Bridging is defined as connecting a talk group to another server which allows user to connect to. BrandMeister supports OpenBridge, XLX, YSF, NXDN Reflectors and connection to WiresX nodes.
Even though BrandMeister supports the ability to bridge to reflectors and servers each Master Server Admin has discretion of reviewing and approving bridge connections. Please be respectful and patient when requesting a bridge connection.
