DCI Codeplugs

Codeplug Directories: SC/NC-PRN, ChicagoLand, Dayton, DCI, PNW and Others

NOTE: DCI is no longer actively maintaining codeplugs except for PNW DMR and those are now in their Yahoo support Group


These codeplugs are primarily an effort to assist travelers and visitors interested in using the DCI local area IPSC repeaters.  Novice TRBO programmers might also find this plug informative.  This codeplug doesn't attempt to include specialized talkgroups or other features for every network.  DCI's codeplugs are helpful to show programmers how to set-up zones, modes, RX groups, scan and roaming lists and how this all interacts.  Otherwise, our plug enables quick and easy access to the main or common talkgroups on our networked repeaters.  We use the best tech settings for each IPSC network.  All traveling hams are welcome to use the DCI and TRBO-6 repeaters.

The codeplugs may be contributed by hams who have a specific interest or area, so the focus or coverage areas may be quite narrow.  Look for an informational text file in the directory as it may have further specifics on the codeplugs including the author who should get feedback and especially any corrections or updates you may know.  And as always your mileage may vary.  Some may be quite stale so please factor that into the mix when deciding to use any of our codeplugs.

This codeplug handles repeaters on the NCPRN system  www.ncprn.net Throughout all of NC, SC, and a few repeaters in WV and VA.  Updates to this codeplug should be checked at:  www.ncprn.net/downloads.html.  The N2ZZ repeater reaches into Augusta, GA. 

ChicagoLand Greater Chicago area including DCI and MARC repeaters WB2PHK
Dayton Hamvention over the years NO7RF
DCI Many North America DCI repeaters, stale and no longer updated NO7RF
PNW Pacific Northwest TRBO Group; 5 repeaters for CSI and TRBO NO7RF
Others Odds N Ends from Time to Time  

Most directories have text files containing additional information and details on the plugs from their authors.  Please contact them directly for information, corrections, updates or to say thanks for your efforts.

Currently, these UHF codeplugs may have listings for DCI as well as a few c-Bridge Talkgroups and national Simplex Modes.  Some may include Talkgroups and RX Groups for each network, Scan, HT and Mobile Roaming lists for NorCal, as well as sampler zones and scan lists for FRS, GMRS and the Win System.  This may also be useful information for setting up your own codeplugs.  A few other IPSC networks may be included in this plug also.

Codeplug Pasting shows you how to on clip n paste from one Motorola codeplug to another with the least effort, lost data and those pesky typos.

We have also adopted a VHF and UHF National TRBO Simplex frequency as well as a few others as alternates and now include a "UHF Simplex" zone in the codeplug.  This should be useful at Hamfests, Conventions and commercial or industry gatherings for those areas which may not have an available TRBO repeater or for those who don't have the local repeater programmed in their radios.  Catch the discussion in our MTUSA Yahoo group. UHF and VHF frequencies/talkgroups are also located in our repeater listing page.

The latest DMR-MARC "Contact" list is included for all USA based hams based on space available.  Any additions or corrections in the digital "Contacts" should be taken up with DMR-MARC directly as they have dedicated substantial energy to maintain a complete world-wide listing for all Ham TRBO interests.

These codeplugs may contain typos, stale info or omissions.  You may send corrections, additions, deletions or new network information to DCI to be included in or deleted from the next update of this plug and webpage.  If you have any other TRBO talkgroup/timeslot combinations as well as open analog repeaters useful to TRBO travelers/visitors, that information is welcome and may be included in the local zone, primarily on a zone space available basis (ie: 16 modes max per zone in an HT).

Lastly, our work here is in part, the work of other networks that put in the labor to share their information.  We appreciate the openness of these groups which enables a far smoother network operation as much as providing local users easier access to their repeaters.  You might even send a word of thanks to your local repeater and c-Bridge owners as their efforts are not insignificant on many levels.
