The RT84 is a 2m+70cm transceiver offering both 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 also get conventional FM.. 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 your local DMR repeater can support a local (RF-only) QSO as well as a world-wide link at the same time.
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.
All UK DMR+FM repeaters (plus EchoLink gateways) are programmed into the "Channels" of the CodePlug along with a number of regional "Zones" but you can easily create/edit the Zones using the software below.
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 a few starter "Zones" of common frequencies, but you will need to add/edit others to suit your location. Those purchase the radio above get a version with most UK areas in their own Zones.
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.
Here's a FREE UK Repeater (and EchoLink) CSV file for CHIRP which you can use as a starting block to load memories into a variety of VHF+UHF transceivers.
