QDMR, a GUI application and command line tool to program DMR radios

Translation status

qdmr channel editor

qdmr is a graphical user interface (GUI) application that allows to program several types of DMR radios. To this end, it aims at being a more universal codeplug programming software (CPS) compared to the device and even revision specific CPSs provided by the manufacturers. The goal of this project is to provide a single, comfortable, well-documented and platform-independent CPS for several types of (mainly Chinese) DMR radios.

There are several ways to install qdmr on your system ranging from simple app-package downloads to building qdmr from its sources. For a detailed list of instructions for your system, read the install instructions. Some distributions (see badge above) already added qdmr, thus easing the install using the system package manager.
