MMDVM Modem


Analog: 
To use analog set TX and RX tone to 103.5Hz, this will filter out the digital noise when analog mode is used. (Digital modes will have priority over analog and there are no courtesy tones)

DMR: 
First of all you must register for a DMR ID number which must be programmed into your radio.

Probably the easiest option to get started is to obtain a codeplug for your particular transceiver. EI7IG has a sample codeplug for the Retevis RT8 which has all the required settings for the repeaters.

The codeplug along with other useful DMR information can be found here on EI7IG's page.
Don't forget to add your own DMR ID number to the codeplug.

Our repeaters are connected to the Brandmeister Network.
