Intro to DMR Presentation

I first presented this at the Tampa Amateur Radio Club on 9-17-18.

Into to DMR Presentation

St. Pete DMR Network Resorted

The network has now been restored at the St. Pete site. Since the frequency change a few months ago it the repeater has been disconnected from the MotoDMR c-bridge.

Repeater Info


Drew Park NXDN Repeater Online for Testing

Repeater went live 6/16/17 for testing. See repeater info here.

MOTOTRBO Out of Band

Please Note: This is a software CPS codeplug mod. Once this mod is performed, you must use the backup file created for any future editing out of band. any attempt to read the radio via the CPS will automatically restore default values instead of  “incorrect”, out of band frequency entries, and the process will have to be repeated again.

1. Download and install HxD, an excellent free HEX editor: Download Link
2. Launch MOTOTRBO CPS, and read the radio and save the file. Note the band limits (in my example (450.000 – 512.000 MHz) and leave the CPS window open.
3. Launch HxD, Click “Open RAM” and click on “mototrbocps.exe
4. Next, press control+R (or edit > replace)
5. Enter your current band limit (e.g. 450.0000) on the first field .
6. Enter your new, desired band limit (e.g. 420.0000) below.
7. Keep “datatype” at text-string, check the “unicode string” and “all” boxes, and click “Replace All”.
8. Click on “Save” (in the HxD utility).
9. Return to your open CPS program, change a few fields and make sure the changes took affect at the “device information” page (note the new split – 420 – 512 MHz!)
10. Pay attention! the next step is to edit your channels / frequencies AND SAVE THE FILE under a
new, different name. This saved file will now ALWAYS have the modified band split and should be
used from now on instead of reading the codeplug from the radio !

Any attempt to read the radio will result in the deletion of all “out of band” frequencies in the radio. It
will not be bricked, just the information would be lost. Use the saved file to restore the radio if this

Error Code List

#595- IP address conflict.

#1027- Out of region radio.

#1057- The firmware version in the radio is newer than that which the CPS can support. You need to update your version of CPS.

#1068- ?

Teradek Cube RF Info

Teradek Cube supported WiFi channels…

You can only use 20mhz of bandwidth on both bands. Using a higher then 20mhz will cause the unit to not connect right. I use WEP2-PSK with AES and that seems to work fine.

The cubes documentation has no info on this. At this time I do not know how much power it puts out on each band.

Ubiquiti RocketM to Cisco Router

Cisco Router -> RocketM (AP-WDS Mode) this will setup a transparent bridge to allow the Cisco to do the DHCP.

Ubiquiti Point-to-Multipoint (PtMP)

Point-to-Multipoint (PtMP) links are used routinely to serve up to 100 locations from a single Access Point (thanks to Ubiquiti’s airMax technology).


There are many approaches to providing PtMP services.  This example is the simplest, using a single Ubiquiti radio with an omnidirectional antenna to create a bridged network.  Even a simple IP addressing schema is included!


Clearly, a more complex approach is often desired; one that uses multiple Ubiquiti radios with sector antennas along with a fully routed (rather than bridged) configuration. That however, is not this article.  Most new users will benefit by starting with this simplified approach to become familiar with PtMP or to serve a smaller, limited area.

FIRST: Install a router as shown above. Configure it as a DHCP server with an IP pool that is large enough to serve the number of customer devices (e.g. – computers, printers, etc.) you need to serve. NOTE: The pool should not extend lower than The instructions for doing this are different for each router manufacturer. Please consult their FAQ for assistance if needed.


Configuration and Setup


Accessing the Radio:

  1. Restore your radio to FACTORY DEFAULT values. This is critical, especially if you are troubleshooting a problem.  To perform a reset, press-and-hold the [Reset] button, power-on, release the [Reset] button when the lights begin to flash.
  2. Connect the radio to your computer using an Ethernet cable. The Ethernet port is auto-sensing. You are not required to use a cross-over cable.
  3. Using a web browser, enter as the “URL” to gain access to the radio’s management console.
  4. Enter “ubnt” as the administration account and “ubnt” as the password.

Configure the radio labeled as (the Access Point):

A. Choose the |Wireless| tab and change only the following values:

  • Wireless Mode: Access Point
  • WDS: [X] Enable
  • Press the [Change] button

B. Choose the |Network| tab and change only the following values:

  • IP Address:
  • Press the [Change] button
  • Press the [Apply] button

DONE with this radio (the AP), proceed to Customer Radios after repeating steps 1-4 above with them
Configure the radios labeled as through .102 (the Customer Radios) above:

C. Choose the |Wireless| tab and change only the following values:

  • Wireless Mode: Station
  • WDS: [X] Enable
  • Press the [Change] button

D. Choose the |Network| tab and change only the following values:

  • IP Address: (increment by x.x.x.+1 for each additional Customer Radio … skipping
  • Press the [Change] button
  • Press the [Apply] button
  • repeat the steps in this section for all Customer Radios

If using a Cable/DSL Modem:

E. Reboot or power cycle the Cable/DSL modem off and on before using this link.



Radio Installation errata:

  • Install all outdoor radios using Ubiquiti ToughCable Pro (for routine installations) or ToughCable Carrier (when co-locating with a high-power VHF or UHF transmitter).
  • If the Access Point will be co-located with high-power VHF transmitters, use Ubiquiti ToughCable Carrier cable
  • Use UBNT’s supplied Power over Ethernet (PoE) adapters and plug them into properly grounded AC outlets

Configuring Customer Computing Equipment:

  • The router / DHCP server will serve configuration information to all connected computers. Configure computer equipment for “Automatic” configuration.



1 – Secure your installation – modify the default administration account

  • Select |System| tab > System Accounts
  • Administrative Username [change it from ‘ubnt’]
  • Hover over icon to the right, “Change Password” and change it
  • Press [Change] button, press [Apply] button

2 – Secure your wireless network from unauthorized use by others

  • Select |Wireless| Tab > Wireless Security
  • Security > WEP (this is the ONLY encryption available in this mode)
  • Preshared Key: [enter something long, but memorable to you]
  • Press [Change] button. Press [Apply] button.

Alternate Customer Premises Equipment

SOHO WiFi Router

Wiki BeansTalk-55x_WiFi_SOHO_Router.pngRather than terminate in a single device or computer, you may wish to provide your customers with a SOHO WiFi Router. Using a Ubiquiti device is advantageous because it allows you to manage the full network all the way into the home or business. It also provides an additional layer of security because you can isolate a customer from your wireless backhaul network very easily.


The isolation is a result of configuring your AP Router (the Gateway) to a different subnet (change from using to use instead) and then associating the SOHO routers WAN port on it, then having the SOHO router serve IP addresses to LAN customer devices within the 192.168.0.x subnet. This configuration makes the 192.168.1.x subnet invisible to customer devices!


The diagram to the right shows this variation graphically. The table below describes the simplest IP plan that will work. Instructions below that describe how to configure a Ubiquiti SOHO Router as described.

Begin by configuring your AP Router (Gateway) interface to Because each router is different, please refer to your router manufacturers FAQ for assistance.
