD77 radio e.g. perhaps an Anytone, which supports Talker Alias.
Note, the Anytone would need to Not have the other stations ID as a contact or in the DMR ID for this to be tested.

I can't find any way to contact Brandmeister themselves, because they seem to do support via Facebook, and I'm unable to access FB for various ethical and technical reasons.
