    Here are two of the best tutorials on Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) I have found.

    Part 1 – Discusses DMR terminology with a general overview.

    Part 2 – Is an actual tutorial on DMR Radio Programming.

    These two documents will bring you up to speed quickly.

    There is a 3rd party Code Plug editor that is a great find. Currently it does Motorola, some TTY radios. Called Contact Manager

    http://n0gsg.com/contact-manager/Contact_Manager.pdf

    The really great thing is throughout the program documentation there are tips to avoid pitfalls when programming.

    This is worth a look for sure.

    Found a new method of doing private or specific group calls in DMR mode. If you create your own Talk Group (TG) you can Key it active. Anyone else that keys up to that same Talk Group number will be able to chat with you.
    They are calling it a Adhoc Talk Group.

    I tested this with another Ham, we both created a TG 31000077, once you key it up, you have a private TG. If you want to make it a semi-private multi user group, just give out the TG number to other hams and you all have your own temporary TG.

    Could not get it to play. On an iPad, might be the issue.

    Here is a tip for winding wire antennas for storage. I use a Kite Reel to wind the wire for storage.

    Amazon has these for under $10

    I remove the kite twine and cut a notch where the twine is guided onto the spool. I drilled a hole in the reel to feed the wire onto the reel. The Kite Reel has a folding handle and a ratchet stop. I wind 75 feet of wire from my End Fed antenna on the reel for storage. This would work for portable radial wires as well. Keeps the wire stored smoothly without kinking and is easy to wind up or deploy.

    Fred / John,

    This question interested me enough that I tried some research. I spoke with Powerwerx and they also have no standard. However, I took a look at the solar power world and found something interesting. In solar controllers, they use Red as the baseline battery connector color. On the solar array side (multiple voltages) they use Yellow as the standard connector color. Yellow is enough o a difference in color to make you at least question the voltage if nothing else.
