DMR basics

The world of Digital Voice on Amateur repeaters is expanding rapidly and DMR is becoming one of the more popular modes. There are many Upstate NY repeaters now supporting DMR. We will try to keep links to the latest DMR information here.

Remember - DMR is Push Then Talk!

NOT - Push To Talk!

Push / Pause / Talk ......Allow for Digital Delay...

After you get going with DMR you might want to try this software if you have multiple radio code plugs. DMR Contact Manager is a custom-designed software package designed for use with Connect Systems CS700/CS701/CS750/CS800/CS801/CS800D radios, as well as the Tytera MD-380/390/390GPS, TYT MD2017/MD9600, AnyTone AT-D868UV and AT-D858, Retevis RT3, and similar radios that use the RDT/RDB file formats. These units are MOTOTRBO-compatible DMR mobile radios suitable for both commercial and amateur radio applications.

Contact Manager makes it easy to maintain channel, zone, contact and call group information in these radios. It is fully compatible with the Ham-Digital database system and allows instant codeplug updates from a wide variety of sources.
