I got an alinco DMR radio. Does anyone in the club have experience with DMR? I'm trying to make sense of it all but it looks like I can't hit a digital repeater unless I program it with software? Does that sound right? It is a dj-md5tgp. The FM works fine but I was going to drive close to a DMR repeater and try it out but it looks like that's not possible without programming.
The first thing you need to do is get a DMR ID from RadioID.com. Then after you have been assigned a number then you will need to program in color code, talk groups and receive groups. I looked you radio up and it looks like it will work.
I would come to the club meeting this next Thursday when all of this will be explained. The program is on Basic DMR. It will be at 7:30 pm in room 1001 at MHCC. South end of the main campus building.
