Introducing the RT84 - a 2m+70cm transceiver offering DMR and FM modes. It's a 5-watt dual-mode "handie" and is the "go to" for those looking for a rugged and versatile DMR solution - plus, you get conventional FM, too!. One of the benefits of DMR is the use of TalkGroups and Time-Slots which allow 2 conversations to take place on a single frequency. This means that a repeater not only for a local (RF) QSO but also support a world-wide link at the same time.
*** Next batch (of 10) are due Monday 18th and you can pre-order now ***
We don't just sell you the radio - We want it to be ready to go when you turn it on, so all radios include programming with your local DMR/FM repeaters (aka: local CodePlug) plus generic UK-wide DMR presets AND you get our laminated DMR Guide which gives you a quick 'n' easy reference to understanding the various TalkGroups, Time-Slots and operating the radio.
Please leave your Callsign and DMR ID in the "order notes" box during checkout for programming - if left blank, the radio will be supplied "UK-wide".
All UK DMR repeaters are programmed into the "Channels" of the CodePlug, but you will need to assign them to Zones if you visit diffierent areas regularly.
CodePlugs and Drivers

Just looking for a CodePlug?
This file contains pretty much all UK DMR+FM repeaters, EchoLink gateweays plus FM simplex frequencies. We have created several regional "Zones" so that nearby repeaters are grouped together, but you will need to add/edit others to suit your location. G6AMU's software (linked above) is excellent for this. We've also corrected some of the errors that appear in the online repeater database lookup (eg: repeaters on 448MHz!).
You can also import/export channels to CSV allowing you to make changes in Excel before re-importing for a different radio model. Sadly, there doesn't seem to be a way to import/export "Zones" between CSV files so if you do want to transfer "Channels" between radio models, you'll need to re-create the Zones yourself. The UKRepeaters website has useful maps of DMR+FM repeaters for this purpose.
For general assistance with CodePlugs (and other radios), your repeater keeper/group (or radio club) should be your first port of call - they'll be in a better postion to advise on TalkGroup availability etc. The files above are offered in good faith and are considered "tools" to help you learn+create - we are unable to assist you with your own CodePlug due to the level of customization required.
