MB7DAA UK's First standalone licensed DMR APRS Node **144.700 UK wide frequency**



Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery
http://blog.retevis.com/how-to-use-the-rt82-built-in-gps-to-report-aprs-location/ 

The idea to have a common frequency for DAPRS is to help create a better gps / DAPRS network and allow people to use their GPS compatible radios to send their location data.
Other DMR radios will be able to send a text message via the aprs network and receive as well, they could send a static GPS message if they wanted to.

As I understand it, some repeaters allow GPS data in on talkgroup 5057, but at the moment I can do this on a phoenix repeater.

Having the option to run a node, even side by side an existing analogue one would be very useful.

Go to the BrandMeiser self care website: www.bm-dmr.uk/dash/APRS1.html
set up your details example screenshot below







Now in the radio,

Create a new contact private call on 5057


Next create a channel



Set up GPS system



Now add the channel to a zone




Save the codeplug to the radio, select zone DAPRS and channel DAPRS (so we are 144.700 cc1 ts 2 and will pulse GPS data every 30 seconds on talkgroup 5057 private call)

Next the host spot just needs to be set to RX TX o 144.700 and DMR BM UK server





You will then be able to see the SMS messages in and out from the dashboard (Ignore the dstar bit)



Results can be monitored on https://APRS.fi
