Galaxy has been our preferred partner for sim cards with data usage. About a year ago Galaxy was merged with the Internet provider EDPNET who wanted to extend their mobile market share.
Now the second stage in the merge is ongoing and existing customers will receive new sim(s) to swap to the new provider (new branded sim card with other APN). You will receive a package by land mail with new sim card(s) and an explanation on how to migrate.
New customers and migrated customers will have another APN than existing customers. If you register a new sim card or when you already received your new sim cards & migrated them, your APN must be set to data.be.
Don’t set your APN to data.be if you are not migrated yet, this will not work.
And last but not least: This migration will result in a later stage next year in lower fee’s per mb. Ain’t that good news!
A few photos of the Zello Radio Benelux event at Denderhoutem 2019-08-18. Many thanks to Rik – for providing the location and catering! Very nice afternoon and nice to meet everyone. Looking forward to the next episode!
It took a while but finally my Telo TE-59O arrived today.
I’ve been waiting for this device since mid december, but the delivery was postponed due to reasons out of my or the dealers hand.
From my point of view this is the best quality in Network Radio you can buy for the moment: audio-, built- & display quality. And I love the big display, huge advantage in operation various apps. But again, that’s a very personal matter!
More info on the device here: Telo Systems I got mine on Network-Radios.co.uk with great support and follow up! (Keep in mind that there is a version with Google Apps and a version without! )
Although we are not Radio Amateurs, the years in experience of those users might come in handy sometimes. Next to that there are also al lot of Amateur Radio Users in the Network Radio Channels and they have the habit of using their own language and habits. For example: leaving space after a transmission to have other users join in or interrupt with a question. Here’s a short guide!
On mobile devices you can map the P1/2/3/4 buttons to go to a channel/contact in Zello with Button Mapper. In theory you can map any hardware button to a channel or contact except for buttons that are preoccupied by the Zello app: SOS-button, PPT , … If you still use your dialer, make sure you map the long press key and not the single press key.
Rename the channels you want to add to 01, 02 and so on …
Add the buttons in Button Mapper and for every button add the Action: “Broadcast Intent” to single tap (for CH 05 to 08 use long press)
In the field “action” add “com.dfl.knob” (without the brackets)
in the field “key:value” add “frequencyNum:XX” where XX is the number of the channel(01, 02…)
save and try
Warning: This only works in the donation version!!!
This also works with other numbers, so if you have allready setup different numbering on your account you can also map “03 ZRB to P2” or “16 Mom to P4” If you want to use the “single press” on the P1, you should config the “long press” on P1 identical to the “short press.” Otherwise it will not work with “short press” We don’t know why but that’s the work around we found 😉
