Getting into the world of digital voice communications using DMR is easy! Just follow the below four steps and you’ll be up and running in no time!
1. Check that you’re within the coverage area of the VA3XPR digital DMR repeater
2. Request a DMR-MARC Subscriber ID for your DMR radio
All radios on the DMR-MARC network require a unique Subscriber ID, so you will need to have one assigned before you can program your radio to operate on the VA3XPR digital DMR repeater. If you intend to have more than one DMR radio active at any given time, then you should request a unique Subscriber ID for each radio. Please do not transmit with your DMR radio on the DMR-MARC network until you have received a Subscriber ID from DMR-MARC and have this programmed into your DMR radio. Using ad hoc Subscriber ID numbers will cause conflicts with other users on the network.
3. Obtain a DMR radio and the required programming hardware & software
Obtain a DMR capable radio, the Customer Programming Software (CPS) and a programming cable from one of the sources listed on the FAQ page. Alternatively, you can visit an authorized dealer to have your radio programmed for a fee.
4. Program your DMR radio
