Rocco, WU2M added DMR capabilities to our 70cm repeater (445.075- MHz) KW2Y. The repeater now supports both FM and DMR. The repeater is configured to use color code 1 and both time slots are supported. A decision about which TS will be the primary will be taken at a later day. In addition, Rocco has requested the creation of the talk group Tryon Emcomm 31313 which is in the process of being fully assigned to us.
What is DMR? John, K3NXU has created a good DMR tutorial that should give you the basics. If you still have questions, please ask.
To finalize, Rocco has also provided a base code plug for the Baofeng RD-5R. First you need to get your DMR radio id number. After receiving your ID you will need to download the codeplug and open it with the Baofeng RD-5R programming software. Edit the “Boot Item” menu with your name and your call:
Then enter your radio ID and call on the “General Settings” menu:
Then upload the code to your radio. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
