Good chat with Mat @M0XPX - we ended up on the Michigan One DMR channel (3126) due to some unexplained limitations either in my radio, my repeater, the Brandmeister network, his hotspot, or his radio.
Bets are that I misprogrammed my RD-5R to tx on a different talkgroup than the repeater uses for dynamic channels. M0XPX could hear my calls on Feditalk, but I didn't hear his responses.
We concluded that DMR is indeed real radio because it doesn't always work.
If someone who is routinely monitoring that channel can confirm that they saw something on their rig (even if they were not there to hear it) I'd appreciate it.
Still not sure what time of day will naturally find everyone in sync.
