Before you can transmit on the PRN system you will need to purchase a radio that is compatible with DMR. Below are links to some of the manufacturers, along with a links to some Amateur Radio friendly dealers. Make sure that the radio you purchase is able to be used in the Amateur Radio band. For example, some Motorola radios come in two band splits for UHF, 403-470 and 450-512 MHz. And while some sellers will tell you that you can use the higher split in the Amateur band, it is not an easy process. So, make sure to get a radio with the 403-470 MHz split so that it will transmit properly in the Amateur band.
While you are waiting to get your radio, you should request a Radio ID. Almost all DMR repeater owners throughout the world follow the DMR-MARC ID scheme, so you will want to get an ID from them. You may go to the following web page to request an ID:
When requesting an ID, use the name you want to show up in the Contact list of peoples radios. We also use your name as listed to load into the c-Bridge, so that is what shows up on the Last Heard list on this site. It is okay if it is a nickname, middle name, or shortened first name such as Bill instead of William, for example.
Once you receive your radio, you can then program your Radio ID into it. If you are not able to program your radio, feel free to contact us and we will make sure you can get your radio programmed. If you are able to program your radio, we suggest using one of the generic code plugs available in the Downloads section of this site to get you on the air quickly, and to use them as a guide to customize your radio to your liking.
Remember: DMR HT's are unlike Ham HT's in that when you key the HT, you send a signal to the repeater and the repeater responds back to you to acknowledge you can transmit your message. If you do not receive the repeater's acknowledgement, your radio will stop transmitting and you will hear a negative confirmation tone.
