Here's a good PRA-focused starter codeplug for the TYT dual-banders. It has all the Brandmeister talk groups pre-defined as digital contacts, and channels are pre-built for all front-range analog repeaters.

As the UV380/390 is dual channel, you'll see in the zone configuration how I like to use the "A" channel for analog monitoring and the "B" channel for digital.

To use this codeplug, simply open it in the TYT CPS software, set your Radio Name and DMR Radio ID on the General Settings page and upload to your radio. To add channel(s) for additional talk groups you're interested in, create new channel(s) following one of the PRA Mega channels as an example. Set the Channel Name accordingly and the Contact Name to the desired talk group. Add the newly defined channel to your desired Zone and you're ready to upload. Note there are three PRA DMR repeaters - make sure you use the one closest to you.

This codeplug works with any of the TYT dual-band radios - the UV380, UV390 (waterproof), and the older 2017.

Lastly, be sure to grab a copy of G6AMU's awesome DMR Codeplug Editor. Cathy's editor is a must-have for TYT owners as it allows reordering and insertion of contacts, channels, etc. G6AMU's editor can also convert between TYT models so you can use it to convert this codeplug for older single-band radios too.

Got a hotspot? Check out my advanced codeplug (it's not that tough).

Thanks for all your efforts on the dtarter Code Plug for my new UV-380. This is my first venture into DMR. I haven't got it working with my Hot Spot yet but still trying. 

Thanks Again,

Alan KD0HV

@al My pleasure! Any questions, don't hesitate to ask. A good 2/3 of the PRA members are DMR users. Because DMR is really a commercial radio platform, some of the stuff can seem a little strange for ham use.
