It is up to date with local frequencies and the entire world-wide RadioID DMR database as of 12-10-2019. No warranties are expressed or implied. This codeplug will be useful for people in range of SARA’s repeaters, but does not contain every repeater in the state. We strongly encourage you to customize this codeplug for your needs!

If you’d like to keep what you have just in case, you should read your radio with your programming cable and Anytone software and save the file as a backup.
To use this codeplug, you must download it, open it in your programming software, and MUST make changes on two screens,save the file locally, and write it to your radio:
Change 1: Under Digital…Radio ID List, change the Radio ID to your DMR ID number. This is the 7 digit number you have when you registered on RadioID.net or DMR-MARC. Also change the Name to your callsign on the same screen.
Change 2: Under Public…Optional Settings: Change the Startup screen to something that makes sense to you. This is free form and not needed by DMR – but is what will appear when you turn the radio on.
Change 3 (optional): You may also wish to at least review the button settings to see what the various buttons on the front panel and microphone are configured to do, and perhaps customize them for your needs.
You can choose other options for each button if you like under Optional Setting…Key Functions. There are many, many buttons to configure on this radio between the front panel and hand mic.
