WikiPedia: Digital mobile radio (DMR) is a limited open digital mobile radio standard defined in the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) and used in commercial products around the world. DMR, along with P25 phase II and NXDN are the main competitor technologies in achieving 6.25 kHz equivalent bandwidth using the proprietary AMBE+2 vocoder. DMR and P25 II both use two-slot TDMA in a 12.5 kHz channel, while NXDN uses discrete 6.25 kHz channels using frequency division and TETRA uses a four-slot TDMA in a 25 kHz channel.
Getting started in DMR can be a bit scary but once you get the concept of how to program a DMR radio, you will be able to concur DMR. We are working on some videos and things to add, but with DMR that’s the one thing you can find pretty easily so do use youtube to find some great videos! Please hang with us as we are building out this section of the site!
