5197DMR Workshop We will be hosting a DMR Workshop on Feb. 18th at the Phoenix chapter. The workshop will touch on the difference between analog and DMR, the basics of using your AT-878 handheld radio, an introduction to codeplugs, and how to modify them. You will need to bring your radio and laptop, if you have one, to work through editing a codeplug.  This is a hands-on session. There is no virtual Teams meeting available for this workshop.

We will have a basic codeplug available to help you get started with your DMR radio.  After you get comfortable with the radio, you can add more zones and channels to personalize your radio to suit your needs.

If you have not already done so, you will need to register for a DMR ID.  Registration is free and is required in order to use digital repeaters. You can do this online at https://radioid.net/account/register
