Wow, was that page translated to English, or can someone really spell that poorly?

Looks like you wouldn't want to use some of these radios on amateur repeaters even if you could.

  Thanks Neil. I've just been looking at the links from John, and yeah, getting a sense that there's lots more going on there. 





  In terms of being able to just talk to the radio though, are they different? Basically wondering if software could read the whole works, update the bits it does understand, and then put it all back. 



  The openspot devices look interesting too, thanks.

    dmr is more complex to program than a 1 dimension memory layout of analog radios. theres talkgroups, colours, zones, contacts etc and they have to be then stitched together by the software. a sharkrf openspot may be usefull to you if no local repeaters. recommended. i got 2 😊

    otherwise, chirp is the best app for me on my other fleet of radios, works great.

    Thanks John.

    Do you know if that's a technical limitation, or just means that there 
    hasn't been anyone trying to work with this model yet? Are the protocols 
    used to talk to the radios documented anywhere? Could always look at the 
    source I suppose.  <grin>

    For what it's worth, it turns out I don't have a digital repeater in my 
    area yet anyway, but will be looking to set up for regular analog use.
