This is a free download containing a starter CodePlug for the Anytone AT-D878UVii handheld transceiver. It may also be possible to use it with other Anytone radios.
We have written our own CodePlug generator that contains a database of UK repeaters/gateways plus the TalkGroups available on the DMR network - it then produces a large Excel spreadsheet which we prune into a manageable CSV file to load into the Anytone software. This includes all DMR+FM repeaters plus MB6/MB7 gateways. Where a repeater offers multi-mode operation, there'll be separate channels for digital and FM.
Anytone radios permit easy "dial-in" of TalkGroups, so there are minimal entries "per repeater" - this means that you can select a custom TalkGroup via the keypad when you wish to TX. A few Zones are offered as a starter but it's up to you to add your local repeaters into them. There is also a UK+Ireland "Contacts" list stored in the radio. The popular "TS1 ALL" / "TS2 ALL" channels are retained allowing you to monitor *all* activity on a particular Time-Slot without needing to find the active TalkGroup.
WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO DO:
In order to get on-air with this CodePlug, you will have to carry out the following:
This CodePlug file is offered on a free "take it as you find it" basis without any kind of support - we used it as a starting block for our own radio.
We may update this file from time-to-time as repeater/network configurations change. Our database takes the UKRepeater listing plus information from other DMR websites to ascertain the specific regions/links/talkgroups for each repeater - where possible, we've included default "TalkGroup links" but may not have been able to find them all.
CHIRP CSV File [repeaters updated 2nd October 2023]
You can also grab our FREE UK Repeater (and EchoLink) CSV file for CHIRP which you can use to load memories into your radio. This file contains all 2m/70cm GB3/GB7/MB6/MB7 systems (over 800 entries) for use with FM and digital (DMR, Fusion etc) radios.
Open this file in CHIRP, then "read" from your own radio (this will give you 2 tabs) - you can then copy+paste memories across before sending them back to the radio. You can use CTRL/SHIFT to block select items, move memories up/down etc. On some radios, the FM mode may not always be consistent for 2m "Narrow" Deviation: It could be FM or NFM. "Wide" may be FM or WFM. The "Wide" setting is for full 25KHz-spaced channels and broadcast radio.
