[chirp_users] TYT DMR Radios

The TYT cable is just a straight through cable.

CHIRP would need a lot of functionality added to support dmr.
First, the radio is like a "model 3" Motorola in that you need a
zone/channel assignment. You'd need to implement this to use analog only.
Then, to do dmr, you need timeslot, color code, and contacts.
For each channel it will need an individual or group contact set, as well
as an optional RX group list. You'll need to have the ability to edit the
contacts and group lists.

Not by any means saying it's impossible but it would be a big chunk of
architecture to add to a package that only implements analog for the time

Per http://www.linux-usb.org/usb.ids , this seems like 0483:df11 is:

   0483  STMicroelectronics
      df11  STM Device in DFU Mode

That's NOT a serial port.

The TYT dongle is not a serial device, here is the syslog dump I get when I
plug the TYT dongle with radio connected.

The DMRTOOLS talk to it just fine, now to figure out how to get it to talk
to the
radio from wine. Also the device does not appear in /dev unlike serial
