Radioddity GD-77 Codeplug

John, GM1YME, has produced a codeplug which he has made available as stated in the message he sent me below: – Feel free to share my GD-77 codeplug which has all UK Analogue and DMR repeaters in it plus other useful frequencies. It’s optimised for Scotland but can easily be changed. http://www.gm1yme.uk

GB7CE – Colchester

Gary, M6FCV, got in touch to advise that the GB7CE Fusion repeater in Colchester is dual mode and therefore will support analogue FM. I’ll add it to the codeplugs when vetting has been completed.

As I understand it the plan is to use an MMDVM system to enable the repeater to handle D-STAR, Fusion, P25 and DMR modes. When I have the required information regarding which DMR network […]

PMR 446

I’ve recently discovered that OFCOM changed some of the PMR 446 restrictions. Primarily OFCOM have removed the demarcation between analogue and digital frequencies in the 446.0 and 446.2 MHz range. So the 16 channels can be used for either FM or DMR subject to the usual restrictions on power and antenna etc. These changes have […]
